Excerpted from ASA's 2022 State of the States Report.

In 2023, ASA recommends legislators prioritize modernizing state law, and allow a full medical cannabis program to exist, including a production and sale system for patients to purchase medical cannabis. Sufficient retailers across the state, and legal protections in place for patients are also recommended.

Legislators should also organize functional reforms to help patients, including expanding the list of qualifying conditions, and removing arbitrary caps on THC content in cannabis-related medications. Legislators should introduce comprehensive medical cannabis legislation based on ASA’s State Medical Cannabis Program Model Legislation.
