CA: Proposed bill prevents California Veterinary Medical Board from taking special enforcement against vets who recommend cannabis products,

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.
