Although Virginia pioneered medical marijuana allowances as early as 1979, the law included the word “prescription.” Due to federal laws, doctors were unwilling to write a prescription and progress stalled. Over the years, lawmakers in Virginia have continued to adjust, expand and create new rules for growing, extracting, dispensing and selling marijuana. In July of 2021, the Old Dominion became the first Southern state to legalize recreational cannabis use.
