RICHMOND, Va. (WVIR) - Starting July 1, it will be easier to get medical marijuana in the commonwealth.

Patients will no longer need a Virginia medical marijuana card at state-licensed medical marijuana dispensaries. The only thing they will need is a medical cannabis certificate from a licensed doctor.

The hope is to speed up the process that can take months or more. Patients will be able to go right from the doctor to the dispensary.
