Charlotte Amalie, Virgin Islands: Democratic Gov. Albert Bryan Jr. signed legislation into law last week establishing a regulated medical cannabis market in the US Virgin Islands.
The Medical Cannabis Patient Care Act permits qualified patients to possess and access cannabis and cannabis-infused products from licensed dispensaries. Specified patients will also be permitted to cultivate their own marijuana.
Under the law, regulators must finalize rules governing the program within 180 days.
