"Currently, the state of Mississippi is still in the process of pending a legislative vote on the issue of medical marijuana. The state of Mississippi has outlined several key factors for the medical marijuana program that would take place within the state, but has not yet been officially enacted. On February 5th, 2013 a medical marijuana measure was introduced to Mississippi legislatures by Democratic Senator Deborah Dawkins. The measure entitled Senate Bill #2369 was later referred to Judiciary committee on Jan. 21, 2013 but would suffer an abrupt death within the state's committee. Senate Bill #2369 was an act to authorize the medical use of marihuana by seriously ill patients under a physician's supervision. Its purpose was to provide an exemption from criminal and civil penalties for the medical use of marijuana and to provide limitations on the medical use of marihuana. Senate Bill #2369 would have made the following medical conditions qualifying under state-imposed guidelines: Cancer, glaucoma, positive status for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) or the treatment of these conditions. Conditions would also include a chronic or debilitating disease or medical condition or its treatment that produces one or more of the following: cachexia or wasting syndrome; severe pain; severe nausea; seizures, including those characteristic of epilepsy; or severe and persistent muscle spasms including those characteristic of multiple sclerosis or Crohn's disease."
