Senators take stance on legalized marijuana

by Nick Delgado

Guam - KUAM News contacted the members of the 30th Guam Legislature to get their take on Bill 420, the Compassionate Healthcare Act of 2010, which would legalize the use of marijuana on Guam for medicinal purposes.  Those who were in favor of the legislation include Speaker Judi Won Pat and senators Judi Guthertz and Tina Muna-Barnes.

Senators who are opposed to Act are Adolpho Palacios, Frank Blas, Jr. and Eddie Baza Calvo.

It appears though that many lawmakers are still yet undecided and want to further research the measure - namely senators B.J. Cruz, Tom Ada, Ben Pangelinan, Ray Tenorio, Jim Espaldon, Telo Taitague and Tony Ada.

KUAM News did not receive a call back from Senator Frank Aguon, Jr.
