Michigan: Regulators Expand Pool Of Eligible Medical Marijuana Patients

Lansing, MI: State regulators took action on Tuesday to expand the pool of patients eligible to receive medical cannabis.

Officials expanded the pool of qualifying conditions under the state’s medical access law to include those patients diagnosed with: arthritis, autism, chronic pain, colitis, inflammatory bowel disease, obsessive compulsive disorder, Parkinson’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, spinal cord injury, Tourette’s syndrome, and ulcerative colitis. The changes took immediate effect.

Regulators considered and rejected several other additional conditions, including asthma, diabetes, schizophrenia, and social anxiety disorder.
