Medical record collection is the next step in the medical marijuana qualification process. This includes verifiable documentation of your medical condition.
Without current and verifiable medical records, the medical marijuana doctors, cannabis nurses and compassionate use clinics will be unable to certify your condition under state Medical Marijuana law.
*NOTE: Your State Process May Be Different
Collecting documentation verifying your medical condition is the second step as you will need to provide the cannabis doctor with a written diagnosis from a primary care physician or specialist. If you don't have an official diagnosis from a primary care doctor or specialist, the medical marijuana doctor may be able to take you on as a new patient, and he or she can then provide the diagnosis. Or, the medical marijuana doctor may be able to refer you to a clinic or doctor near by to provide the diagnosis. Without providing medical documentation of your medical condition, marijuana doctors and compassionate care clinics will be unable to certify your condition under state medical marijuana laws. Each legal marijuana state enacts their own laws and regulations pertaining to medical marijuana. Cannabis use is still a Schedule I controlled substance under federal law.
