As they say, where California goes the rest will eventually follow.
Sacramento Bee reports……Senate Bill 627, sponsored by Sen. Cathleen Galgiani, D-Stockton, prevents the state Veterinary Medical Board from taking special enforcement against vets who recommend cannabis products, such as CBD oil, for their animal patients.
Specifically, the bill states that a licensed veterinarian who recommends cannabis products “is entitled to the same protections as a physician and surgeon who makes a recommendation.”
The bill also allows for an animal’s “primary caregiver” to purchase medical marijuana products for their pet if they have a valid veterinarian recommendation. The vet must have an established relationship with the owner and animal, before that medical cannabis recommendation can be given.20190SB627_97
