Michigan Approves 11 New Debilitating Medical Conditions for Medical Marijuana Patients

Arthritis, autism, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Parkinson's, rheumatoid arthritis, and spinal cord injury are among the conditions added to the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act of 2008.

The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs' director, Shelly Edgerton, recently approved adding 11 new medical conditions to the list of debilitating medical conditions in the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act of 2008.

"With the changes in state law to include marijuana-infused products and the advancement of marijuana research, and upon the recommendation of the panel members, I've added these eleven conditions to the approved list," she said. "I'd like to thank the members of the review panel for their hard work in discussing these petitions and making their recommendations."

These are the conditions approved by Edgerton after a majority of the Medical Marihuana Review Panel members recommended approval:

  • Arthritis
  • Autism
  • Chronic pain
  • Colitis
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
  • Parkinson's
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Tourette's Syndrome
  • Ulcerative colitis

Edgerton rejected adding these conditions after a majority of the board recommended denial: anxiety, asthma, brain injury, depression, diabetes, gastric ulcer, non-severe and non-chronic pain, organ transplant, panic attacks, schizophrenia, and social anxiety disorder

The approval of the 11 conditions and the denials are both considered final department actions.

The existing list of debilitating medical conditions already approved for medical marijuana patients in the state of Michigan including PTSD, cancer, glaucoma, AIDS, and hepatitis C.
