New proposed legislation for CA veterinarians regarding cannabis…SB 627

A Prop 215 for animals?

Below is the proposed Senate Bill 627, introduced by Senator Galgiani in February, 2019.  This legislation would significantly alter the regulations imposed on CA veterinarians by AB 2215.  Instead, it would pave the way for veterinarians to incorporate cannabis into their practice, as well as allowing them to write recommendations for their patients, while being afforded the same protections as physicians and surgeons for doing so.  This bill is currently in committee.
