WEST BOUNTIFUL, Utah — According to the Utah Center for Medical Cannabis, Utah’s card-holding medical cannabis patients have increased from 11,000 to over 37,000 between September 2020 and September 2021 (over 50,000 applications have been submitted).
Utah voters approved medical cannabis in 2018. The state legislature went on to implement a highly-regulated program run by the Utah Department of Health and the Department of Agriculture and Food.
