I am not from MI, but another MMJ state.

Most physicians simply won’t take that risk. They all have a DEA issued license, and without it they would not be able to practice…. so they err on the side of caution.

In my state, if you have cancer your oncologist MIGHT be willing to go out on limb for you. Otherwise, you would have to go to an MMJ doctor.

This is just the consequence of having conflicting state and Federal laws on the subject of marijuana.

  1. No, not all. You’re supposed to have a ” real ” reason for it. Not because you want to get wasted.

  2. Yea, sure, but it is still a Federal Crime.
    You can still be arrested and charged and have a criminal record.

  3. I heard that Michigan is pretty strict on weed. You might have to grow your own.

  4. No!! You first have to find a MMJ doctor. Get your doctor to write a statement and/or prescription that he recommends medical marijuana to treat your ailment. If your doctor will not give you a statement contact the THC Foundation, they have several medical cannabis clubs in different states that support medical marijuana and will be able to help you either find a doctor, or get your statement from your doctor. Get the documentation done. With proper documentation you can get a Medical Marijuana Card.
