The bill adds autism spectrum disorders to the list of disabling
medical conditions that authorize a person to use medical marijuana for

his or her condition. Under current law, a child under 18 years of age who
wants to be added to the medical marijuana registry for a disabling
medical condition must be diagnosed as having a disabling medical
condition by 2 physicians, one of whom must be a board-certified
pediatrician, a board-certified family physician, or a board-certified child
and adolescent psychiatrist who attests that he or she is part of the
patient's primary care provider team. The bill removes the additional
requirements on specific physicians to align with the constitutional
provisions for a debilitating medical condition.
The bill encourages the state board of health when awarding
marijuana study grants to prioritize grants to gather objective scientific
research regarding the efficacy and the safety of administering medical
marijuana for pediatric conditions, including but not limited to autism
spectrum disorder.
