Qualifying Conditions for Medical Marijuana

Then in 2019, the program expanded to over 100 medical conditions, including autism, multiple sclerosis and spasticity to name a few. Recently, during the 2021 legislative session, House Bill 1535 expanded the program further to include all cancer diagnoses and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
