Oregon Legislature Approves PTSD as Qualifying Condition for Medical Marijuana

Last week, the Oregon House of Representatives voted 36 to 23 in favor of Senate Bill 281, which adds Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) as a qualifying condition to the state’s medical marijuana program.

Speaking in favor of the bill, Rep. John Lively (D-Springfield) stated, “Each person who suffers has different levels of how they’re impacted and what it takes to recover. This is about providing a legal avenue for people suffering from PTSD.”

SB 281 was previously approved by the State Senate in April and now awaits Governor Kitzhaber’s signature.
