A few weeks ago, medical marijuana became legalized in the state that I live in.
- I am a practicing physician, and I have already faced a lot of questions about how to obtain a medical marijuana card.
Patients are also curious about what kinds of things medical marijuana can be used for. When I was in medical school, we didn’t talk much about medical marijuana. The world was different, and things were not as widely accepted as they are now. Ultimately, I decided that I need to take the matter of medical marijuana education into my own hands if I want to be able to provide the best patient care. I enrolled in a medical cannabis certification course. This course will allow me to register with the state’s Department of Health Medical Marijuana Program. This means that I would be allowed to certify my patient’s health conditions and get them on track to get their own medical marijuana card. While it will be nice to help patients with that process, I truly just want to learn more about how the medical marijuana system operates. I will also be able to work in a medical marijuana dispensary to command patients on what products would work best. I don’t intend to leave my practice anytime soon, however it’s important to continue to expand my comprehension to help my patients. I am looking forward to becoming an expert in all things medical marijuana.
