The state Department of Health has proposed amending its regulations to allow hospitals to develop procedures under which patients could take medical marijuana and other medications brought from home.

While not specifically outlawed now by department regulations, the amendment would give explicit permission for hospitals to formulate their own rules about patient use of medical marijuana, Jill Montag, a Health Department spokeswoman, said in an email.

Carmela Raiti was drawn to the Palisades Center last night to learn more about the temptations of alcohol and other drugs facing the children she knows.

She was skeptical that drug use was as low as the third survey by the Parents Resource Institute for Drug Education indicated it was for Rockland pre-teens and teens.

"I think there's easier access to drugs than we as parents want to believe," said Raiti, a Chestnut Ridge mother of a 15-year-old son and an 11-year-old daughter. "There's a lot of peer pressure and opportunities out there."
