Someone wrote an article online, mentioned the first state had acupuncture legislation was California, actually this is a wrong information. The first state should be Nevada.  Maryland and Oregon were in the same year (1973) immediate after Nevada. Washington DC was in 1989. Virginia in 1993.

网上有人写文章,谈到美国第一个州通过针灸立法的是加利福尼亚,实际上有误。第一个通过针灸立法的应该是内华达,而马里兰和俄勒冈是同一年(1973年)通过立法的。华盛顿DC 是1989年,维吉尼亚则是1993年。

Below is a list from American Association of Acupuncture and Oriental medicine(AAAOM).
