However, in order to obtain medical marijuana in a dispensary you would need to get a doctor’s recommendation. In order to provide you with this document the physician will go through your medical records in order to determine that there is no reason to deny you the permit. Afterwards he would carefully and strictly examine you to make sure you fall within the category of patients that should be allowed access to medical marijuana. Keep in mind that even if you do not suffer from some of the diseases in the list, you can still be permitted to use medical cannabis if the doctor specifically declares so.
