The Louisiana Department of Health (LDH) has regulatory authority over Louisiana’s medical (therapeutic) marijuana program. LDH personnel are responsible for conducting inspections of medical marijuana production facilities and reviewing finished product test results to verify compliance with the requirements of La. R.S. 40: 1046.
No pharmacy authorized to dispense marijuana for therapeutic use in accordance with the provisions of this Section shall dispense raw or crude marijuana to any person under twenty-one years of age without a recommendation from an authorized clinician specifically recommending marijuana in raw or crude form for that person.
If a marijuana pharmacy licensee declines to open a second satellite location, then the Louisiana Board of Pharmacy may issue, pursuant to provisions, an additional marijuana pharmacy license in that region to open one marijuana pharmacy location in lieu of the original licensee’s second satellite location in that region.
