"We at OSU Internal Medicine will continue to keep your health as our first priority. If you have a chronic medical condition, we will provide you the best evidence-based medicine possible. As state employees, we are not eligible for marijuana licensure. Your clinic appointment time is valuable to both of us, and in an effort to provide the best care in a timely fashion, we will not be discussing the use of medical marijuana."
What's wrong with this picture, folks?
They imply medical cannabis is not evidence-based medicine, which is completely false.
Being ineligible to give recommendations is one thing. To not allow a conversation about medical cannabis is a completely different thing.
This display is irresponsible for medical professionals. They take an authoritarian posture rather than a stance that demonstrates compassion for patients. How is talking to your physician about how Cannabis benefits you any different than telling them that Skullcap or meditation has been helpful?
There is also a major gap in education in the healthcare industry regarding the Endocannabinoid System. I bet a large number of people reading this know about the ECS on some level. Why don't medical professionals?
What can we do friends? Personally, I would like to force the conversation. Telling us to button our lips about *GASP!* Cannabis is offensive while we are paying them for this (non) service.
