State Board of Health Amends Rules Regarding Medical Marijuana Indigency Qualification and Doctors’ Good Standing

The Colorado State Board of Health has proposed amendments to the Medical Use of Marijuana rules. The amendments:

  • Modify the indigence standard to conform with HB 11-1043, to clarify how an indigent person can prove qualification; and
  • Clarify the definition of “in good standing” in accord with HB 11-1043, to better delineate the standard for when a doctor can prescribe medical marijuana to a patient.

A hearing on the amended rules will be held on Wednesday, November 16, 2011 at the Department of Public Health and Environment, Building A, Sabin-Cleere Conference Room, 4300 Cherry Creek Drive South, Denver, Colorado 80246, beginning at 10:00 am.
