Arkansas Bill Expands Qualifying Conditions for Medical Marijuana to Include Anxiety

The Arkansas House introduced HB1150 which expands the conditions that qualify persons for medical marijuana under the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Amendment. Arkansas voters approved a constitutional amendment to adopt a medical marijuana program in 2016. The list of qualifying conditions has not changed since the program started. HB1550 includes a number of new conditions that would qualify a person for medical marijuana including anxiety, which may significantly increase the Arkansas medical marijuana marketplace.
