More than 20 states — plus Washington, D.C., and two U.S. territories — have an allowance for medical marijuana to be used in treating PTSD.

On Veterans Day, November 11, 2017, New York’s Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed legislation to add PTSD to the state’s medical marijuana conditions.

Starting in August 2017, qualifying patients in Minnesota and New Hampshire can obtain medical cannabis. In June, Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper signed Senate Bill 17, to include PTSD in the state’s medical marijuana program. It’s the first condition to be added since the program launched in 2001.

In the past year, Arkansas, Florida, North Dakota, Ohio, Illinois, New Jersey, Rhode Island and New York have joined the list.
