MICHIGAN (WPBN/WGTU) -- Regulators have approved adding Cerebral Palsy to the list of debilitating medical conditions set forth in the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act of 2008.

The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) approved Cerebral Palsy after the Medical Marihuana Review Panel members unanimously recommended denial.

LARA also denied the condition of Chronic Aggressive Behavior after panel members unanimously recommended denial.

The recommendations were made to the department after receiving citizen comments in February related to the petitions to add these conditions to the list of debilitating medical conditions identified in the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act.
