CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A committee helping implement New Hampshire’s medical marijuana law is meeting to review draft rules on how the law will work in the state.

The Therapeutic Use of Cannabis Advisory Council is made up of lawmakers, patients, medical professionals, law enforcement officials and civil liberties advocates.

The law, passed in June 2013, will allow seriously ill patients diagnosed with cancer, Crohn’s disease and other conditions to have up to 2 ounces of marijuana obtained from dispensaries.

The panel, which is meeting Friday afternoon in Concord, has a July 2014 deadline for adopting rules for patient identification cards and a January 2015 deadline for issuing certifications to treatment centers.
