Republicans as well as Democrats are calling for the state of Kentucky to legalize medical marijuana this year.

House Bill 166, which was sponsored by a bipartisan group of state lawmakers would allow qualified people to use marijuana who have been diagnosed with debilitating medical conditions.

The people would need to get a recommendation from a health practitioner who meets certain requirements and would also have to obtain and i.d. card from the state.

Here are a list of some of the conditions that may be potentially treated in Kentucky with medical marijuana if the legislation wins approval.

AIDS (Acquired immune deficiency syndrome)
ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) (Lou Gehrig’s disease)
Chronic or debilitating disease
Cognitive disorders
Crohn’s disease
Hepatitis C
Irritable bowel syndrome
Movement disorder
Multiple sclerosis
Neurodevelopmental disorders
Peripheral neuropathy
PTSD (Post-traumatic stress disorder)
