“VT Passes Medical Marijuana Updates; From Opiates to MMJ, A Vermont Patient Interview”
All is not lost for cannabis reform in Vermont in 2017 as major medical marijuana reforms have officially been signed into law by Governor Phil Scott on Thursday, June 8 via the bill known as S.16.
The law will make it considerably easier to become a patient with a new specialist referral program, add more qualifying conditions – including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder – will increase the number of medical marijuana dispensary licenses, allow those license-holders to each open up an additional location and run those dispensaries as for-profit businesses with fewer restrictions.
Finally, we interview Kevin, a former Vermont resident who’s since left the state to work in the cannabis industry in another New England state. After a severe back injury and years of failed pharmaceutical treatments, Kevin was able to successfully replace opiate and narcotic painkillers with medical marijuana and marijuana infused products.
