Medical marijuana may be legal in Louisiana, but not for everyone who wants or needs it.
That’s a situation some activists are already pushing to fix.
They want to add post-traumatic stress disorder and chronic pain to the current list of medical ailments that will qualify patients for MMJ under the state’s restrictive program, KNOE 8 News reported.
The addition of PTSD – and especially chronic pain – could give the Louisiana MMJ program a major boost. In most states with functioning medical cannabis industries, pain patients make up by far the bulk of customers.
MMJ sales have not yet started in Louisiana, but one licensed pharmacy has announced it may begin sales in September.
