Medical marijuana is legal in California when it is used for valid medical conditions.

– Anorexia
– Arthritis
– Cachexia

California’s Marijuana Medical Program (MMP) does allow for other qualifying conditions, such as “any other chronic or persistent medical condition that limits the ability of the patient to conduct one or more major life activities as defined in the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, or if not alleviated, may cause serious harm to the patient’s safety, physical, or mental health.”
