posted in: | 0


Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 07, 2015

Good Intentions patients accounted for 11 conditions that will be considered including: Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Anorexia Nervosa, Anxiety Chronic Post-Operative Pain, Essential Thrombocythemia with JAK 2 mutation, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Migraine, Neuro-Behcet’s Auto Immune Disease, Neuropathy, Osteoarthritis and Superior Canal Dehiscence Syndrome. The Medical Cannabis Advisory Board only accepted 22 total petitions for review; Good Intentions was responsible for submitting 12 of those petitions.

Good Intentions CEO Tammy Jacobi credited her “remarkable staff and dedicated patients” as the reason why the company was able to submit thorough yet succinct petitions. “Good Intentions has helped thousands of patients and we’re experts in all aspects of the medical marijuana field. The State of Illinois accepted every petition we submitted because we’re knowledgable and hard-working”.

Good Intentions patients named in their petitions will each be submitting a written letter of intent to the Illinois Division of Medical Cannabis, informing the board of their desire to share their personal stories. Representatives from Good Intentions will accompany their patients as they appeal to the advisory board to add their conditions at the public hearing, which is scheduled for May 4 at the James R. Thompson Center in Chicago.
