How to get a medical marijuana card, APPROVED CONDITIONS LIST!
Above is the list of approved conditions for Medical marijuana, If you seek a doctors recommendation for Medical marijuana, all you have to do is find a doctor near your area, (look up in Norml directory)
Step 1 - Make an Appointment
Step 2 - Bring Medical History proving the existence of your chronic medical condition
Step 3 - Talk to the doctor about how your use of cannabis improved the quality of your life and relieves said chronic condition
Step 4 - You must have a STATE ID + 150-175 dollar fee for the cost of recommendation
if your recommendation is rejected typically you do not have to pay any money for your visit.
What you need -
a chronic condition
IF YOU DO NOT HAVE MEDICAL RECORDS ESTABLISHING YOUR CHRONIC CONDITION
(how to build 1)
Step 1 - Visit a doctor, complain to him about your symptoms / pain / disorders
Step 2 - Get his Official Diagnosis
Step 3 - Obtain Treatment / Prescription Drug
Step 4 - Visit this doctor again, complain that said drug isnt working
Step 5 - Repeat
you should now have an established case history for 60-90 days documenting your condition, failed treatment of said condition, and official diagnosis from a medical practioner (In addition if you have chronic pain / muscular / joint etc a chiropractor/acupuncturist can provide a sufficient medical evaluation and is also a legit source for medical records)
In fact well documented use of other homeopathic remedies in sufficient detail can also be used as medical records that are necessary to obtain a recommendation for medical marjiuana
(these medical records will hold up in court)
(Again fraud is illegal) - this is for people who are in actual pain, and have not sought medical treatment or evaluation before, which is necessary to obtain a medical recommendation for cannabis
THIS IS NOT FOR THE USE OF ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES.

Good luck, everyone should have access to this natural medicine.

Nice post but the condition does not have to be chronic - thus the 6 month recommendation versus 12 months.
generally some doctors will reject your recommendation on the basis its not a chronic condition, that can be treated with a regiment of other drugs temporarily. or some nonsense

Very true - It would be much better having a chronic condition for a medical card/recommendation but at the same time you're swearing to have a chronic condition...in legal terms this can have bearings on future careers as well as insurace policies. My friend just got her card for non chronic knee pain due to an injury requiring surgery - completely legit reason which is semi-long term but wouldn't be classified as chronic and i think she would be annoyed to have it classified that way. Thats a very helpful list though! Thanks!

(im not meaning to be harsh btw) haha, its just i really hate insurance companies fyi~
The concern about health insurance is a very real one. Disclosing you have a chronic condition if you don't have one can be a very costly mistake.
Most people don't know this, but many doctors will give your private medical data to the MIB (Medical Information Bureau) which then gives access of all that information about YOU to all insurance companies.
The only reason I know this is because I worked in health insurance for more then a few years and saw a lot of people get screwed over. You can pay your premiums for years, have an accident and have your coverage pulled out from underneath you in an instant because of medical records you didn't disclose because you didn't even know they existed!
Anytime I visit a doctor I NEVER give them my social security number and I ALWAYS ask if they will give my medical information to the MIB.
In an effort to sanitize the internet your signature has been edited. We suggest you consider professional help.
Again, I never told anyone to falsify medical information

im just curious does this link help anyone? or old knowledge, unhelpful?
this all varies from state to state
dirt is delicious
