I have read several posts stating that pain doctors prohibit medical Marijuana for their patients even though it is legal in their states. WHY???? How can they call themselves PAIN DOCTORS when they prohibit a treatment that may help or eliminate the pain? The patient is forced to sign a statement that they MUST NOT take anything not prescribed by the doctor. Get out of the dark ages doctors and use ALL of your weapons to help your patients who are suffering. I feel it is cruel to keep patients away from something that does reduce or eliminate pain. OR, are they intentionally keeping you in pain so they can prescribe ineffective meds or risky surgical procedures simply for the money?
