Colorado House approves using medical marijuana to treat autism

by Amanda Push

In a bipartisan move, the Colorado House approved a bill that allows medical marijuana to be used to treat patients on the autism spectrum disorder.

The legislation that placed autism on the list of conditions that can be treated with medical marijuana was passed 63-0 Thursday. The bill will next be looked at by the Senate. Gov. Jared Polis has already announced he is willing to sign the bill.

A similar bill was vetoed last year by former Gov. John Hickenlooper.

According to studies done in Chile and Israel, medical marijuana is believed to help those on the autism spectrum disorder.

Other qualifying medical marijuana conditions include HIV, cancer, and seizures.
