Although there is a broad range of illnesses that medical marijuana is useful in treating, there are only a few that will allow you to qualify for a “Red Card.” (This is what allows you to get a legal prescription for medical marijuana in Colorado.) This is the short list of approved illnesses:
Cancer, Glaucoma, HIV or AIDS, Cachexia (physical wasting with loss of weight and muscle mass), Severe pain, Severe nausea, Seizures (including those associated with epilepsy), Persistent muscle spasms (including those associated with multiple sclerosis)
