If you’re suffering from severe pain and nausea or cachexia, then you might want to consider taking medical marijuana. It is slowly beginning to be legalized in many states and several countries. However, you need to go about it the right way so that you aren’t falsely accused of possession and can continue relying on it for as long as required.
• The only way to get authorized is by seeking the counsel and support of your doctor. Know that you may need to have undergone conventional treatment and can only apply if it didn’t help with the symptoms and the disease or illness. Your doctor will be able to outline the benefits to be gained using medical marijuana for your case.
• Using a national or state health form for medical marijuana, fill it and attach two passport size pictures. These will be used on the identification card you’ll be issued if the authorization goes through.
• It can take a while before the application is processed because there are an increasing number of people trying to avail medical marijuana. It could take several months so be patient.
• Patients requiring end-of-life care or those with terminal illness are given preference in processing time.
