Eleven new medical conditions are added to the list of debilitating medical conditions qualified for medical marijuana treatment, the Michigan government said on its website on Monday.

The Patients who are approved to take medical marijuana for treatment in patients diagnosed with inflammatory disease, autism, chronic pain, colitis, inflammatory bowel disease, obsessive-compulsive disorder, Parkinson's, rheumatoid arthritis, spinal cord injury, Tourette's Syndrome, and ulcerative colitis are now approved to take medical marijuana for treatment.

"With the changes in state law to include marijuana-infused products, and the advancement of marijuana research, and upon the recommendation of the panel members, I've added these eleven conditions to the approved list," said Shelly Edgerton, director of the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs.

The 11 medical conditions are spurned, including anxiousness, asthma attack, brain injury, depression, polygenic disorder, gastric ulcer, non-serve and non-chronic pain, organ transplant, panic attacks, schizophrenic disorder, and social anxiety disorder.

To use medical marijuana legitimately, patients should possess diagnosis of proper disease as well as registry identification cards.

Currently, 30 United States states and Washington D.C. allow medical marijuana with different approaches, while the federal government still doesn't recognize marijuana's medical potential.
