Medical Marijuana | Michigan Application Forms

Dr. Bob discusses Medical Cannabis and the Michigan Medical Marihuana Program. In this episode we review the application forms. In future episodes we will …


  1. Preparing for my three week trip to Chicago (early tomorrow morning), else I must have a look at your series on marijuana/cannabis.
    There are a crowd over here in Sweden that wants to legalize cannabis, with rather lame arguments, like legalization would eliminate the drug dealers, would remove stigmatization of drug addicts and certainly, as cannabis is no more dangerous than alcohol it just ”have to be legalized”.
    Always interesting to learn more I will watch your videos when I’m installed in Old Town Chicago.

  2. Wow. Michigan is super strict. Im in CA and before it was legal here you had to be a medical patient to go to dispensaries. But you could walk into any Marijuana doctor with just a runny nose and get a medical card. It was pretty much 100% guaranteed. No application or anything. Granted it was abused a lot by recreational users but at least you didn't have to jump through a bunch of hoops to get decent meds. Now it's legal so that doesn't matter, but I'd be interested to hear your take on it since MI and CA have such different standards.

  3. Here’s my $0.02:
    In Alberta, we have medical pot, legalized recreational pot, and of course black market pot. Now, it’s important to remember that NO strain, variety, potency, blend, canibinoid profile, THC/CBD level, etc. has an Rx ID number. This means that no medical pot has the benefit of study, evaluation, and of course insurance coverage. This leaves all the choices regarding dosage, strain, profile etc. entirely up to the patient, who must base their decision on anecdotal evidence, trial and error, and most egregiously, price!

    Before medical pot or legalized recreational pot, patients simply went to black market. They established relationships with reputable dealers who offered high potency strains, good pricing, advice from other patients, and even free delivery. So when medical and recreational pot entered the fray, some patients did explore legal options, and very quickly learned that high pricing, strain shortages, lack of choice, and other problems w the system made their choice so much easier; the black market was clearly superior. Even those patients that wished to remain within the legalized system had no motivation to choose the medical route. Being forced to renew a prescription every 3 months, undergoing what seems an invasive interrogation, being forced into a supply relationship with ONE AND ONLY ONE online supplier, dealing with shortages, and paying double or triple for an inferior product, versus sticking with their friendly neighborhood dealer was a no brainer, but to stay legal, recreational pot dispensaries were still a better choice than the medical route.

    So we’re left with a 3 tiered system which favors organized crime. Quality producers with an established distribution network are still criminalized. The medical profession remains hobbled by the lack of studiable, researchable, repeatable, data. Proceeds of pot sales, including taxes, doesn’t go back into the legalized system, the wasteful war on pot continues, everybody suffers.

    The only real solutions to these issues is to decriminalize black market pot. Institute voluntary audit submissions from the growers. Issue Rx #s for stable strains so that patients can use their pharmacare/insurance to offset costs AND facilitate studies.Bring costs down for everyone. Redirect cops into more productive crime fighting roles. Etc etc….. Or at a very minimum just get the government out of the way of the People’s right to choose, and allow the market to rule, as our capitalist democracy enshrines.

    Slightly more than $0.02… but there it is.

  4. I had mine in AZ but let it go because I like my 2A rights more than legal weed. We live next to Cali so 🤷🏽‍♂️. It needs to be federally legalized so you can keep firearms. I have chronic pain and sleep disorders. I’ve been rx’d everything for sleep and pain (usually can’t sleep because of pain). You know what works better than anything? THC gummie bear. Eat a small amount and go to bed. When it kicks in you’ll sleep without a hangover. My wife is a Dr but can’t rx it because the hospital she works for takes federal dollars. But she has had patients get real benefits from it. Besides that, who cares???? I can buy all the vodka I can afford at the same store my kids buy Cheetos. Booze kills how many per year? Weed kills no one.

  5. 12 plants per individual :O That's A LOT of marijuana. I don't think the state realizes the potential yield from most modern marijuana plants. However, I am all for medical marijuana and think you are doing Gods work here. Thank you.

  6. Are patients prescribed dosages of cannabis, or is it taken as necessary? Here in Canada we have cannabis shops opening up everywhere. Anyone of legal age (19yrs in BC) can walk in and choose from all sorts of different varieties. We still have medicinal outlets too though. My job doesn't allow me to partake even if I wanted to, but I was just curious about that.

  7. Having chronic pain due to 3 slipped disks in my back, I was on oxycodone 40 mg / day and at that point it really stopped being effective. When I realized that this was not helping I decided to try using medical marijuana and I am finding that this is more effective and far less harmful.

  8. I never have anything negative to say about all of the subscribers I've joined so I'm going to be nitpicky on this video (no tards to laugh at). It's not a driver'S license, it's a driver license. Take a look for yourself. In CA it's on the top right. Again just being nitpicky, no insults intended. Love all the work you do.

  9. 284767 240603I actually dont accept this specific write-up. Nonetheless, I had searched with Google and Ive found out that youre correct and I had been thinking inside the improper way. Keep on creating top quality material comparable to this. 654474

  10. 362579 777965This style is incredible! You certainly know how to maintain a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (effectively, almostHaHa!) Fantastic job. I genuinely loved what you had to say, and far more than that, how you presented it. Too cool! 896135
