Current Laws pertaining to Pharmaceutical Processors

During the 2018 General Assembly Session, several bills were passed that amended the laws associated with pharmaceutical processors:

Such amendments included expanding the use of cannabidiol oil and THC-A oil to any diagnosed condition or disease determined by the practitioner to benefit from such use, authorizing any practitioner of medicine or osteopathy licensed by the Virginia Board of Medicine (and registered by the Virginia Board of Pharmacy) to issue written certifications, and further elaborating on allowances and requirements for pharmaceutical processors.
