Expand the list of Qualifying Medical Conditions Protected under the DC Medical Marijuana Law sign now

Thank you for your hard work, dedication, and continued support enacting the DC Medical Marijuana Law.

We ask that you expand the list of qualifying medical conditions protected under the DC Medical Marijuana Law.

Currently the DC Medical Marijuana Law only protects 5 medical conditions: HIV, AIDS, CANCER, GLAUCOMA, MS AND OTHER MUSCLE DISORDERS.

There are hundreds of medical conditions that have been proven to benefit from Medical Marijuana.

Legitimate medical conditions will not be protected under the current law.

The law should allow Doctors their legal right to recommend Medical Marijuana to patients for the treatment of legitimate medical condition.

Through rule-making, the list of qualifying conditions should be expanded to protect rare and other medical conditions that are documented to benefit from the therapeutic use of medical marijuana.

Medical Marijuana is currently used to treat and/or relieve the symptoms of hundreds of medical conditions, not limited to, but including:
