Pennsylvania Unveils Process for Adding Medical Marijuana Conditions

Pennsylvanians who want to use medical marijuana for a serious condition not defined under the law that legalized medicinal cannabis can now petition the state for inclusion.

The state’s Medical Marijuana Advisory Board has approved a process for updating the list of qualifying conditions.

Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine said the process will allow people with serious medical conditions to apply to have their condition be part of the list of qualifying conditions, with the support of medical professionals and documentation that supports their application.

“This process further enhances our efforts to provide a medically and clinically-based program that assists Pennsylvanians in need,” Levine said in a statement.

The application, found under the advisory board’s section of Pennsylvania medical marijuana website, is for members of the public and physicians.
