Michigan Medical Cannabis Review Panel Votes to Add PTSD as Qualifying Condition

Michigan’s Medical Marihuana Act Review Panel has voted – 7 to 2 – to add post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)thisphoto as a qualifying condition for an individual to become a legal medical cannabis patient in the state. The panel will hold a public hearing within 60 days before casting a final vote on the matter.

Unfortunately the panel rejected adding insomnia, asthma and autism to the list of qualifying conditions (although a public hearing for insomnia will also take place within 60 days). Despite these votes, the addition of PTSD is still a step forward, and will surely help a countless number of patients who suffer from the ailment.

This vote is also in line with recent research which has found that cannabis may be an effective PTSD medicine.
