Connecticut: Lawmakers Expand Patient Pool Eligible for Medical Cannabis

Hartford, CT: Regulators have expanded the pool of patients eligible for medical cannabis access to include those with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and persistent (lasting more than six-months) chronic pain.

Physicians in Connecticut have the option of recommending cannabis therapy for patients suffering from over 30 distinct conditions, including epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, and post-traumatic stress. Over 41,000 residents are registered with the state to obtain and consume medical cannabis products.
