WASHINGTON

Eleven new medical conditions have been added to the list of medical conditions qualified for medical marijuana treatment, the Michigan government said on its website on Monday.

Patients diagnosed with arthritis, autism, chronic pain, colitis, inflammatory bowel disease, obsessive-compulsive disorder, Parkinson's, rheumatoid arthritis, spinal cord injury, Tourette's Syndrome, and ulcerative colitis are now approved to take medical marijuana for treatment.

"With the changes in state law to include marijuana-infused products, and the advancement of marijuana research, and upon the recommendation of the panel members, I've added these eleven conditions to the approved list." said Shelly Edgerton, director of the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs.

Meanwhile, 11 medical conditions are rejected, including anxiety, asthma, brain injury, depression, diabetes, gastric ulcer, non-serve and non-chronic pain, organ transplant, panic attacks, schizophrenia, and social anxiety disorder.

To use medical marijuana legitimately, patients should possess diagnosis of proper disease as well as registry identification cards. Currently, 30 U.S. states and Washington D.C. allow medical marijuana with different approaches, while the federal government still doesn't recognize marijuana's medical potential.
