Emergency rules and new laws effective Aug. 2
  • Dentists, physician assistants, podiatrists, optometrists, and advanced nurse practitioners with prescriptive authority can recommend medical marijuana to treat disabling medical conditions only. These conditions include Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorders, and any condition for which a physician could prescribe an opioid. 
  • Physicians and advanced practice practitioners with prescriptive authority will be able to use the online system to recommend medical marijuana instead of an opioid.  
  • Recommending providers can decide the registration period for cards issued to treat disabling conditions.
