New Guidance Available for Use of Medical Cannabis in Ambulatory Setting

In response to a request by the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), and member inquiries, ICSI convened a work group to develop guidance for practitioners in the ambulatory care setting to understand their role in certifying Minnesota patients who may be eligible to receive medical cannabis. As set forth in the legislation, medical cannabis is available to certified patients as of July 1, 2015. The guidance document prepared by the work group was sent to ICSI members for review, reviewed by MDH, and will be available soon on the MDH/Office of Medical Cannabis (OMC) website. Learn more.
