WA governor allows more to OK medical marijuana

The Associated Press

OLYMPIA, Wash. – More medical professionals will be allowed to authorize the use of medical marijuana for qualified patients under a measure signed into law by Gov. Chris Gregoire.

Gregoire signed the bill Thursday and it takes effect June 10.

It adds physician assistants, naturopaths, advanced registered nurse practitioners and others to the list of those who can officially recommend marijuana for patients under the state’s medical marijuana law.

Under previous law, only physicians were allowed to write the recommendation.

The medical marijuana measure is Senate Bill 5798.
