Here’s how to ask Pa. to add qualifying conditions for medical marijuana treatment

Think Pennsylvania’s medical marijuana program should allow treatment for more conditions?

A new process announced by Gov. Tom Wolf’s administration Friday enables both physicians and the public to apply to have depression, anxiety, insomnia or any other ailment added to the existing list of 21 qualifying conditions the state recognizes.

Simply asking won’t cut it. Those filling out the application should provide documentation and references to research showing that the benefits of treating a particular condition with medical marijuana outweigh potential health risks.
