Delaware Adds PTSD to Medical Marijuana Qualifying Conditions

Sep 18, 2017 , , , , ,


On Monday, Delaware Gov. John Carney signed the Bravery Bill into law, which allows PTSD patients to receive a medical marijuana recommendation from any properly licensed physician. Previously, patients suffering from PTSD could only get a medical marijuana recommendation from a licensed psychiatrist.

While this is a step in the right direction, there are many other patients in Delaware who do not have access to medical marijuana. Whether they have a condition that the state hasn’t approved or they simply cannot afford the cost of a recommendation, many would benefit from expanded access. The best way to expand access for suffering patients is by taxing and regulating marijuana for all adults.

As you may know, the Adult Use Cannabis Task Force had its first meeting this month. They are discussing how Delaware could make marijuana legal. The next meeting will cover consumer safety and local authority and control. Here are details:

When: 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. on Wednesday, October 4
Where: House Chamber, 411 Legislative Avenue, Dover, DE 19901

  1. THE PEOPLE WHO FOUGHT FOR OUR COUNTRY SHOULD HAVE ACCESS TO THE MADICAL MARIJUANA, AS I AM WITH MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS!!! 🇺🇸

  2. This is great, but why isn’t Glaucoma on the list in Delaware? My recollection is that it was the First disease identified for MJ treatment in the country and virtually every other state that has instituted medical marijuana laws have included Glaucoma.

    • For the same reason that I live in Texas with severe spinal issues and, before my deductible is met, have to spend more on pain medication monthly than my mortgage payment; we have shortsighted retards in office with no vision, no compassion and no care for the public they supposedly serve.
