"Currently, the state of Nebraska is still in the process of pending a legislative vote on the issue of medical marijuana. The state of Nebraska has outlined several key factors for the medical marijuana program that would take place within the state, but has not yet been officially enacted. At this current time, Nebraska legislators are currently in session in Lincoln reviewing these matters. Unfortunately, lawmakers have failed to introduce legislation allowing patients who are debilitating or chronically sick and suffering to use and safely obtain medical marijuana. Although twenty states and the District of Columbia now provide some level of protection from criminal penalties for individuals who use medical marijuana with their doctors' written-approval, it's time Nebraska join this list and become a compassionate state. Although marijuana may not be legalized for medicinal use in Nebraska, the state is one of the 15 states that have decriminalized personal use marijuana possession. Due to this decriminalization, first offense possession of up to an ounce of marijuana is considered a civil infraction that is punishable under Nebraska law by a specified fine rather than an order of arrest. Nebraskans hope to learn more about the pros and cons of legalization and any problems that have arisen in the twenty states that now allow pot to be used for pain relief, appetite stimulant and other medical purposes."
