Finding a Medical Marijuana Doctor Near You is Easy:

In 2008 Michigan passed a law allowing for the use of marijuana for medical purposes to treat the symptoms of several diseases. For patients suffering from chronic pain or chronic disease, this provided an alternative, more natural solution for their problems.

Because marijuana is not a pharmaceutical, it cannot be purchased from a pharmacy like traditional medications can. In order to gain access to medical marijuana, patients must have a card indicating their doctor’s belief that it would be beneficial to them.  You then have to grow it yourself or have a ‘caregiver’ grow it for you.

The medical marijuana card is the proof that you have this permission from your doctor. To get a medical marijuana card in Michigan, you must have what is called an “qualifying condition.” and the medical records and documentation to support it.
