11 New Conditions OKed For Medical Marijuana

According to an Associated Press source, yesterday an advisory board voted to recommend the addition of 11 new medical conditions to the state of Illinois’ medical marijuana program. Three additional conditions such as anxiety and essential thrombcythemia with a JAK 2 mutation were rejected for addition to the list due to a lack of evidence. Diabetes was turned down because there was significant concern that marijuana would actually stimulate the appetite of patients who need to carefully monitor their diets.

Jim Champion, a board member and military veteran stated: “We evaluated each symptom on the merits.” Leslie Mendoza Temple, a physician and chair of the advisory board, elaborated.

She said: “If a condition didn’t get approved it was because either we couldn’t find the medical rationale or the scientific evidence to justify it. Or the condition was too broad — such as anxiety. There are many different kinds of anxiety. Everyone can have anxiety because it’s an emotional state. We needed more specificity.”

The following conditions were recommended for addition by the Medical Cannabis Advisory Board: anorexia nervosa, chronic post-operative pain, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, migraines, Neuro-Behcet’s autoimmune disease, neuropathy, osteoarthritis, polycystic kidney disease, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and superior canal dehiscence syndrome.

Under the current state medical marijuana law, the above-mentioned recommendations now require approval from Illinois Department of Public Health Director Nirav Shah, who was appointed by Governor Bruce Rauner. Next, specific regulations would be composed for the legislative rules process.

Experts say it will probably be months before the new health conditions are added to the present medical marijuana program. In the state of Illinois patients have to get a signed certification from a physician as part of the application process to actually use medical marijuana. As this goes to press, several sources indicate that patients who currently qualify for cannabis use are still waiting for their medical marijuana due to delays in the state licensing process for both the growers and the dispensers of the drug.
