A push has been made by a psychiatric nurse in The United States to allow medical marijuana to be used in the treatment of depression.

A ruling had been previously made by Cabinet secretary Alfredo Vigil in January to disallow an earlier motion by The Medical Advisory board to make all depression patients eligible for the medical-cannabis program. It is with a view to turning this judgment that was against the advice of the top medical advisor’s in the land that she is bringing the legal action.

In that Medical Advisory vote 5 members of the board had voted for marijuana to be used in this manner, whilst 2 members had argued against its use.

Byran Krumm the nurse, who is advancing the new drive to get pot amongst the list of treatments at her disposal in improving her patient’s lot, said that major depression cannot be legally treated in this manner, whilst people with major depression as a result of post traumatic stress can be treated this way. It is the disparity therein that she is attempting to rectify.

The Cabinet Minister who blocked the medical council vote for the use of medical marijuana for all depressions has made statement on his reasoning behind the veto. He says that there is a lack of reasonable assurance based on studies into the effectiveness of the drug to this end. He said that treating major depression in this way may not be as successful in alleviating symptoms of depression as other treatments are.

The psychiatric nurse at the centre of the lawsuit is seeking a declaratory judgment and injunctive relief for the use of the substance, to date a time for the hearing has not been set.
