Tomorrow,  March 9th,  the  Utah Department of Health Center for Medical Cannabis will be offering an online training for all healthcare providers based on new legislation.

UNP invites you to attend our virtual education sessions regarding the Limited Medical Provider (LMP) recommendation process. In 2021 the Utah Legislature passed a law increasing the number of medical cannabis clinician recommendations. The Utah Medical Cannabis Act (26-61a) classified a Limited Medical Provider (LMP) as any Utah-licensed MD, DO, APRN, PA, or DPM with a controlled substance license, who may recommend without certification medical cannabis in up to 15 patients with qualifying conditions at one time. This removes barriers to practice and access for monitored medical cannabis, allowing all providers that opportunity to work with their patients without specific certification on the Utah.gov website. You must manage the patient on the website but can do so without restriction if less than 15 patients at any given time on medical cannabis.

The LMP recommendation process is now established and ready for providers. One-hour educational sessions on how to recommend as a LMP will be held Wednesday, March 9th at 12:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. Register today for this virtual session. Register for 12:00 p.m. session Register for 6:00 p.m. session More information about the Utah Medical Cannabis program can be found at medicalcannabis.utah.gov/providers. Please email medicalcannabis@utah.gov, or call 801-538-6504 with questions.
