There have been a number of proposed changes to our current regulations.
Dispensaries will be expanding, and are now permitted to advertise, as well as become for-profit entities.
Many of the problematic restrictions, relating to patient access, have been amended favorably. S.16 proposes a number of potential waivers to the 3-month Doctor/patient relationship requirement, expands permitted conditions (adding Crohn's, PTSD, and Parkinson's), increases possession limits to 3oz's, and the new paperwork will more clearly explain the medical professional's relatively limited role in the process.
Patients who designate themselves as their own cultivators, rather than designating a dispensary, may now: 1) cultivate for themselves, and one other registered patient and 2) also designate a dispensary.
