Victory! Vermont medical marijuana improvement bill becomes law

Vermont Gov. Jim Douglas (R) let S.7, the bill to improve Vermont’s current medical marijuana statute, become law without his signature. It will take effect July 1. This will help many suffering Vermonters by adding conditions under which patients can qualify to use medical marijuana. Previously, Vermont’s law was the most restrictive of all the states with medical marijuana laws, because only patients suffering from cancer, HIV/AIDS, or multiple sclerosis could qualify. Under the new legislation, the state will add serious conditions that cause nausea, wasting, chronic pain, or seizures to the law.

The state House of Representatives approved the measure on May 23.
