The State Medical Board of Ohio delayed a vote on including anxiety and autism spectrum disorder to the state’s list of qualifying conditions for medical marijuana, which could have added new opportunities for MMJ businesses in the state.
Board President Dr. Michael Schottenstein said Wednesday the vote would be delayed to give two new board members time to consider expert reports.
A physician panel last month recommended that anxiety and autism be added to the list of 21 conditions for which registered physicians can make a patient recommendation for medical marijuana.
The board voted against adding opioid use disorder, depression and insomnia as qualifying conditions, which the physician panel did not recommend after hearing from experts.
