NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - A bill steps from final passage would expand eligibility for Louisiana's Medical Marijuana program.

Wednesday Senators voted in favor of a proposal to include Glaucoma, PTSD and severe muscle spasms on the list of those eligible for medicinal pot.

People with Autism Spectrum Disorder can also get access to the drug.

Beginning in the Summer Louisiana will fill prescriptions for medical marijuana.

There are nine pharmacies licensed to dispense the drugs.
