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.

AIDS, Alzheimer's, cancer, Crohn's Disease, fibromyalgia, epilepsy or other seizure disorders, sickle cell anemia, spinal cord disease or injury and traumatic brain injuries are just some of the conditions that qualify for medical marijuana. Chronic traumatic encephalopathy, inflammatory bowel disease, multiple sclerosis, Tourette's syndrome and glaucoma are some more.

While the exhaustive list may be known at the doctor's office, it is important to keep in mind that not every doctor can provide the written recommendation necessary to obtain medical marijuana-the treating physician must get a certificate to recommend it from the State Medical Board of Ohio.

Now that using marijuana has become legal in the state for medical purposes, it is essential for all parties involved to ensure they are following the law. This goes for everyone, from the people prescribing it to the people dispensing it. Since the law is still unclear about the provision of medical marijuana and which areas its usage is prohibited in, it might be helpful to consult an experienced attorney for guidance on how to ensure one's business is operating lawfully.
