Public Comment For Adding New Qualifying Conditions
The medical board responsible for overseeing the addition of new qualifying conditions to Ohio’s Medical Marijuana Control Program have accepted three petitions to add qualifying conditions and requested that a panel of medical experts review the available studies, and make a recommendation.
The panel of medical experts have been tasked with reviewing Anxiety, Autism, and Cachexia/Wasting Syndrome to determine if it is appropriate for these ailments to be added as qualifying conditions for treatment with medical cannabis.
If approved, the addition of these qualifying conditions would bring the total number of qualifying conditions up to 24.
The expert panel is expected to make their recommendation to the full board sometime around June of this year, with a vote from the full board coming sometime later in the summer.
The good news is that patients aren't being left out of this process! The board is currently accepting public written comment through the end of the month, so you can make sure you're voice is heard!
