Effective July 20th, tourette syndrome and anxiety disorders will be added to the list of conditions needed to receive a medical marijuana card in Pennsylvania.

That will bring the number of approved conditions up to 23. Pennsylvania Department of Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine made the decision today based on the recommendation by the medical marijuana advisory board. Dr. Levine advises anxiety patients to continue to pursue counseling and therapy. Any marijuana they use should be low in THC and high in CBD. There are close to 111,000 active patients in the medical marijuana program.
