Post-traumatic stress disorder may become a qualifying condition to get in Illinois' medical marijuana program.

An advisory board unanimously approved PTSD and other conditions.

Osteoarthritis was also approved.

The advisory board is made up of patients, nurses, doctors and a pharmacist. The board's recommendations will now go to the Illinois Department of Public Health.

The board has previously voted against adding diabetes and anxiety to the list of approved conditions.
