May 3, 2015 – Governor of Puerto Rico Legalizes Medical Marijuana

“Puerto Rico’s governor on Sunday [May 3, 2015] signed an executive order to authorize the use of medical marijuana in the U.S. territory in an unexpected move following a lengthy public debate.

Gov. Alejandro Garcia Padilla said the island’s health secretary has three months to issue a report detailing how the executive order will be implemented, the impact it will have and what future steps could be taken. The order went into immediate effect.”
