Did you see that?

The Michigan Senate Judiciary Committee will meet next week to take up a bill that would amend the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act of 2008, to prohibit medical marijuana use for the treatment of glaucoma.

Glaucoma was one of the illnesses the Act listed as a “debilitating” medical condition. The other are: cancer, HIV, hepatitis C, ALS, Crohn’s disease, Alzheimer’s, and nail patella.

Patients may register to use marijuana if they have written certification by a physician who states that in his or her professional opinion, the patient is likely to receive therapeutic or palliative benefit in treating a debilitating illness. But glaucoma won’t be one of them.

The committee will meet March 20, 2012, at 2:30 p.m. in Room 110 of the Farnum Building in Lansing.
