The New Mexico Department of Health announced Tuesday that Post Traumatic Stress Disorder will remain as a qualifier for medical marijuana use.

In November, the Medical Cannabis Advisory Board rejected a petition filed by Dr. William Ulwelling. Dr. Ulwelling argued that a lack of evidence exists to prove medical marijuana helps patients with PTSD. The Advisory Board recommended that the Department of Health reject the petition.

"There is insufficient medical and scientific evidence in the petition to move forward with the removal of PTSD as a qualifying condition," said Department of Health Secretary Retta Ward, MPH.
