MMJ Doctor’s Recommendation
Prop 215 Vs Prop 64
In California, the possession or use of marijuana for recreational purposes was illegal going into the election. The passage of Proposition 215 in 1996 legalized medical marijuana. Although the Department of Justice under President Obama did not prosecute most individuals and businesses following state and local marijuana laws, both medical and recreational marijuana were illegal under federal law in 2016. Proposition 64 made recreational marijuana legal in California state law. Prop 64 is currently working through all the logistics for recreational marijuana. At this time we can only service proposition 215 for medical marijuana until further notice.
What Medical Conditions Qualify?
“You don’t need to have a terminal or debilitating illness to receive a recommendation for marijuana. [Prop 215] gives doctors the freedom to evaluate the suitability of marijuana for each individual patient on a case-by-case basis.”
A multitude of applications.
The other illness phrase was included because regulators understood that marijuana can treat many conditions. They didn’t want to prevent any patients from receiving the medicine they need by creating a list that was too narrowly defined. Cannabis has been shown to assist with a range of other illnesses, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, and insomnia.
