Does your doctor know that you smoke marijuana?

This just recently popped into my head because I went to visit the doctor and they asked me if I smoked (implying cigarettes) and I said no, because I don't...

...but have you ever mentioned to your doc that you do smoke weed or is it just a personal choice that you don't share with your health provider? If you did tell your doctor, what did they say?

I'm just very curious!

That's a good doctor!

As for myself, no. I didn't want to tell him before I was 18 because I didn't know if I had patient/doctor confidentiality as a minor.

Now its a matter of when my doctor's appointment comes up for me to tell him. Even if my parents pay for my doctor, and my health insurance, I still have my confidentiality, right? I'd love to hear my doctor's opinion on weed.

Nope. I kind of want to tell him, but I kind of don't. Because if I ever come in with a cough or something he's gonna be like "maybe you should stop smoking weed faggot".

Living in WA I would tell my doc, but my mom told her's 15 years ago and He told her insurance and they dropped her. This happened in KS. He had been our family Dr for 20 years at that point. Fuck that rightwing state.

Yup. I remember going to the doctor when i was 14 and they asked me if i smoked or did any drugs before and i told them i've smoked marijuana. She wrote it down then told me not to smoke because smoking is bad for me.

And if i go to the doctor again and they ask me if i smoke, im gonna tell them i dont smoke cigarettes but i occasionally smoke marijuana. Id rather not lie to the fucker thats gonna save my life (or try)

my doc asked if i smoked cigs, i said sometimes, she said i should stop. then she asked if i had done hallucinogens; i told her i had, she asked is that it? i say "...as for hallucinogens? yeah?" to which she responds, "what? you smoke marijuana?" I say, "yes," she says smoking is bad for me and we moved onto my weight problem.

went better than expected.

ive never even thought about telling my doctor. idk why he'd care or need to know, so i never bothered to mention it.

and i still probably wont because i barely go there anyway

Thanks for your responses.

I haven't told my doctor, either, and I doubt I will...

Of course my doctor knows.

the main reason i see him anymore, is because i can't smoke like i want to, and have severe anxiety without it. My doctor has been trying to replace my weed-reliance with pills for the last 10 years or so.
