The Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) has approved adding Cerebral Palsy to the list of debilitating medical conditions set forth in the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act of 2008.

Cerebral Palsy was approved by LARA after the Medical Marihuana Review Panel members unanimously recommended approval.

LARA also denied the condition of Chronic Aggressive Behavior after panel members unanimously recommended denial.

The Medical Marihuana Review Panel made their recommendations to the department after receiving citizen comments in February related to the petitions to add these conditions to the list of debilitating medical conditions identified in the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act (MCL 333.26423). The approval or denial of the petitions by the department are considered final department actions.
