In the final weeks of its 2019 session, Virginia’s General Assembly passed three bills that would help people using cannabis-derived medications.
SB 1632, sponsored by Sen. Glen Sturtevant, R-Richmond, would prohibit schools from suspending or expelling a student for using CBD or THC-A oil with valid permission. SB 1557, introduced by Sen. Siobhan Dunnavant, R-Henrico, would allow physician assistants and licensed nurse practitioners to write a certification for cannabidiol oil and THC-A oil. SB 1719, filed by Sen. David Marsden, D-Fairfax, would allow patients receiving CBD or THC-A oil to designate a registered agent to pick up the medication on their behalf.
