Williamsburg Designates Medical Marijuana Zone

WILLIAMSBURG-The Williamsburg City Council recently voted to approve an amendment to designate a zone that will allow for medical cannabis dispensaries licensed by the commonwealth of Virginia. The move is in anticipation of upcoming retail sales of cannabis and cannabis products or extracts for medical purposes. Virginia passed a law that now enables such sales. The law took effect starting July 1.


Medical cannabis dispensaries will now be permitted in Williamsburg in the zone known as Economic Development District ED. This zone is located near Riverside Doctors’ Hospital of Williamsburg.


To purchase cannabis for medical purposes, a patient must have both an unexpired written certification issued from a board registered medical practitioner as well as a current active patient registration issued by the Board of Pharmacy.


On January 1, 2024, the sale of cannabis and related products for recreational use is expected to begin in Virginia.
