Five Reasons Why Every Doctor Should Recommend Medical Marijuana
Posted by Marijuana Doctors on 05/12/2010 in Medical Marijuana
1. It’s an effective medicine for countless ailments
Medical marijuana is a versatile medicine that can help with the side effects of countless medical conditions, including cancer, HIV/AIDs, multiple sclerosis, glaucoma and more. Marijuana side effects are much milder and more manageable than those that come with traditional medicines. And unlike thousands of other medicines, there has never been a death attributed to marijuana overdose.
2. It’s legal in 14 states and counting
Fourteen states currently allow qualified patients to use medical cannabis, oftentimes after receiving a marijuana card. But this number could nearly double in 2010. Washington D.C plus twelve other states have medical marijuana legislation pending, including Alabama, Delaware, Illinois, Iowa, Maryland, Massachusetts, Missouri, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Wisconsin.
3. It’ll increase your patient base
Hundreds of thousands of patients across the country use medical marijuana. And with 12 states and Washington D.C. poised to pass marijuana legislation in 2010, the demand will grow exponentially. Medical marijuana is increasingly becoming a widely accepted medicine. According to a recent national poll conducted by ABC News and Washington Post, 8 in 10 Americans support legalizing marijuana for medical use. Increase your patient base by providing care for patients in need of medical marijuana.
4. There’s no need to deal with insurance companies
Marijuana doctors no longer have to wait weeks or months to be reimbursed from insurance companies. Since marijuana recommendations are not covered by insurance, you are paid upfront by your patients—which creates more cash flow for your practice to continue healing your entire patient base.
