Conditions qualifying for medical marijuana

There are many hot topics being discussed these days. Much has been said about the availability of medical marijuana in Ohio and the 21 medical conditions that can be treated with the substance. However, many people suffering from debilitating pain or nausea due to an ailment may not be aware whether their condition qualifies for marijuana in the state. This is why it is important to know what the qualifying conditions are, both for patients looking for the substance and business operators looking to sell it.

Medical marijuana on public universities may violate federal law

The legality of certain substances change throughout time. Although medical marijuana became legal in Ohio back in 2016, the first time patients were able to get their medical prescriptions filled was early this year. Experts believe that one of the reasons a medical marijuana program has not gathered impetus in the state is because federal law still classifies cannabis as a Schedule I drug, which puts it in the same list as LSD and heroin. A schedule I drug is not considered for medical treatment in the country and has a high potential for abuse. Those who are interested in exploring the medical marijuana program are confused by this, as they are unclear if they would end up being prosecuted federally instead of locally.
