Recent research shows that men don’t experience or express anxiety in the same way as women. 

One in five men—and one in three women—will have an anxiety disorder in their lifetime. But there’s a growing concern among psychologists and other medical professionals alike that those numbers don't reflect the reality for men.

An Ohio Medical Board committee has decided not to recommend adding anxiety and autism spectrum disorder to the state's list of qualifying conditions for purchasing medical marijuana.

The State Medical Board of Ohio has delayed  adding autism spectrum disorder and anxiety to the list of qualifying conditions for the medical marijuana program.

The board met June 12 in Columbus to consider adding several new medical conditions to the program.

The 12-member board rejected petitions to include depression, insomnia and opioid use disorder in Ohio’s medical cannabis program, said board spokesman Tessie Pollack. However, the board tabled the vote on anxiety and autism spectrum disorder, Pollack said.

The State Medical Board of Ohio may soon approve physicians to prescribe medical marijuana to treat anxiety and some symptoms of autism. Anxiety and autism were two of 110 petitions submitted to the board this year seeking approval for tretment with medical cannabis. A local physician was on the board and helped make the decisions. Be Well health reporter Marlene Harris-Taylor spoke with the doctor, Dr. Ted Parran, and joined Morning Edition host Amy Eddings to break down what this preliminary approval means for Ohioans.
