ADVOCACY.  The VCS Advocacy Committee has been very busy the last few months, with the legislative session in full swing. We're keeping an eye on at least eight bills in various states and compiling a state-by-state cannabis legislation and language map. To date, we have information on the following states:

CA 2018 - "prohibit the Veterinary Medical Board from disciplining, or denying, revoking, or suspending the license of, a licensed veterinarian solely for discussing the use of cannabis on an animal"

MI 2021 - "A veterinarian may consult with an owner on the use of marihuana or industrial hemp on an animal of the owner"

NV 2021 - "prohibits the Nevada State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners from taking disciplinary action against a licensed veterinarian or the facility in which the licensed veterinarian engages in the practice of veterinary medicine for recommending the use of or administering certain products containing hemp"

UT - 2022 - "a licensed veterinarian is not prohibited from discussing the effect of cannabis on an animal with the animal's owner”

States with language specific to DVMs but without legislation: FL, OR, WA, CO, MT
