MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Minnesotans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can now register to get medical marijuana and start receiving it next month.
The Minnesota Department of Health issued a reminder Wednesday that since the start of July PSTD patients could sign up for the medication. They can start receiving it from state-sanctioned facilities on Aug. 1.
To get into the state’s highly-restrictive medical pot program, patients need a health care practitioner to certify that they have a qualifying condition. Aside from the recently-added PTSD, those conditions include cancer, glaucoma, HIV/AIDS, and intractable pain.
