Patients Dealing With Pain In Minnesota Can Now Purchase Medical Marijuana


After it’s legalization in Minnesota, medical marijuana has been used to treat many medical conditions such as cancer and epilepsy. This week the state authorized patients suffering from chronic pain the ability to buy it as well.

Only medical marijuana in the form of pills, oils and vaporizers are allowed to be purchased in the state of Minnesota. In order to receive these medications, patients must obtain permission from their doctor after their condition qualifies.

Patients who are suffering from chronic pain have been waiting years for it to be accepted as a qualifying condition. Manufacturers of medical marijuana are hoping that this will open up thousands of new patients to the already growing market.

Medical marijuana in Minnesota was legalized in 2014, it specifically bans the sales and use of the plant form of marijuana. This new amendment includes and defines the pain as intractable, or a pain that is otherwise unable to be treated or cured. Supporters are hoping that giving pain patients access to medical marijuana will cut down or lessen the patients’ potential dependency to addictive painkillers.

This is a huge accomplishment for patients and supporters alike. Last month more than 500 patients suffering from intractable pain registered for Minnesota’s medical marijuana program. Now they will have access to the medication they need.
