New Hampshire has added chronic pain and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) to the list of qualifying conditions for the state’s medical marijuana program, a move that could significantly boost the state’s struggling MMJ industry.
New Hampshire’s governor recently signed House Bill 160 adding the two conditions, according to Foster’s Daily Democrat.
The report also noted that expanding qualifying conditions was among the dispensary owners’ recommendations to help increase sales.
The new regulations go into effect Aug. 27, according to the Lawrence Eagle Tribune.
Another bill that would have made opiate addiction a qualifying condition failed to pass the legislature.
