Three new medical marijuana conditions approved

Connecticut’s Board of Physicians met on Wednesday, June 7th to discuss five petitions to add new conditions to the state’s Medical Marijuana Program.

The board took votes and made recommendations to the Commissioner.

The board’s recommendations are that the following conditions be added to the state’s program:

  • Hydrocephalus with Intractable Headache
  • Intractable Migraines
  • Trigeminal Neuralgia

After DCP drafts a regulation to add the conditions, there will be an additional public hearing and comment period. The regulation then will be reviewed by the Office of the Attorney General, and ultimately require the approval of the Regulation Review Committee of the General Assembly.

The board did not recommend the following conditions be added to the state’s system:

  • Anxiety Disorders
  • Menieres Disease
