I never thought it would be so difficult to get a medical marijuana card.
I thought that once medical marijuana was legalized, all doctors could write a prescription.
At the very least, you would think that specialized doctors, like psychiatrists, therapists, oncologists, and even rheumatologists, could write a prescription, but that wasn’t so. My rheumatologist told me the name of a doctor that could write the prescription for me, and all I could do was laugh. I told him that was the name of my dentist, and my doctor’s eyebrow rose. I couldn’t believe he was serious. In order to get a prescription for medical marijuana for my rheumatoid arthritis, I had to go to a dentist? He nodded, and I laughed even harder. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. My doctor was sending me to a dentist so I could get a prescription for medical marijuana for rheumatoid arthritis. My doctor was a rheumatologist without the ability to work with medical marijuana, but the dentist could. I was more than a little confused by all of this. I headed to the dentist and told them who had sent me and why. He must have heard this before, because all he did was nod and go into his file. Since I was already a patient of his, he jotted the prescription and told me how to get the medical card needed to purchase legal, medical marijuana. I was still a bit confused over the hoops I had to jump through, but once I got the medical marijuana, my doctor was right about how much comfort it gave me.
