State and Territory Qualifying Condition Chart
Americans for Safe Access has developed this chart to help compare and evaluate the various qualifying medical conditions which would allow a patient in a state or territory to receive a recommendation for medical cannabis. Some conditions will appear repetitive. This is because we have stuck as closely to the legal language as closely as possible. That language can vary by jurisdiction and statutes often vary by small technical differences. The chart is current as of June, 2021. Click on the image of the chart below to view the whole condition chart. Functionality may be diminished in the Safari Browser. You are also free to download the Excel file for your own analysis. All we ask if that you please reference Americans for Safe Access as the resource if you use it.
