Hi guys, I was wondering does anyone know anybody who is actually prescribed marijuana for medical use? I noticed Montana is a state that allows it so I was curious as to how often doctors actually prescribe it and what for. I know it helps with appetite for people on chemo and maybe anti-anxiety? Our current state doesn't allow it (though it is decriminalized here for recreational use).

You can Google the NORML website and the state of Montana has a detailed page on the state's official website on what is involved. Doctors here do not prescribe it, they sign an affidavit stating that you qualify, (based on other doctor's medical records on you) and the state issues you a card to let you grow it or have a caregiver grow it for you. You do not have to be a user to be a care giver and the money you make is not required to be reported as income to the state.

It is? I guess I'm typing to a ghost thread then...

Can't figure out what is illegal about the the posts in this thread above this one either.

Which makes me wonder -- where does such a discussion cross the line? for instance, what about discussing how to overcome the challenges of growing medical marijuana in MT's climate? (Assuming you don't just grow your pot indoors in a, uh, pot.)

Guess this is a touchy issue or something? I read the law and it is perfectly legal that is why I asked, just being curious. I don't have cancer (hopefully!!) just wondering!

Yeah, thanks to the War on Drugs, which would be better called the War on Citizens' Rights, it's become a hot issue, and there are places where even bringing up the topic would put you on a police watch list. Fortunately MT seems to be moving the other way, toward more of a culture of state and individual rights and responsibilities rather than of federal control and micromanaging people's behaviour.

(I don't use, never have, and hope I never have to. Nonetheless, I think it should be legalized, regulated, and taxed.)

I agree Reziac. Nothing wrong with it! It's actually less harmful than alcohol and tobacco overall. I watched my grandma die of cancer and she couldn't eat, she wasted away. I know she could have used medical pot to help her #1, eat and #2, feel a little happier. She was in so much pain. I feel horrible just remembering it, I can't imagine living it.

There's a huge, legal, grow operation on Highway 12 on the Westside of Helena. Personally I would be happier if they grew heirloom organic fruits and veggies.

Really?? Well, I agree, but people are going to farm what they can make a living at, and it's tough to make it with veggies at this point.

Pot is actually California's #1 cash crop, despite every effort to suppress it, which goes to show how dumb it is to NOT legalize and tax it.
