Summary

Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser on Wednesday signed a bill into law that will ease access for medical cannabis patients in the nation’s capital. It also would have permitted adults aged 21 and older in D.C. to obtain medical cannabis without a doctor’s visit. Known as the Medical Marijuana Self-Certification Emergency Amendment Act of 2022, the measure will allow patients who are in the medical cannabis program to “self-certify” their qualifying condition for the treatment. The ordinance was passed late last month by the Washington, D.C. City Council. That means, effective immediately, those patients will no longer need to receive a recommendation from a doctor in order to receive a medical cannabis card.
