    i am a daily smoker and i got caught with a couple grames so i have to stop for a bit incase of testing. i have smoked daily for a long time. when i was in high school i got migrains and some back pain from a baseball injury. i started smokeing more after high school. im 22 now and have taken about a week off for the first time in a long time. i got a migraine last night and my back pain is starting up again.

    I live in Vermont and have really good health care from my job. could i look into marijuana from my doc

    Edit* my back pain is caused from something called a shoulder burtution (sorry not good speller) but pretty much my shoulder blade sits lower then normal so it rubs my rib cage from sometimes causing minor but annoying pain

    SUMMARY: Senate Bill 76 became law without Gov. James Douglas' signature on May 26, 2004. The law takes effect on July 1, 2004. The law removes state-level criminal penalties on the use, possession and cultivation of marijuana by patients diagnosed with a "debilitating medical condition." Patients diagnosed with the following illnesses are afforded legal protection under this act: HIV or AIDS, cancer, and Multiple Sclerosis. Patients (or their primary caregiver) may legally possess no more than two ounces of usable marijuana, and may cultivate no more than three marijuana plants, of which no more than one may be mature. The law establishes a mandatory, confidential state-run registry that issues identification cards to qualifying patients.

    AMENDMENTS: Yes.

    Senate Bill 7, which took effect on JULY 1, 2007, expands the definition of "debilitating medical condition" to include: "(A) cancer, multiple sclerosis, positive status for human immunodeficiency virus, acquired immune deficiency syndrome, or the treatment of these conditions, if the disease or the treatment results in severe, persistent, and intractable symptoms; or (B) a disease, medical condition, or its treatment that is chronic, debilitating, and produces severe, persistent, and one or more of the following intractable symptoms: cachexia or wasting syndrome; severe pain; severe nausea; or seizures."

    The measure also raises the quantity of medical cannabis patients may legally possess under state law from one mature and/or two immature plants to two mature and/or seven immature plants. Senate Bill 7 also amends state law so that licensed physicians in neighboring states can legally recommend cannabis to Vermont patients.

    MEDICAL MARIJUANA STATUTES: Therapeutic Use of Cannabis, Vt. Stat. Ann. tit. 18 § 4471 (2003). Through Vt. Stat Ann. tit. 18 § 4474d (2003).

    *****They don't take medical insurance, You have to either have your doctor "recommend" you, or you have to have it on your medical records in order to take it to a MMJ doctor. So, if you haven't already talked to your doctor about it, do so, and see if you can get a prescription to show your MMJ doctor. I don't know how much they run in VT, but you need probably $100-200 for the doctor and money for the card.

    Good luck,


    Sammy
