Sen. Dennis Rodriguez is asking for participation from anyone who wants to make sure the rules of Guam's new medical cannabis industry are done right. He wants residents to look at the draft rules, and start sending him their comments and suggestions for changes at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Anyone can access a draft of the medical cannabis rules and regulations that the Department of Public Health and Social Services put together. Simply click on THIS LINK, or 

  1. go to
  2. click on "Bills," 
  3. choose "34th Guam Legislature," 
  4. then find and click on Bill No. 210-34. That bill contains the draft.


This is the draft that will receive two public hearings and a markup meeting through the first half of December before the full Legislature either passes or passes up a final set of rules.


"The rules that Public Health proposed can very well change if citizens come to the table and propose reasonable changes," Sen. Rodriguez said. "My committee wants to hear as many relevant viewpoints as possible. We want there to be a healthy debate about these rules. Every rule has to make sense. At the end of the day, these rules need to govern an industry in a way that provides the best care for patients. This is about the patients."


The senator is asking residents to read the rules and send him their suggestions and changes prior to the first public hearing, which is next week Tuesday, December 5.


"This is your chance to change whatever you don't like about these rules BEFORE they go into effect," the senator wrote on his Facebook page, 'People First - Sen. Dennis Rodriguez, Jr.' "Please email me at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
