Medicinal Marijuana
shadie1979 asked:

I suffer from chronic pain and my doctor recently informed me that medicinal marijuana became legal in New Mexico and I may be a good candidate.The problem with this is, I am on medicaid because I can not afford to pay out of pocket for my prescriptions, so of course this creates a problem for me as the cost of a days supply of this medication will cost around $60.00. So, if anyone out there can give me an answer to my question I would greatly appreciate it.

    Get a f**king job or go back to school Einstein. Doctors don’t prescribe marijuana for pain relief its not classified as an analgesic or a narcotic. If you really suffer from chronic pain you would more than likely be on Lortab or Oxy-contin. If your looking for a dumb-ass to believe your bs, at least research it and tell the usual lie” I have glaucoma”.

    I couldn’t find anything on a google search. I think you should ask your doctor if medicaid pays for it, or give them a call yourself. I hope you can get the medicine that you need. =]

    My mother has glaucoma and they offered it to her but she turned them down.

    They DO give it for pain…my aunt was offered it when she had cancer because nothing was working and the doctors wanted her as comfortable as they could get her.

    But, you have to be in A LOT of pain for that so I dunno. Call up your company the number should be on your card.
