New bill looks to give medical marijuana users equal transplant rights
"If you trust your physician and the program that you're going to you should trust the policies that they have, I don't think you really need a bill," Osorio said.
Richard Hawthorne made it on the UCSF transplant list. He still can't smoke marijuana and is looking forward to AB 258 passing and becoming law.
He's been off and on the liver transplant list now six years and worries his luck is running short. But on April 30th, AB 258 passed the Assembly and will be headed to the Senate. Supporters are confident it will be passed and signed into law this summer.
