UTAH IS NOW ISSUING REGISTRATION CARDS, FOR THAT NEW, LIMITED MEDICAL MARIJUANA PROGRAM... TARGETING ADULTS AND CHILDREN WITH SEVERE EPILEPSY.

THE NEW STATE LAW DOES NOT ALLOW MEDICAL MARIJUANA PRODUCTION, OR DISTRIBUTION... BUT PERMITS THOSE -- MEETING CERTAIN REQUIREMENTS -- TO POSSESS A MARIJUANA EXTRACT OIL... THAT HELPS WITH SEVERE SEIZURES.

THE EXTRACT'S COLORADO-BASED PRODUCER HAS A LONG WAITING LIST... SO MANY FAMILIES ARE EXPECTED TO APPLY FOR THEIR UTAH REGISTRATION CARDS LATER THIS YEAR WHEN THERE WILL BE A MORE READY SUPPLY OF OIL.
