If you have a medical condition that could possibly be treated with medical marijuana, the state of New Jersey wants to hear from you.

On July 5, 2016, the New Jersey Department of Health announced that it would start accepting petitions to approve additional conditions for the state’s list of qualifying conditions.

Speaking to, Ken Wolski, executive director of the Coalition for Medical Marijuana of New Jersey, said that his group plans on submitting petitions to get autism, PTSD, chronic pain and neuropathic pain added to the state’s list.

“We’re glad that the DOH has finally given us a date to submit these petitions, but we are disappointed that it has taken so long to get started,” Wolski said.

The petition form can be found online at the department’s website.
