The Arizona Department of Health Services has scheduled a public hearing to discuss a petition which would make Arizona the 6th state in the nation to add PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) as a qualifying condition for an individual to become a medical cannabis patient. Maine, Connecticut, New Mexico, Oregon and Delaware are the other five.

The petition was filed by the Greene Consulting Groupin conjunction with the Arizona Cannabis Nurses Association. The public hearing, which will hopefully lead to a vote on the issue, will be held Tuesday, October 29th in Phoenix. The meeting will take place at the Department of Health Services building (250 North 17th Avenue, Phoenix).

People can also submit written testimony through the Department of Health Services website, with October 29th being the deadline.

The filed petition – which includes scientific evidence on the benefits of cannabis for PTSD – can be found by clicking here.
