Medical Marijuana Now Legal in the U.S. Virgin Islands

Another U.S. territory legalized medical cannabis on Saturday after the governor of the U.S. Virgin Islands signed a long-awaited bill into law.

“I have approved the Virgin Islands Medicinal Cannabis Care Act because it is a step in the right direction toward assisting Virgin Islanders suffering from autoimmune and other debilitating medical conditions,” said Gov. Albert Bryan Jr.

Patients that suffer from a list of medical conditions including Parkinson’s disease, HIV/AIDS, cancer and chronic pain will be able to receive a recommendation for medical marijuana from a licensed medical practitioner. Qualifying patients can possess up to 4 ounces of cannabis at a time. Possession for non-residents will be capped at 3 ounces.

Revenue from the new medical program will be used to fund drug rehabilitation, tourism projects, agriculture investments, work training and infrastructure.
