The Board of Physicians did not recommend making anxiety disorders and Menieres Disease eligible for medical marijuana.

There will be another public hearing on the three additional conditions after the Department of Consumer Protection drafts regulations. Those regulations will then be reviewed by the Attorney General’s office and sent to the legislature’s Regulation Review Committee for approval.

There are currently 22 qualifying conditions for adults and 6 for patients under 18.
