Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin signed into law legislation expanding the list of qualifying conditions eligible for treatment with medical marijuana, a move that will benefit local dispensaries by significantly increasing the program’s patient base.
The new law adds glaucoma and chronic pain to the list of approved conditions, while patients under hospice care also are eligible to use medical cannabis, the Associated Press reported.
Existing conditions include wasting syndrome, cancer, HIV/AIDS, multiple sclerosis, seizures, severe pain, and severe nausea, according to the bill.
The new law also mandates childproof packaging and increased labeling for marijuana-infused products sold at dispensaries.
