The state Regulations Review Committee of the General Assembly approved Department of Consumer Protection Medical Marijuana Program regulations today that include the addition of five new conditions for adults, and two new conditions for patients under 18, according to a press release. Those conditions are:

For adults:

· Interstitial Cystitis

· MALS Syndrome (Median Arcuate Ligament Syndrome)

· Vulvodynia and Vulvar Burning

· Intractable Neuropathic Pain that Is Unresponsive to Standard Medical Treatments

· Tourette Syndrome

Patients under 18:

· Intractable Neuropathic Pain that Is Unresponsive to Standard Medical Treatments

· Tourette Syndrome for patients who have failed standard medical treatment

The last step in this process is for DCP to submit the regulations to the Secretary of the State’s Office, who will post the regulations online. At that point, the regulations will be final.

There are 37,080 patients benefitting from the medical marijuana program, 1186 certifying physicians, and a new total of 36 conditions approved for adults and 10 for patients under 18.
