    Unhappy finding doctors

    I am a patient at the HSC pain clinic and their no help at all. Nabilone by itself doen't work. MJ works well like it fills in those peaks and valleys. No one at the clinic wants to direct me to the right place. I'm so disinchanted with the whole medical system it isn't funny

    don't get too discouraged aj, it took me a couple/few years to finally find a doctor who would sign for my exemption. it's certainly amazing how health care officials can be so ignorant of medical marijuana and how it can help the ill. keep at it an d keep asking every doctor you see about signing for your exemption. make sure that you give them lots of information about the benefits of using mmj when going to see these docs.

    This is a subject that needs to stay at the forefront of this forum. How come people aren't more willing to share information on who are the MMJ friendly doctors?

    Personally I'd love to share who my Dr is. Took me a year to convince him and he works for a hospital whose policy is to not sign for anyone. I know he took some heat for it. If anyone went to him it would be pretty easy for him to figure who sent them, then I doubt he would sign for me next year. In my case it's a confidentiallity that must be kept.
    Peace

    You should contact Michelle Rainey and ask her to help you out.

    She has put together a very useful package for Canadian Medical Marijuana users.

    She can be contacted through her website or by PM in here.

    Best of luck to you and don't get discouraged. There are a lot of us in the same boat, struggling against the system.

    unfortunately I know all too well what you mean. Having Marinol and Cesamet (nabilone, as you say) is great, but only MJ can truly give you the full benefits of cannabinoids.

    The "medical system" as you say is utterly broken and driven by profit first, compassion rarely if ever.

    I am fortunate to have a world class primary doctor, but I am besieged by asshole specialists like my jackass Rheumatologist (I would name him but god only knows what revenge a jackass like him would exact on me and ethics be damned!).....gotta love it that the very same day his records arrived at Social Security Disability Determination Services office, they sent out my initial denial letter!

    Gotta love it.....
