Question about doctors

Discussion in 'Medical Marijuana Usage and Applications' started by Rynn01, Jan 8, 2013.

  1. First off, I'm really hoping that the IL mmj bill passes today, but I'm wondering about if I could even get a rec. I have chronic migraines, arthritis in my back, and bursitis in my shoulder. The migraines and back will not respond to medicine, but all my doctors are in St. Louis. So can a Dr from a non mmj state write a rec for a patient in a mmj state?
    Thanks for any input.

  2. Wild will usually kills do I qualify questions as fast as he finds them. The board gets flooded with them if he doesn't and we cant help each other with how to information. They are REALLY UNWELCOME here.

    If the Il. law follows the other state laws the answers are maybe on the do I qualify and probably not on the out of state M.D. but if no one notices....
     
  3. I don't know how they will do it out there in IL but in ca you don't go to your normal DR to get a prescription for mj. You have to go to a mmj DR that looks at all your medical records to determine if mj is right for you. So it should not matter where you DR. Is located as long as you can prove your medical history. Like I said though every state is different.
     
  4. Where I am my primary care provider wrote the recommendation though any specialist can also write it and there are specialists who's specialty is MMJ.

    What state.
     
  6. I'm always in the State of Confusion. Beyond that I prefer not to comment, I don't do hook ups so it is easier to just not say. Saves hurt feelings when I wont get together with some one close by.

    It is not hard to find out, Pick a state and do a search.

    I was just looking for some general knowledge. If I wanted to find all that out I could have looked it up my self. I could really care less what state you live in. And you only put 5 you have 11 more sites to post for me. For all I know you are a MI mmj resident.
     
  9. :D Your great man and as you said, you can look it up your self.

    Start a blog about it. Do something useful, give back to the community, and happy horse shit like that....

  10. wow this got off topic while I was gone. Asthmatic - I wasn't asking if I would qualify. My question was basically, can a Dr in an non mmj state give a rec to their patient who lives in a mmj state.

    If I'm understanding the bill right, if it passes here you must have an ongoing relationship with the DR. Hence my question.

    Ongoing relationships are standard language for the MD should know you and be doing regular followup on your qualifying condition.

    They don't want pot docs setting up rubber stamp shops and then never seeing their patients again.
