Minnesota group urges cannabis for chronic pain – Minneapolis Star Tribune

Minnesota permits medical marijuana use for intractable pain, but advocates believe that leaves too many people suffering.

Now they have petitioned the state to add moderate to severe chronic pain as a qualifying condition for medical cannabis. The state health commissioner has until Dec. 1 to rule.

The commissioner also must decide whether to add macular degeneration to the list of 14 conditions that can be treated with cannabis oils or pills, but the pain decision is significant because it could explode the state’s number of cannabis users.
