A number of changes have been made to the state's medical marijuana law after Gov. Doug Burgum signed several bills Tuesday.

Due to the emergency clauses included in the bills, all legislative changes went into effect immediately after Burgum signed them.

"These changes will increase qualifying patients' access to marijuana products, alleviate a concern identified by the medical community and improve the operations of the Division of Medical Marijuana," Jason Wahl, division director, said in a statement Wednesday.

These changes include:

Removal of the requirement for a health care provider to state that, in their professional opinion, the patient is likely to receive a therapeutic or palliative benefit from the use of medical marijuana.
In lieu of a written certification, a veteran receiving treatment from a U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs entity may submit their medical records.
Added physician assistant to the definition of a health care provider.
Twelve medical conditions were added to the list of debilitating conditions.

Twelve new conditions

Twelve new medical conditions were added to the list of debilitating conditions that qualify under the state's medical marijuana program.

Anorexia nervosa
Bulimia nervosa
Anxiety disorder
Tourette syndrome
Ehlers-Danlos syndrome
Interstitial cystitis
Rheumatoid arthritis
Autism spectrum disorder
A brain injury

Should only be matter of time until word gets out on which doctors or assistants are willing to write the recommendation!
