So you finally made the decision. To be legal that is. Buy some insurance against a potential arrest for the medicine that you use. Cannabis that is.
What do you do next and where do you turn. Your primary doctor would be the first woman (or man) to ask, and if they are unable because of a hospital policy then turn to the internet or ask friends. There are brave and compassionate doctors in medical cannabis states.
Many conditions qualify for a card. And most of the time Chronic Pain is listed as the chief diagnosis for medical cannabis. Just because you have Irritable Bowel Syndrom (IBS) your pain from the disease will allow your evaluation or certification even though IBS is not listed as a specific qualifying condition.
Find doctors in your area to certify your medical use of marijuana.
