"Virginia senate approves medical marijuana"

From Jurist:

Virginia's Senate approved legislation on Monday allowing doctors to prescribe oils containing mostly non-psychoactive cannabis extracts, making Virginia part of the majority of states to approve medical marijuana.

The bill [text, PDF] was approved unanimously in both the state house and senate. Under the legislation, Virginia's doctors will determine which patients may use medical marijuana, as long as they have "any diagnosed condition or disease determined by the practitioner to benefit from such use."
