Bill helps medical marijuana users access organ transplants
San Diego Union-Tribune

California lawmakers have passed a bill that prevents medical marijuana users from being denied organ transplants just because they use pot.

The state Senate on Monday passed AB258 by Democratic Assemblyman Marc Levine of San Rafael on a 33-1 vote.

Supporters say some patients who use medical marijuana have been denied life-saving organ transplants because they are treated by doctors as drug abusers.
