tricky question about MMJ qualification

Discussion in 'Medical Marijuana Usage and Applications' started by schmedrickk, Feb 15, 2009.

  1. Hello,

    I am new to this forum and it looks like a great place to share information.

    Under my state law, Hepatitis C qualifies as an MMJ condition. About 5 years ago during a routine pre-operation study, it was discovered that I had tested positive for hepatitis C anti-bodies in my bloodstream. I then made several appointments with an infectious disease specialist and he confirmed the positive results. Testing positive for hepatitis C anti-bodies means that I have been exposed to the disease.

    My doctor then ran several RNA tests over the next 3 years to determine the level of virus within my system, but each test came back under any detectible levels of the disease. My doctor told me that since I test positive for the anti-bodies I do have the disease but it is most likely lying dormant in my system. It could wake up at any time or it could continue lying dormant for an undetermined amount of time.

    So, my question is, under these conditions, would I qualify for MMJ?

    Thanks for any help you can provide.

  2. What state?
  3. Sorry, that would be Washington State.
  4. It really would be up to the doctor who writes the recommendation I think.
  5. Bingo.
