The state panel of Michigan has recommended that ten new conditions be added to the list of acceptable conditions that may be approved for medical marijuana use.

The conditions include arhtritis, obsessive compulsive disorder, ulcerative colitis, IBS, and chronic pain.

Mental health disorders such as anxiety and depression however are not in recommendation.

The top director of Michigan’s state board, Dr. Eden Wells, remarked, “Many of us maybe at any given time of the day might feel anxious about a certain issue, a test is coming up or whatever, and that’s a very mild form and I found that to be a bit broad.”

She also said that there is no science to back that marijuana could be helpful to other conditions such as schizophrenia.

Dr. David Crocker another member of the panel said about non-severe and non-chronic pain, “I think in the interest of patient service, risk management and just general compassion, I think we ought to consider saying yes to this condition.”

“I think if used properly and judiciously it’s very, very effective,” he said.
