stress disorder (PTSD) was added to Minnesota’s medical cannabis program. Patients suffering from this condition have enrolled in the program, and, as of August 1, had access to medical cannabis. Every year, the Minnesota Office of Medical Cannabis accepts petitions to add new conditions. This year’s petitions were included for nausea, Alzheimer’s, and autism. Before deciding whether to add any conditions, a review panel will hold a public hearing. While Minnesota has a comprehensive medical marijuana program, one of the most significant flaws in the program is that patients are not permitted to consume whole plant (flower) cannabis.
