Virginia creates three hashish oversight boards for the grownup use program

Virginia state officials must appoint three governing bodies before marijuana can be legal and consumed by citizens in July, including an industry body that will be responsible for licensing businesses to grow and sell adult cannabis from January 2024.

According to Richmond TV station WWBT, the three boards are:

  • The Cannabis Control Board oversees corporate licensing and enforcement. Governor Ralph Northam will appoint five members.
  • A public health advisory board that advises lawmakers on the public health implications of legalization. The board will have 21 members and include representatives from the Virginia Foundation for Healthy Youth, the Medical Society of Virginia, and the Virginia Pharmacists Association.
  • A cannabis supervisory board that oversees the entire rollout of legalization. The board of directors will consist of 10 state legislatures.
