Beginning January 1st, 2024, practitioners are no longer permitted to issue written certifications on the paper form.

The Virginia Cannabis Control Authority, newly created in 2024, has implemented a new process for issuing patient written certifications that requires practitioners to complete the certification in a new, electronic format. This will provide the patient with a digital copy of both the written certification and medical cannabis “card” which the patient may take to a licensed medical cannabis dispensary to obtain medical cannabis products.
