Long-suffering Bengals and Browns fans know the pain of defeat – over and over again.
At least one person thinks they should be able to treat that misery with medical marijuana.
A petition to make “Bengals/Browns Fans” an official medical marijuana condition has been submitted to the State Medical Board of Ohio.
Don’t get your hopes up: It probably won’t go anywhere. The board requires information from experts who specialize in studying the condition, relevant medical or scientific evidence and letters of support from doctors.
Last year, more than 100 petitions for new conditions were submitted. Those were winnowed to five: anxiety, autism spectrum disorder, depression, insomnia and opioid use disorder.
All five were rejected by the board.
This time around, the board received 28 petitions. The latest batch includes conditions already approved in Ohio, such as chronic pain and PTSD.
