My Husband Had A new Injury And Surgery Five Years Ago. The Pain Never Went Away. He Went Through Physical Therapy And Initially Was Given Percocet But He Couldn't Function With It. He Began Using Marijuana For Pain And It Worked. He Still Has Pain But Is Well Controlled With Marijuana. He Has Not Required A Visit To The Doctor In Five Years. Would His Condition Still Qualify Even Though He Has Not Been Following With A Physician?

yes of course pain qualifies.

 

you will have to go to a doctor who will conduct a physical and give a recommendation for mmj. the cert doctor will need to conduct a checkup every 6 months to ensure a 'bonafied' dr patient relationship.

 

most good cert docs will do this. its also good if you can get your old charts/xrays from the doctors and surgeons your husband used before. that information will be added to your chart at the cert doctor and will be used to make the recommendation.

Clarification:  It is not required that it be a Primary Care Physcian who makes a recommendation for medical mj.  The Primary Care Physcian, or medical facility, will have documented in the patient's medical records that the medical condition exists.  A copy of those medical records would then be provided to the Certification Doctor.  

 

Please note that the Primary Care Physician does not need to be made aware that the patient is seeking alternative pain relief.  The institution providing the copy of the patient's medical records may ask why the patient needs a copy, but there is no requirement for the patient to disclose the reason for the request.
