On December 3, 2018, Utah lawmakers passed House Bill 3001: Utah Medical Cannabis Act. This legislation replaces Ballot Proposition 2, which was approved by Utah voters in the November 2018 general election.

The Utah Medical Cannabis Act directs the Utah Department of Health (UDOH) to issue medical cannabis cards to patients, register medical providers who wish to recommend medical cannabis treatment for their patients, and license medical cannabis pharmacies. These activities must be implemented by  March 1, 2020.

However, the UDOH is working to implement the Utah Medical Cannabis Act as quickly as possible prior to the March 2020 deadline.
