In Colorado, it is estimated that only 2 percent of registered medical marijuana users suffer from cancer or AIDS. Medicinal marijuana is often prescribed for psychiatric conditions such as insomnia, anxiety and mood disorders — and often by prescribers who have no specialized training in psychiatric disorders. There is no research to support this practice, and it is not the current standard to recommend marijuana for psychiatric conditions. In fact, cannabis is known to exacerbate and accelerate some psychiatric symptoms. Still, HB15 specifically stipulates five psychiatric conditions that medical marijuana would be indicated for: anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and agitation in Alzheimer's disease. As psychiatrists, we are astounded.
