WILMINGTON, Del. — Delaware has a new law that allows people with post-traumatic stress disorder to more easily gain access to medical marijuana.

WDEL in Wilmington reported Thursday that Gov. John Carney signed into law the Bravery Bill. It allows PTSD patients to receive a medical marijuana card from any properly licensed physician. Previously, PTSD patients could only get approval for medical marijuana from a licensed psychiatrist.

State Senate Majority Leader Margaret Rose Henry sponsored the legislation. And it received strong support from veterans groups.
