Michigan ADHD?

Discussion in 'Medical Marijuana Usage and Applications' started by GuerillaMan921, Jan 20, 2010.

  1. Well ever since I've been a child ive been on a few different medications, ritalin being my first, calmax (some powder you mix into a drink), adderal and a few more i cant name.
    Besides this though, I have sleeping problems and it always helps me sleep.

    I was wondering since california used marijuana to treat a number of cases adhd; if michigan is the same way.
    The adderal is terrible though, made me not be able to eat for so long ; and i felt exactly the same.
     
  2. Michigan does not currently allow for ADHD or any other "mental" disorders.

    From the Michigan Dept. of Community Health.

    [SIZE=-1] Question: What medical conditions are eligible?
    Answer: Patients must suffer from a debilitating medical condition, defined as:
    (a) cancer, glaucoma, or positive status for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), hepatitis C, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Crohn's disease, agitation of Alzheimer's disease, or nail patella.
    (b) a chronic or debilitating disease or medical condition or its treatment that produces one of more of the following:
    (i) cachexia or wasting syndrome;
    (ii) severe and chronic pain;
    (iii) severe nausea;
    (iv) seizures, including but not limited to those caused by epilepsy; or
    (v) severe or persistent muscle spasms, including but not limited to, those which are characteristic of multiple sclerosis; or
    (c) any other medical condition or treatment for a medical condition adopted by the department by rule. (NOTE: To date, the department has not added to the list by administrative rule.)

  3. Have you tried Vyvance or Concerta? Marijuana is a depressant, not a stimulant, so it will not help with ADHD.
     

  4. Wrong on both counts.

    From Granny Stormcrow's most excellent list-which does not help you with your Michigan question.:) If you have anorexia secondary to to your current treatment, I'm wondering if MMJ would qualify under the

    admittedly that is a stretch. But you would not be getting it directly for the mental disorder, but for the side effects of the treatment of the mental disorder, if that makes any sense..
