The Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry (LDAF) is designated at the state’s lead regulatory agency in the licensure and production of therapeutic marijuana. The Medical Marijuana Program is responsible for licensing and overseeing the production of medical marijuana to ensure safety of the final product.
Pursuant to Act 261 of the 2015 Legislature and Act 96 of the 2016 Legislature, the Board of Pharmacy completed the rulemaking process to develop a nontransferable specialty license for a pharmacy to dispense marijuana for therapeutic purposes. The Board’s Final Rule was published in the August 20, 2017 edition of the Louisiana Register with an immediate effective date.
The enabling legislation placed a limit on the number of marijuana pharmacy permits; no more than ten such permits may be active at the same time. To implement the legislative mandate for an equitable geographic distribution of the marijuana pharmacies across the state, the Board recognizes the nine regions of the state established by the Department of Health, allocating one marijuana pharmacy permit to each region. The nine regions and their associated parishes are identified here:
Acadian (Acadia, Evangeline, Iberia, Lafayette, St. Landry, St. Martin, and Vermilion)
Capitol (Ascension, East Baton Rouge, East Feliciana, Iberville, Pointe Coupee, West Baton Rouge, and West Feliciana)
Central (Avoyelles, Catahoula, Concordia, Grant, LaSalle, Rapides, Vernon, and Winn)
Metropolitan (Jefferson, Orleans, Plaquemines, and St. Bernard)
