Question about getting a card

Discussion in 'Medical Marijuana Usage and Applications' started by Nowski101, Feb 10, 2009.

  1. Hello, I recently turned 18 years old and am thinking about trying to get a MJ card here in Cali. I am 6'4" and about 130lbs. VERY underweight. I have been trying to gain weight since i was 14. I just cant seem to gain weight. Alot of the time its because im not hungry enough to force myself to keep eating constantly. Will this constitute a need for a card? I also have a shoulder "condition" although i havnt had it checked out yet. If i keep my shoulder in a position for too long, it starts to burn. When i was in school i had to get up take a "bathroom" break because the burning almost brought me to tears.
    Im not too certain about all the medical benefits of cannabis, but i believe it can help, not sure though.

    Thank You for all your help
  2. Doubtful, you'll need to be seen by a regular General Practictioner (GP) and get your medical conditions documented. Once you have those, you will most likely be able to get a recommendation, but without proper medical records, no, that's probably not enough.
  3. I'm not going to say that it's going to be impossible, but typically if you are upfront with your doctor and say that Cannabis helps you eat and relieves the pain, you should be fine. But like *WildWill* said, it's very important to get everything documented, that way you don't waste $140 at a place like Medicann
