Acceptable Uses of Medical Marijuana by State

Although most States that approve of medical marijuana use have left much of the final say on which medical conditions could benefit from medical marijuana use to their respective health departments, most have created a list of acceptable conditions that are approved for using medical marijuana. These uses are clearly part of the law and may not be deviated from by the prescribing Medical Marijuana Doctor.

Since the use of medical marijuana is fairly new for current U.S. State Lawmakers, we can expect that there are will be many changes to the existing laws and approved uses.
