Ohio Considers Adding 7 New Conditions For Medical Marijuana Use
Ohio Board Considering 7 Potential Qualifying Conditions For Medical Marijuana Treatment
After receiving 30 applications to add additional qualifying conditions to the medical marijuana program, Ohio’s Medical Board has narrowed it down to seven that they are considering.
The seven medical conditions that will move forward are as follows:
Panic Disorder with Agoraphobia
Restless Leg Syndrome
Spasticity/Persistent Muscle spasms
Terminal Illness -- less than 6 months
Terminal Illness -- less than 6 months, eligible for hospice care
The board will be seeking further insight from experts on Huntington’s Disease, Restless Leg Syndrome, Terminal Illness and Spasticity about how each of these conditions would make a good candidate for medical marijuana treatment. Autism and Agoraphobia will continue through the review process but will not have an expert testimony as these conditions have already been presented to the state board in the past.
