Marijuana news from contributing authors and staff writers on the latest in marijuana and medical marijuana
Over the weekend, the November 2015 issue of the Delaware Register of Regulations was published, expanding the legal protections of the state’s medical marijuana act to reach more individuals. The published regulations officially added “autism with self-injurious or aggressive behavior” to the list of conditions, giving doctors one more treatment option should they think it would benefit their patients.
The condition was added after a petition to do so was submitted to the Department of Health and Social Services. The department took testimony and conducted its own research on the matter, and it ultimately concluded that the petition had merit and the condition should be added. This is the first condition to be added by the petition process in Delaware.
Thank you to everyone who spoke in support of the petition, as well as those who attended the Medical Marijuana Act Oversight Committee meeting last week to share your experience with the program to date.
