AN ACT relative to written certification under the use of cannabis for therapeutic purposes law

 

Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:

 

360:1  Use of Cannabis for Therapeutic Purposes; Written Certification.  Amend RSA 126-X:1, XVII to read as follows:

XVII.  "Written certification'' means documentation of a qualifying medical condition by a provider pursuant to rules adopted by the department pursuant to RSA 541-A for the purpose of issuing registry identification cards, after having completed a full assessment of the patient's medical history and current medical condition made in the course of a provider-patient relationship of at least 3 months in duration.  The 3-month requirement for the provider-patient relationship required in this paragraph shall not apply if the provider issuing the written certification certifies that the onset of the patient's qualifying medical condition occurred within the past 3 months[,] and the certifying provider is primarily responsible for the patient's care related to his or her qualifying medical condition, or if the patient is enrolled in hospice care or is medically eligible for hospice care with a prognosis of 6 months or less but has chosen to seek palliative or curative treatment, or both.  The date of issuance and the patient's qualifying medical condition, symptoms or side effects, the certifying provider's name, medical specialty, and signature shall be specified on the written certification.

360:2 Effective Date.  This act shall take effect 60 days after its passage.

 

Approved: July 02, 2018
