Marijuana use and being listed for kidney transplant

Does mayo clinic allow marijuana use when being tested and listed for kidney donation and transplant

Hello @lfletcher91. This is a complicated question that doesn't have a clear answer in research. Some early studies show that outcomes of kidney recipients from donors who used cannabis showed no change in results of those who received kidneys from non-cannabis users:

As far as Mayo Clinic goes, it may be worth reaching out to the Kidney Transplant Program,, for specific questions regarding donation/transplant.

@lfletcher91, if you are comfortable sharing, are you looking to donate or in need of a kidney transplant?


Im in need of a transplant and ive completed workups and test at tulane university but i moved to arizona this past month.
