The governor of Michigan has signed a bill that allows veterinarians to consult with pet owners about the therapeutic use of marijuana and hemp-derived products such as CBD. Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D) approved the legislation, which was introduced last year by Rep. Gregory Markkanen (R), on Tuesday. It very simply states that a “veterinarian may consult with an owner on the use of marihuana or industrial hemp on an animal of the owner.” Veterinarians regard themselves as fairly knowledgable about cannabis as a potential treatment for pets, according to a 2018 survey. However, most veterinarians reported in the study that they’re familiar with marijuana and hemp therapeutics, just under half said they felt comfortable discussing the issue with clients.
