ST. THOMAS — Senator Nelson is happy to announce that on Wednesday, August 5, the language for BR# 15-0063, The USVI Medical Cannabis Patient Care Act, was submitted to Legal Counsel, answering the 10,000 + voters (56.6% margin) who supported the Medical Cannabis Referendum, that was placed on the  November 2014 General Election ballot.

After meeting with legislators, government officials, medical doctors and companies who are actively involved in the Medical Cannabis industry (in both Washington State and Colorado, April 2015), Senator Nelson was equipped with practical knowledge pertaining to the factors that are necessary to be addressed, in order to benefit the patients and local entrepreneurs.
