The Most Common Use for Medical Marijuana
The most common use for medical marijuana in the United States is for pain control. While marijuana isn’t strong enough for severe pain (for example, post-surgical pain or a broken bone), it is quite effective for the chronic pain that plagues millions of Americans, especially as they age. Part of its allure is that it is clearly safer than opiates (it is impossible to overdose on and far less addictive) and it can take the place of NSAIDs such as Advil or Aleve.
The Medical Marijuana Card Recommendation
A medical marijuana recommendation is a document obtained from a physician that states, in the doctor’s professional medical opinion, the patient has a qualifying condition and would benefit from medical cannabis use. Patients use this recommendation to apply to the agency that oversees the state’s medical marijuana program in order to obtain a medical cannabis card. To become certified for a medical marijuana card in Florida, patients must be diagnosed with conditions that fall under the state requirements. It is illegal for any physician to approve, or certify a Florida resident, without a qualifying diagnosis.
