Puerto Rico Now Has Legal Medical Marijuana

Puerto Rico's governor has signed an executive order that authorizes the use of medical marijuana in the U.S. territory in a surprise move following a lengthy public debate.

 

Gov. Alejandro Garcia Padilla says the island's health secretary has three months to issue a report detailing how the executive order is being implemented, the impact it has had and what future steps could be taken. The order went into effect on Sunday.
