Virginia's new medical marijuana law takes effect
Law expands use of cannabidiol oil and THC-A oil
RICHMOND, Va. – Gov. Ralph Northam has signed a bill providing protection for those using medical marijuana into law.
HB1251 relates to the use of cannabidiol (CBD) oil or THC-A oil for medicinal purposes.
The two oils can now be recommended to treat or alleviate symptoms of any diagnosed condition or disease determined by a practitioner that would benefit a patient.
Previously, they could only be recommended for those with intractable epilepsy.
Virginia NORML, a group working to reform marijuana laws, gave these steps to individuals who use the oils.
