You may have heard about the benefits medical marijuana can provide and now you want to try it for yourself. Is a prescription necessary to try this treatment? The short answer is yes and no.

Inconsistencies between state and federal medical marijuana laws can cause confusing situations for both patients and doctors. If your state has legalized medical marijuana, you know that the federal government does not, and still classifies it as a Schedule I drug. If your doctor were to prescribe you medical marijuana in this instance, they risk breaking federal law.

In states where marijuana is legal, doctors can write a recommendation. This form can safely be written after the doctor certifies you suffer from one of the conditions warranting medical marijuana under state law. Once you receive your recommendation, you will need to obtain a marijuana identification card by registering with your state. Once your card is received, you will be able to pick up your medical marijuana from a dispensary.

As legislation continues to change along with public opinion, so could the rules. For now, talk with your medical professional about the treatment options available to you in order to make an informed decision.
