By a 79-64 vote, the Connecticut house of representatives rejected a bill last week that would have allowed seriously ill patients to grow, buy, and use marijuana to treat symptoms of their illnesses, the Bridgeport Connecticut Post reports. The bill would have allowed doctors to give their patients with AIDS, cancer, and other serious illnesses certificates entitling them to use marijuana and grow up to three mature and four immature marijuana plants. Democratic state representative James Abrams, who sponsored the legislation, said he will change some of its language and reintroduce it next year.
