Seeking Medical Marijuana Prescription

Recommended Posts

I am a 31-y.o. Allegan resident that is currently prescribed anti-depressant and anti-anxiety medication, as well as a prescription sleeping aid. I am seeking to replace these medications with medical cannabis, and therefore requesting information about local area doctors who can review my case. Please post so that I may respond.

Have you ever used cannabis before? If you have and know what its effects are, there is a doctor in Kalamazoo (Dr Crocker at Holistic Health) who can write you a recommendation.

If you are not familiar with the effects of cannabis you may want to experiment to find out if it works for you before you go through the time and expense to get a license.
