Last Friday the Virginia House of Delegates voted unanimously for medical marijuana in the state via bill HB 1251.
On Monday the Virginia Senate voted 40-0 to pass the Joint Commission on Health Care bill SB 726, this will allow Virginia doctors to recommend the use of cannabidiol oil or THC-A oil for the treatment of any diagnosed condition or disease the state decides it can be prescribed for.
Some of the people that have rallied passionately for this reform are suffering from a variety of diseases like cancer, Crohn’s disease, and PTSD.
Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, who is also a doctor, is already on the record in support of letting doctors decide medical marijuana laws in the Commonwealth.
Passage of this historic legislation would make Virginia the first state with a hyper-restrictive program to adopt such a broad expansion in the United States.
