After medical cannabis was legalized in this state, I wanted to talk to my doctor about getting a prescription.
I really didn’t know how to approach the subject with the doctor.
One day I was describing all of the pain that I have in my knees and I told the doctor that I read some studies online that said medical cannabis products could help with chronic pain. The doctor told me a couple of things that she knew about medical cannabis, but she said that she was not an expert and would be unable to help me in that department. She did, however, give me the name of a doctor that she believed was licensed to prescribe medical cannabis products. I called the doctor as soon as I left the office. The doctor didn’t have an appointment for 3 weeks. That was a pretty good sign to me. If his office is busy, then he probably can get people their medical marijuana card. If his methods didn’t work, then his office wouldn’t be busy. I made an appointment for a couple of weeks later. I took the first available spot which was a Tuesday morning at 7:30 a.m. I excitedly waited to meet with the doctor, hoping that he would be able to prescribe medical cannabis to me. The doctor was an older man. He asked me 30 or 40 different questions about my medical history. He never asked me about medical marijuana even once. At the end of the appointment, I asked the doctor if he would be able to give me a prescription for medical cannabis. He laughed and told me that is the medical office next door.
