Examples include cancer, chronic pain, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), HIV/AIDS, anxiety, insomnia, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, glaucoma, ALS, and Chron’s disease. Some states limit the number of conditions that qualify for a medical marijuana card; but Massachusetts doesn’t. Clinicians have the ability to take into account the unique needs and circumstances of each patient when determining who qualifies for medical cannabis. Some debilitating conditions are rare or not well known. This is why healthcare providers have the power to determine which conditions qualify. This gives a greater number of patients the opportunity to potentially benefit from medical marijuana if it iss determined to be an appropriate treatment option for them.
