Mississippi becomes 37th state to legalize medical marijuana

By New York Post

Mississippi became the 37th state to legalize the medical use of marijuana on Wednesday – enabling a new form of pain treatment for residents suffering a number of severe, debilitating health conditions.

Under the newly signed law, patients can obtain up to 3 ounces of cannabis per month, or 3.5 grams a day.

Patients must be diagnosed by a licensed healthcare professional with any of the roughly two dozen qualifying conditions in order to receive a prescription for medical marijuana.

The conditions include cancer, Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, muscular dystrophy, Alzheimer’s, autism, post-traumatic stress disorder and severe injury.
