Compassionate drug use is legal, but it is tightly restricted to people who meet certain conditions. The FDA first approved investigational drugs to be used in this way for critically ill patients in 1987. There are 2 ways a drug company commonly gives access to their unapproved drug to a person who is not in a clinical trial, through expanded access programs (EAP) or single patient access.
INFORMATION ABOUT SANTA ROSA COMPASSIONATE USE LAWS

Senate Bill 1449 and Marijuana Possession
SB 420, or the Medical Marijuana Protection Act, was signed into law by Governor Gray Davis and established an identification card system for medical marijuana patients. SB 420 drastically expanded the protections of the Compassionate Use Act. This includes protecting qualified patients who collectively and cooperatively cultivate marijuana for medical purposes from criminal sanctions for possession for sale, etc. Part of the legislative intent of SB 420 is to “facilitate the prompt identification of qualified patients and their designated primary caregivers in order to avoid unnecessary arrest and prosecution of these individuals and provide needed guidance to law enforcement officers.”
