Vermont Medical Marijuana Laws

Vermont — S. 76 was passed by the Vermont legislature in 2004. The law was expanded by S. 7 in 2007, S. 17 in 2011, and S. 247 in 2014. The law’s citation is Vt. Stat. Ann. tit. 18 § 4472 et seq.

Qualifying for the Program: Vermont is one of two states where the department issuing ID cards is the department of public safety. (The other state, Hawaii, will move its program to the health department by 2015.) To qualify for an ID card, a patient must have a statement from a Vermont, Massachusetts, New York, or New Hampshire-licensed physician, naturopath, advance practice nurse, or physician’s assistant who has treated the patient for at least six months that the patient has had a qualifying medical condition.
