California Senate Passes Bill Allowing Vets to Recommend Medical Cannabis For Pets



Veterinarians in California could soon recommend medical cannabis for pets.

The California Senate voted 33-0 Thursday to let pet owners 18 and older purchase medical cannabis for their animals if they have a recommendation from a veterinarian who has completed a specific course.

The bill would give veterinarians the same protections as doctors who recommend cannabis for human patients. And it would prevent the Veterinary Medical Board from disciplining veterinarians who recommend medical cannabis.

Last year, former Gov. Jerry Brown signed a law a bill making California the first state in the U.S. to recognize cannabis in veterinary medicine, providing legal protection to veterinarians who talk with pet owners about its use.




The bill now goes to the state Assembly.

  1. I have been suffering from amyotrophic laterals sclerosis (ALS) disease for the last three years and had constant pain, especially in my knees.I was tripping and unable to get upstairs due to (ALS), My doctor put me on riluzole, letting me know there was no cure but the medication might provide me a few more months of delayed symptoms.The Rilutek (riluzole) did very little to help me. The medical team did even less. My decline was rapid and devastating. The psychological support from the medical centre was non-existent and if it were not for the sensitive care and attention of my primary physician, I would have died. There has been little if any progress in finding a cure. With the help of Organic Clinic natural herbs I have been able to reverse my symptoms using herbs, which i feel has made the most difference. The ALS natural formula immensely helped my condition, it reversed my ALS. my slurred speech. And then the inability to eat without getting choked, and the Pains. gradually disappeared.
