Case to Get Medical Marijuana for PTSD Heads to Court in Colorado

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, July, 8th 2016 by THCFinder

Denver, CO –  The law firm, Hoban & Feola’s Denver team filed a historic case in the Colorado Court of Appeals on behalf of Plaintiffs who wish to obtain medical cannabis recommendations for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. PTSD is not currently recognized as a qualifying condition for which medical cannabis can be prescribed in Colorado. The firm is set to bring national attention with this case, similar to the 2009 Centennial case which led to creation of the commercial cannabis market in Colorado and beyond. Similarly, the ruling in this current PTSD case could set a national precedent, affecting the entire industry.

Founded in 2008, Hoban & Feola is the fastest growing national law firm specializing in cannabis and hemp law and policy. Headquartered in Denver, the firm has expanded from 12 to 15 states with the recent onboard of Nevada, Massachusetts and Maine. Additionally, the firm offers expert legal counsel in Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Central America and Uruguay. Businesses, states and countries have relied upon the firm’s highly sought after expertise to navigate the industry during the unprecedented expansion of legal cannabis.

In states that have legalized marijuana for medicinal purposes, some of the latest research shows that Medicare claims for prescription medications are on the decline. A study published this week in Health Affairs finds that expenditures for Medicare Part D – the portion of the program that covers prescription costs – are down in medical marijuana states for drugs used to treat conditions ranging from anxiety to chronic pain because patients seem to be gravitating towards the herb as alternative to popping pills.
