Medical Marijuana Doctors – An Insight
legalized medical marijuana in 2021 but many doctors are still hesitant to prescribe it to their patients. In fact, many state health departments are warning doctors not to recommend it to patients, stating that there is still much to be learned about the safety of medical marijuana. Many state health departments have issued statements saying they will refuse to help patients obtain marijuana from any source other than the state licensed growers and sellers. Even when the warnings have been disregarded, there are still many doctors who decline to provide medical marijuana to their patients because they are afraid that they may be prosecuted if they follow state laws requiring a physician’s written referral for the drug.

There are still many challenges to the prescribing of medical marijuana to patients suffering from serious debilitating diseases such as Cancer, Glaucoma, MS, and AIDS. Unfortunately for many qualified medical marijuana doctors are required by law to become specialized in the treatment of serious medical conditions like those mentioned above. So if you plan on getting your legally prescribed marijuana card, I highly recommend looking for a doctor who has specialized in treating your type of medical condition and obtaining your doctor’s approval before you try to start buying your medicine from any source other than your licensed state medical provider.
So what exactly does medical marijuana doctor have to do to qualify him/her to prescribe medical marijuana? According to the state health department, each of the state medical marijuana doctors has to complete an eight-hour training course on approved conditions for which the drug can be prescribed. These conditions include Cancer, Glaucoma, seizures, AIDS/HIV, MS, and epilepsy. Only doctors who complete these eight hour courses are allowed by the state to be accredited by the state department of medical insurance.
