I talked with Fred Wood, the Chair of the Health and Welfare Committee at the Capitol in early autumn.  I was interested in the possibility of mandatory vaccination in Idaho and the possibility of medical marijuana.

What do you suppose he told me?

California has instituted mandatory vaccinations as a condition of public education for children. Fred told me the state has no plans to institute anything like this policy.

Idaho cannot allow medical marijuana because our laws tie the use of marijuana into the federal rulings.  Until there is a change in national policy, Idaho state law prohibits marijuana for any use, including medicinal.
