Connecticut’s Act Concerning the Palliative Use of Marijuana provides laws to allow medical marijuana to used for medical issues. The act dissolved state-level criminal penalties for utilizing, possessing and cultivating medical cannabis by patients who possess a medical marijuana card recommendation from a doctor stating that the patient could benefit from the use of marijuana. Patients and caregivers may purchase and possess medical cannabis from state licensed dispensaries; however, neither patients nor caregivers are allowed to grow their own medicine. Connecticut medical marijuana doctors must complete a medically reasonable history and physical exam, diagnose the patient with a debilitating medical condition, determine if other prescription drugs are useful for his condition as well, decide if the palliative use of marijuana would likely outweigh the health risks, and explain the risks and benefits of the palliative use of medical marijuana. Qualifying conditions include: Cancer, Glaucoma, Positive Status for Human Immunodeficiency Virus or Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Damage to the Nervous Tissue of the Spinal Cord with Objective Neurological Indication of Intractable Spasticity, Epilepsy, Cachexia, Wasting Syndrome, Crohn’s Disease, and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
