Chronic pain is the most common reason people give when they enroll in state-approved medical marijuana programs.
About 85 percent of patients' reasons were supported by substantial or conclusive evidence in the National Academies report. According to the study, the vast majority of users were seeking treatment for an evidence-based medical condition, with chronic pain accounting for 62.2% of all patient-reported qualifying conditions.

In addition, Boehnke and his co-authors would like to see cannabis removed as a Schedule I substance by the Drug Enforcement Administration. Schedule I means a substance has no medical use and has a high potential for abuse; because of the classification it is hard to conduct clinical trials on marijuana. Ideally, the researchers would like to see a nationwide database of medical marijuana patients, where one could combine information from a patient registry with data from clinical trials. "We're in a time where the policy is far ahead of the science", said Boehnke.
