Michigan to Add Cerebral Palsy to Medical Marijuana Conditions List

The state is adding people with cerebral palsy to the list of patients who can use medical marijuana.

Monday the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs unanimously approved that recommendation, but rejected adding chronic aggressive behavior.

Cerebral palsy now joins medical conditions like cancer, chronic pain, Parkinson’s disease and other conditions covered by medical marijuana in Michigan.

About 293,000 people are registered with the state to grow their own marijuana, or get it from a registered caregiver.
