LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- A public hearing is planned later this month to add Parkinson's disease to the list of illnesses that would qualify for medical marijuana use in Michigan.
It would be the first addition since medical marijuana was approved by voters in 2008. A panel met in December to consider adding Parkinson's and post-traumatic stress disorder. Only Parkinson's made the cut. It is a brain disorder that causes tremors and problems with coordination.
A public hearing is planned for Jan. 25 at 1 p.m. at the Michigan Library and Historical Center in Lansing. Written comments can also be sent through March 11.
The decision to add an illness rests with the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs.
