Medical cannabis

U.S. Pain believes people with chronic pain should have access to all safe, effective treatments, including medical cannabis. (You can read our full position statement on medical cannabis by visiting our medical cannabis advocacy page.)

With the help of our Co-Directors of Medicinal Cannabis, Ellen and Stu Smith, we have compiled resources to educate you on this valuable treatment option and how to advocate for it in your state.

Do you know where your state stands? 

Presently, the following states offer medical cannabis programs. In many cases, however, medical cannabis is only permitted for certain types of conditions. (Common ones include cancer, glaucoma, PTSD, HIV/AIDS.) You can check the status of your state and which conditions qualify here.
