medicinal marijuanaPeople who suffer from chronic pain or debilitating medical conditions sometimes find that no prescription drug helps them long-term. This leads them to wonder “Is medicinal marijuana legal in Michigan?” The good news is that yes, it is. Because marijuana is illegal for recreational purposes, you must have a medical marijuana doctor’s approval and apply for registration with the Michigan Medical Marijuana Program. Once you have a signed State Certification Form, you can apply to carry the Michigan Medical Marijuana Identification Card.

Conditions That Can Benefit from Medicinal Marijuana

The main reason we recommend medicinal marijuana for patients at Advanced Medical Associates is to help them cope with pain, nausea, or poor appetite caused by numerous medical conditions. We must follow state law when helping you qualify for the Michigan Medical Marijuana Program. That means you must have what the state considers to be a qualifying medical issue. As of early 2017, these include:

  • Agitation of Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS/Lou Gehrig’s Disease)
  • Cachexia (Wasting Syndrome)
  • Cancer
  • Chronic or Severe Pain
  • Epilepsy
  • Glaucoma
  • Hepatitis C
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Nail Patella
  • Seizures
  • Severe Nausea
  • Severe Muscle Spasms
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Medicinal marijuana can give you back the quality of life your disease or condition has taken from you, even if it doesn’t have a cure. Advanced Medical Associates doesn’t require a referral from your regular physician. We just want to see you enjoy the life-changing benefits of medical marijuana and will do whatever we can to help you through the application process. Don’t hesitate to contact us at 734-347-2127 with any questions.
