Utah Gov. Signs Medical Cannabis Amendments Into Law

The amendments were originally approved last week in legislature

Gov. Gary Herbert has added his signature to Utah’s revised medical cannabis law, delivering the final blow to a proposed distribution system that would call on public employees to hand out the substance.
