— Being a Bengals or Browns fan isn’t enough of a pain to qualify as a condition that merits participation in Ohio’s medical marijuana control program, an Ohio State Medical Board committee decided Wednesday.
The committee said instead it will consider adding anxiety, autism spectrum disorder and cachexia as qualifying conditions, however.
Public comment on those conditions will be accepted until March 1 by emailing MedicalMarijuana@med.ohio.gov.
On Wednesday, the board’s Medical Marijuana Committee met and voted to reject petitions that did not meet requirements and confirmed petitions members believe should move forward for review and public comment.
The medical board received 27 petitions late last year. In all, 18 proposed conditions failed to meet statutory and rule requirements for consideration, the committee said.
Among the conditions rejected: being a fan of the Cincinnati Bengals or Cleveland Browns.
The committee will make recommendations to the full board for a vote to adopt or deny a proposal as a qualifying condition. A full board vote is expected this summer.
