New Jersey to Allow 43 New Conditions to Be Treated With Cannabis

The Medicinal Marijuana Review Panel of New Jersey has recently proposed that the state’s health department should add 43 conditions to the list of ailments that allow patients to receive medical marijuana cards.

According to Philly.com, many of the recommended ailments are variations of the same condition. Thus, there are several types of anxiety, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, and migraines. Among the new conditions proposed by the panel, there are autism, asthma, arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome, and opiate-use disorder.

Currently, the state’s medical cannabis program has a list of twelve qualifying conditions, including multiple sclerosis, terminal cancer, glaucoma, epilepsy, Crohn’s disease, and PTSD.

However, even if the health department of New Jersey supports the recommendations, they will not come into effect soon. The public must be allowed to comment on the proposal for 60 days from the date it was posted on the official state website. Then, the recommendations will be proposed at another hearing.

The last step is to get the final approval of the state’s health commissioner.
