The recent legalization of marijuana for medical purposes in some states has very many people excited. The excitement might be short-lived for most people since not just anyone is entitled to this form of treatment or “privilege” as some might think. One stage that an individual wishing to acquire medical marijuana would have to go through is the medical test, and here is what to expect from a doctor in case you go for such a test:
1. Why do you need this treatment? This very important question needs to be followed by your listing down the medical conditions that you are suffering from, which would be best resolved using marijuana. The doctor of course will seek to justify whether you are telling the truth or not and there is equipment for this purpose.
2. What medicines have you tried and what effect have they had on you? Of course, medical marijuana is not likely to be the first treatment option that the doctor goes for, and if you have not tried other medicines then you are likely to be requested to try other options first. However, if the doctor clearly sees that you have a case that marijuana will be most effective, then he or she will prescribe the herb.
