Reasonable suspicion drug testing is a critical safety measure.

Cerebral Palsy Patients Now Approved for Medical Marijuana in Michigan

Effective immediately, cerebral palsy has been added to the current list of debilitating medical conditions already approved for medical marijuana in Michigan.

The Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs announced March 11 it has approved adding cerebral palsy to the list of debilitating medical conditions covered by the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act of 2008. Cerebral palsy was approved by LARA after the Medical Marihuana Review Panel members unanimously recommended approval; the agency denied the condition of Chronic Aggressive Behavior after panel members unanimously recommended denial.

The Medical Marihuana Review Panel made its recommendations to the department after receiving citizen comments in February on the petitions to add these two conditions to the list of debilitating medical conditions identified in the act. The approval or denial of the petitions by the department are considered final department actions.

Effective immediately, cerebral palsy is now added to the following current list of debilitating medical conditions already approved for medical marijuana in Michigan:
