Per statute governing the Vermont Marijuana Registry (18 V.S.A. § 4473) a Marijuana Review Board has been established with the following guidelines:
The Review Board is composed of a physician appointed by the Medical Practice Board, a naturopathic physician appointed by the Office of Professional Regulation, and an advanced practice registered nurse appointed by the Office of Professional Regulation. Patient applications denied by the Marijuana Registry may be appealed to the Review Board within seven days. The review is limited to information submitted by the patient and consultation with the patient's treating health care professional. All records relating to the appeal are confidential. An appeal is decided by majority vote of the members of the Review Board.
The Review Board additionally will meet periodically to review studies, data, and any other information relevant to the use of marijuana for symptom relief. The Review Board may make recommendations to the General Assembly for adjustments and changes to 18 V.S.A. Chapter 86.
Announcements, notices, minutes and agendas related to the meetings of the Marijuana Review Board will be posted below:
