Do I Qualify for Medical Marijuana?

Posted on

Back in 2012, Arizona voters made marijuana legal for medicinal use. Many people wonder if they would qualify to receive medical marijuana. In Arizona, to be considered, you must be diagnosed or in treatment for:

  • Cancer
  • Seizures
  • Muscle spasms
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • PTSD
  • Glaucoma
  • Cachexia (wasting syndrome)
  • Chronic pain
  • Nausea
  • Hepatitis C
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Severe Nausea

If you suffer from any of these conditions or are currently receiving treatment for these conditions and would like to use marijuana for pain cessation, you are eligible to apply for a medical marijuana identification card per the state guidelines.

As a qualifying patient, you must also get written certification from a doctor licensed to practice medicine in the State of Arizona. Dr. Burns offers medical marijuana evaluations and can help patients gain safe access to marijuana for the treatment of a variety of conditions.

Call The Bien-Etre Center and schedule an appointment with Dr. Burns for your medical marijuana evaluation today.
