“Personal caregiver” shall mean a person who is at least twenty-one (21) years old who has agreed to assist with a qualifying patient’s medical use of marijuana. Personal caregivers are prohibited from consuming marijuana obtained for the personal, medical use of the qualifying patient. An employee of a hospice provider, nursing, or medical facility providing care to a qualifying patient may also serve as a personal caregiver.
The law provides for personal caregivers to assist patients in obtaining and using medical marijuana. Although not explicit in this version of the law, one will most likely not be allowed to be the caregiver for more than 5 people. The amount that any patient can possess is what is reasonable for their needs over a sixty day period. This is a limit on what they can cultivate as well. As far as caregivers, the caregiver can possess or cultivate this much multiplied by the number of patients they are a caregiver for.
