Notice of Emergency Rule ~ Marijuana Recommendations

Distributed on behalf of the LA Board of Pharmacy:

During their meeting earlier today, the Board approved a regulatory proposal to amend its rules for marijuana pharmacies, more specifically relating to the issuance, receipt, and processing of recommendations for therapeutic marijuana. Given the August 1, 2020 effective date of Act 286 of the 2020 Legislature, which removed the authority of the La. State Board of Medical Examiners to promulgate rules relative to therapeutic marijuana, the Board determined it necessary to issue the proposed rule changes as an Emergency Rule, also effective August 1, 2020, while it pursues the promulgation of the final rule. A copy of theEmergency Rule is provided herein; it is also posted on theRegulatory Projects page of the Board's website.
