Pennsylvanians moved a giant step closer to being able to get marijuana to help treat their medical conditions, as the state announced the launch of its patient and caregiver registry.

A 2016 state law gave people under a doctor’s care access to medical marijuana if a physician says they suffer from an illness on a list of 17 qualifying conditions.

Those conditions include AIDS, autism, cancer, chronic pain and Crohn’s disease.
The law permits marijuana as pills, oils, vapor or liquid but not in plant form, and patients may not grow their own.
