LANSING ( AP ) - A Michigan panel has given the preliminary go-ahead to add post-traumatic stress disorder to the list of illnesses qualifying for medical marijuana use in the state.

It would be the first addition since medical marijuana was approved by voters in 2008.

The Michigan Medical Marijuana Review Panel on Tuesday also rejected adding autism, asthma and insomnia to the list.

An earlier iteration of the panel added Parkinson's disease to the list.  But a state agency denied the petitions in May because the yes votes didn't constitute a quorum.

A public hearing on PTSD and insomnia must be scheduled within 60 days.  The head of the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs will have final say on whether to add PTSD to the list of debilitating conditions.
