The bill now goes to Governor Terry McAuliffe’s desk for his signature.
“Law makers have become more open minded and enlightened that it reduces seizures and can make day to day life easier for those who suffer. It is truly a landmark victory in advancing policy reform,” said Jes Bossems, director of the Jefferson Area National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws.
Before the bill could go into effect, the Board of Medicine will work to develop specific regulations. Those recommendations will then go back through the General Assembly.
