A legislative task force in Pennsylvania has determined that medical marijuana should be legal, for people in the Keystone State, who suffer from 14 different conditions.
The panel, consisting of members of the PA House, issued a report stating medical cannabis should be made available in 3 different forms — pills, oils, and vaporizers. The recommendation did not include any mention of smoking or edibles consumption.
The 14 diseases included in the recommendations are:
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Crohn’s Disease
- Damage to the Tissue of the Spinal Column
- Chronic Pain
Additionally, the task force gave recommendations for awarding licensees in manufacturing, processing, and dispensing of medical cannabis throughout the state.
The 14 member ‘task force’ was recently created after Senate Bill 3 reached a stalemate in a House committee. The bill received overwhelming support and was approved in the Senate.
