The bill adds a condition for which a physician could prescribe an
opiate 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.
