Medical Marijuana: Now legal in Virginia!
Medical marijuana in Virginia is no longer limited to an extremely small minority of seriously ill patients, but it is not what would commonly be referred to as a true medicinal cannabis program. Virginia now allows patients suffering from a condition, determined at the discretion of a doctor, to utilize Cannabidiol (CBD) or Tetrahydrocannabinolic Acid (THC-A) Oil. The State of Virginia has a legalized CBD & THC-A which allows patients to receive a written certification from a licensed practitioner & register with Virginia Board of Pharmacy which will allow the patient to purchase CBD and THC-A Oil, while providing an affirmative defense, for medicinal use as per Virginia state law.
A patient may be recommended CBD or THC-A Oil if a licensed Physician, Nurse Practitioner or Physicians Assistant believes a patient will benefit from it. People suffering from any condition, the practitioner believes may benefit from treatment, using CBD or THC-A Oil can now purchase and possess this medicine without fear of legal repercussions. The new laws provide an affirmative defense for a patient, parent or legal guardian to possess cannabidiol (CBD) oil or THC-A oil, as defined in §54.1-3408.3 of the Code of Virginia who has been issued a valid written certification from a licensed Physician, Nurse Practitioner or Physician’s Assistant who maintains a current registration with the Board of Pharmacy.
