According to, a petition to make “Bengals/Browns Fans” an official medical marijuana condition was submitted last month to the State Medical Board of Ohio.

“Yes, someone actually submitted a petition to add being a @Bengals or @Browns fan as a qualifying condition for medical marijuana.”

The article says the board requires information from experts who specialize in studying the condition, relevant medical or scientific evidence and letters of support from doctors. The chances of the petition getting granted is very slim.

Being a fan of Ohio NFL Teams is just one of many petitions that have been submitted to the state board at the end of 2019.

Attorneys for the medical board will review the petitions and see if they meet minimum requirements to move forward by February. From there, a group of experts will make a decision as to what conditions listed qualify for medical marijuana by the end of the year. If a petition is rejected, it can be re-submitted, but new “scientific information” needs to be included to be reconsidered.
