Although Marijuana is not yet approved by the FDA, more than two thirds of U.S. states and the District of Columbia have approved marijuana for medical treatment, and many more are proposing bills to do the same.

Qualifying conditions under the Utah Medical Cannabis Act are listed below:

  • HIV or acquired immune deficiency syndrome

  • Alzheimer's disease

  • amyotrophic lateral sclerosis

  • cancer

  • cachexia

  • persistent nausea that is not significantly responsive to traditional treatment, except for nausea related to:

    • pregnancy

    • cannabis-induced cyclical vomiting syndrome

    • cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome

  • Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis

  • epilepsy or debilitating seizures

  • multiple sclerosis or persistent and debilitating muscle spasms

  • post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) that is being treated and monitored by a licensed health therapist and that:

    • has been diagnosed by a healthcare provider by the Veterans Administration and documented in the patient's record; or

    • has been diagnosed or confirmed by evaluation from a psychiatrist, masters prepared psychologist, a masters prepared licensed clinical social worker, or a psychiatric APRN

  • autism

  • a terminal illness when the patient's life expectancy is less than six months

  • a condition resulting in the individual receiving hospice care

  • a rare condition or disease that affects less than 200,000 individuals in the U.S., as defined in federal law, and that is not adequately managed despite treatment attempts using conventional medications (other than opioids or opiates) or physical interventions

  • persistent pain lasting longer than two weeks that is not adequately managed, in the qualified medical provider's opinion, despite treatment attempts using conventional medications other than opioids or opiates or physical interventions

  • acute pain that is expected to last for 2 weeks or longer for an acute condition, including a surgical procedure, for which a medical professional may generally prescribe opioids for a limited duration

  • Note: Patients with medical conditions not listed in the law may petition the Compassionate Use Board for a medical cannabis card, which will review complete petitions and recommend eligibility on a case-by-case basis. LMPs are unable to submit to the Compassionate Use Board.
