Medical Cannabis in Maryland - A Comprehensive Look

Are you considering becoming a cannabis recommender? Are your patients asking you questions about medical cannabis?
If your patients are asking questions, please remember that, under Maryland law, only practitioners certified by the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission can write certifications for medical cannabis to patients with a qualifying medical condition. Qualifying medical conditions include cachexia, anorexia, wasting syndrome, severe pain, severe nausea, seizures, severe or persistent muscle spasms, glaucoma, post-traumatic stress disorder, and chronic pain.
Maryland law requires the following for issuing a written certification for medical cannabis: 
  • A “bona fide physician-patient relationship” with the patient;
  • The patient’s condition must be severe;
  • Other medical treatments must have proven ineffective for the patient’s condition; and
  • The physician must have a reasonable expectation that the patient’s symptoms can be relieved by the use of medical cannabis.
Do you want to learn more?  MedChi is hosting a continuing education event that is now open for registration:  "Medical Cannabis in Maryland - A Comprehensive Look." 
Registration is only $25 for MedChi and MSDC members ($150 for non-members).  The event will feature an exhibit hall of growers and dispensaries, and our CME program will focus on legal, clinical, and practical aspects of medical cannabis for Maryland providers.
