The Compassionate Use Board (CUB) is comprised of seven qualified medical providers who have been appointed by the Executive Director of the Utah Department of Health and confirmed by the Utah State Senate.
The CUB reviews and recommends for department approval a petition to the CUB submitted by:
- patients under age 21 applying for medical cannabis cards; and
- any patient who does not have a qualifying condition but who has an intractable condition that:
- substantially impairs the individual’s quality of life; and
- has not, in the qualified medical provider’s professional opinion, adequately responded to conventional treatments.
When the CUB reviews applications, the CUB does not meet in-person or over the phone with the patient or their qualified medical provider (QMP). They review relevant information submitted by the patient and QMP. All petitions must include a QMP Recommendation Letter that includes required information. Board meetings are not public meetings and no one other than Board members and authorized department staff will attend the meetings. Information shared and discussed at the meetings is kept private and not shared with parties outside of those who attend the meetings.
