Would I Qualify As A Patient?


Recommended Posts

Hello, I recently was in a motorcycle accident and broke the bones before my toes on my right foot. My toes are now crooked and I can only stand on it for about 20-30 minutes before I need to sit down because of the pain. Do you think I could qualify as MM patient? I have medical records from the accident and follow up appointments I went to for it.

 

Thank you,

-Paymon

Well Mr Vega, unless you are a doctor, don't give out medical advice. Paymon.. consult with your primary care physician. Although the vast medical benefits have been proven with marijuana, it's still fairly new in our state. Some doctors may be fine with recommending it, some may be hesitant. If that is the case, you can bring your medical records to a MMJ Clinic. If they meet the requirements of a qualifying patient THEN youre good to go.

I don't have a primary care physician. I just have the foot doctor I've been seeing since my accident. I'd be better off going to a MMJ clinic then, huh?

Broken bones backed up with medical records documenting pain or possibly medication he currently is on is enough to have a dr certify a patient. Im definitely not a DR and at no time did I give out "medical advice". I too suffer from chronic pain due to a motorcycle accident so i do feel like I am somewhat qualified to answer a simple question as this...

CHRONIC PAIN is LISTED as a condition to receive medical marijuana...

cheers and happy vibes....

Ok but if the doctor clinic he/she ended up visiting denied him or the State denies him, then that's false hope isnt it? cheers

Well, I know a LEGIT Dr that will certify him properly with no problem with his current condition... And yes, there are Dr's out there that are denying people... But if he can prove his condition, which it seems like he can... he shouldnt have an issue...

Peace!

Yep he won't have a problem if he has records of chronic pain.I went the clinic in Southfield, MI. I gave them permission to check my records then they call you back to let you know if you can qualify. You then go in for and appointment and they talk with you for a bit. The MMMCC in Southfield they are pretty good.

Consult with your primary care physician. That should be the first course of action you take in my opinion. Either way you would have to go and obtain the records from them anyways, correct?

 

 

bad advise! you dont know what the phaq your talking about!

Doctors don't hand out certifications like police do with speeding tickets. Not everyone is just "good to go".

 

 

ok 1st of all i have been disabled sice may of 1998! I want to appoligize for getting down on you a lil bit!

 

Let me just start out with my own short story! I had a good back specialist for my lower back for nearly 8yrs, I move up north and had to change over to a dr. here that kept in contact with my bone specialist. I was being written methadone for pain, xanax for anxiety, motrin 800s, flexiril, cymbalta, than celexa, nuerontins, been thru all the pain clinics there are, never got kicked out, never dr. shopped, never called any dr to get a script early, I never had any problems with my dr's, till I brought up mm! neither would even think of recomending it! I found another real dr., and brought some records to him, he gave me rec, I told that dr. im continuing to go to my other dr.s and dont need nothing but the rec, he was all good, I got legal, My dr.s asked me to do a urine drop, first time in 12 yrs! I pissed pos for thc, and was quit by dr.s! I was told i had a substance abuse problem, now that i had mm in my system, not because of the pills they were writing me for the last 12 yrs!!

 

so in reality dont ask your dr. if they work for a big system. or unless you know for sure they will do it, I thought my first back specialist would do it for sure! NOT!

 

If this happend to me, It happende to many more here!

 

Peace

While it is true that a lot of doctors will not sign a recommendation, just because your primary care doctor won't, doesn't mean you don't qualify. I do suggest and encourage all to at least talk to their prime care doctor or your specialist about the issue. How else can we integrate these doctors toward our cause? I am fortunate, have discussed cannabis use with my primary care doctor for over 25 years now. He agrees that this is just a plant, a useful plant, but still, just a plant. He has signed for me twice now, and it hasn't cost me a cent other than what I pay for an ordinary office visit, and I always combine the signing with a normal check up for my diabetes. I am a HEPC patient and can't take any pain meds whatsoever, so he sees this as a godssend for folks like me. The 6 page letter that I wrote to him is available on the old MMMA site..may be of some help to anyone approaching their own doctor...Peace...j.b.

The state does not have the right to deny ANYONE... The only reason why applications are being denied from the state is due to them being filled out wrong or incomplete BUT THE STATE DOES NOT have the right to tell you if you qualify or not.. ONLY a doctor
