OHIO – Today the Ohio Medical Board decided to tabled the use of medical marijuana for use with anxiety, depression, insomnia, and opioid addiction.
Ohio’s 2016 law that created the medical marijuana program listed 21 conditions that qualify for access to the drug through a doctor’s recommendation. Thats about three out of ten people in Ohio who already qualify.
Under Ohio law these are the conditions already approved for Medical Marijuana use, AIDS, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, chronic traumatic encephalopathy, Crohn’s disease, epilepsy or another seizure disorder, fibromyalgia, glaucoma, hepatitis C, inflammatory bowel disease, multiple sclerosis, pain that is either chronic and severe or intractable, Parkinson’s disease, positive status for HIV, post-traumatic stress disorder, sickle cell anemia, spinal cord disease or injury, Tourette’s syndrome, traumatic brain injury, and ulcerative colitis.
