MMJ and Financial Aid

Discussion in 'Medical Marijuana Usage and Applications' started by Ozzie_x, May 27, 2010.

  1. Hey I am about to get my MMJ card in WA state. I have the appointment lined up and everything!!!:hello:

    But I have a question about financial aid. Will the college I go to, or even anybody, know that I got my MMJ Card and would I still be able to get my financial aid...I.E. Grants....NOT LOANS.

    I already get $10,000 in Grants and I CANNOT have that taken from me.

    Any help would be great!
  2. There shouldn't be any way that they find out that you're an MMJ patient, your status is 100% protected by HIPAA laws.

    However, you may wish to contact an attorney in your area to verify.
  3. thanks man.
  4. thats the beauty of MEDICAL marijuana.

    like will said, there are plenty of laws already in place regarding the privacy of your health record
  5. Yeah I talked to a few idiots who told me that I would get my fin-aid revoked but I spoke with my doctor and he said i was good to go!!

    I'll be a patient in Mid June!!!
  6. As far as I know (and I've researched this a bit...I'm in the same boat) they can't unless you get busted for it by police. So don't do anything illegal (that has to do with marijuana) while you have your card and you should be alright. They can't legally ask you or legally find out, due to dr-patient confidentiality. :D
  7. I'm not familiar with Washington law, but I am almost certain that you should be good to go man. I know here in Oregon both my girlfriend and myself are patients and we both receive grants and financial aid.
