I have psoriatic arthritis - fairly severe, chronic joint pain and stiffness. Two questions 1) would this condition qualify for medical marijuana in California, or any other state and 2) If I went to one of those states could I get a perscription? (I live in New York). Any thoughts or ideas would be welcomed.

I would think so but honestly couldn't tell you 100%.

You cannot just go on vacation there, get your card, return to new york and think your all set. You need to be a resident to get your card.

In California, residency is a requirement, as is a photo ID. It is not a prescription, it is a recommendation. Recommendations are not transferable even between most MMJ states (remember to get that written into your state's future MMJ law!) and certainly not to non-MMJ states.

In California, you will qualify, almost every one does. If you do move here (1) bring a copy of your recent medical records- these make the process go much faster and easier! (2) the day you get a place to live, go to the DMV and get a driver's license or California ID. (3) Check NORML for a list of friendly cannabis specialists. (4) Get the doctor to write your personal limits (number of plants and ounces) on your recommendation! The law is changing but the doctor's recommendation on amounts still tops any other state or county limits :D, but not federal. :(

And speaking of federal, have you told President Obama- How you feel about the DEA raid today? Why you think cannabis should be, at least, medically legal in ALL states? How cannabis prohibition hasn't worked, isn't working, and never will work and is a big waste of my tax dollars!

Did you know that cannabis has been the number ONE question asked of Obama? We have to keep it that way! Don't let up! A CNBC poll yesterday came up with 97% in favor of decriminalization! We are on a roll- just gotta keep telling it to Obama! Make it so he can't ignore us. Here's where to gripe!
