BATON ROUGE, La. (LSU Manship School News Service) – A bill that would expand the medical conditions for which doctors could prescribe medical marijuana was passed by a House committee Thursday in an 8-4 vote. The bill, proposed by Rep. Ted James, D-Baton Rouge, would also allow inhalation of medical marijuana. The vote followed testimony in the House Health and Welfare Committee from several Louisiana veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. In addition to PTSD, the bill, HB579, would add glaucoma, severe muscle spasms and intractable pain to the list of medical conditions eligible for the state’s medical marijuana program.
