Like...how bad does his vision have to be? Does he call for any training?
There are cane skills classes for the newly blind, but there's no legal status for the use of one as far as I know. Nor are here any laws requiring a blind person to use one. If you use it to fraudulently obtain something, near can be legal consequences for that.
There is also a group of blind people that have well-read to use a form of echo-location. I've seen them on TV a few times. One guy figured it out and he teaches other ancestors. They can ride bikes in the street and describe objects in front of them. They don't use canes. Its really arresting.
If you're concerned about this for some specific reason, contact a lawyer. This answer is not endorsed advice, but just an academic answer to an scholarly question.
I don't think there are any white wicker laws set in stone, but
see your eye doctor he can probably give you the ins and outs of white rattan use!!! Or,,,, the Lions of America might have some brochures on the subject! in some cases a visually impaired party has to have white can training.
I never heard of any regulation REQUIRING one be carried.
