Senate passes medical marijuana bill

DENVER—The Senate has passed a bill preventing recreational pot
users from skirting the law to obtain medical marijuana is headed.

The Senate voted 34-1 on Monday to back the measure, Senate Bill 109,
and send it to the House.

It would bar doctors from writing recommendations inside dispensaries
that sell medical marijuana. It requires that doctors review a person's
medical history and give them a full exam before recommending that they
become a legal user of medical marijuana.

Those between 18 and 21 would have to get the approval of two doctors,
which is already required for patients under 18.
