Vermont Governor Signs Medical Cannabis Expansion Bill

Vermont Governor Phil Scott

Governor Phil Scott has signed legislation, Senate Bill 16, expanding the state’s thirteen-year-old medical marijuana program.

The measure permits physicians to recommend cannabis therapy to patients with Crohn’s disease, post-traumatic stress, and Parkinson’s disease, and expedites access for patients with cancer or a terminal illness.

The bill also expands the number of permissible dispensaries in the state and allows existing operators to open one additional location each.

There are over 3,800 residents currently enrolled in the state’s medical cannabis program.

The new changes in law take effect on July 1, 2017.
