Patients who possess a physician's recommendation may legally possess and obtain medical cannabis provided by state licensed dispensaries. Patients under the age of 21 are not permitted to consume herbal forms of cannabis. Inhaling herbal cannabis is not permitted by adults in the presence of a pregnant woman or a child age 14 or under. Dispensaries may not provide cannabis-infused food or drink products with more than 10mg of THC.

The law took effect on November 9, 2016. However, because of emergency legislation (House Bill 1026) enacted by lawmakers, regulators have until July 1, 2017 to begin accepting applications for those seeking a state license to grow or dispense medical cannabis.
