MEDICAL CANNABIS CARDHOLDERS
Medical cannabis treatment will be allowed for patients with certain qualifying medical conditions. The UDOH will begin accepting applications for medical cannabis patient cards by March 1, 2020.
POSSESSION OF MEDICAL CANNABIS PRIOR TO 2021
Prior to January 2021, under Utah law, patients meeting certain criteria outlined in the Medical Cannabis Act may legally possess medical cannabis without a medical cannabis card. Compliance with the Utah Medical Cannabis Act may not protect patients from liability for violations of federal law or the laws of other states. Questions regarding this provision of the law are best answered by an attorney who can provide legal counsel specific to an individual’s situation.
