Sorry about your friend. The link is the State website. Patients under age 18 must have the consent of their parent or guardian responsible for medical decisions. The parent or guardian must be the registered caregiver of the minor patient. Over 18 no consent needed - other than have a Dr. sign the form.

Taegan Originally Answered: Michigan Medical Marijuana for congenital cataract?
Ask the Dr. A Dr. has to recommend MMJ and cataracts are not on the list which does include Glaucoma. The Michigan Medical Marihuana program info: http://www.safeaccessnow.org/section.php... Research: http://medicalmarijuana.procon.org/ http://www.mpp.org/library/marijuana-hea... It is easier in the few States where MMJ has been available for 10 years to obtain a Dr signature. Denying a person medication based on personal feelings is ignorant.

Seems like you can get a MML for just about anything these days. The latest research shows there to be of no significant benefit over legitimate medication. In the case of cataracts? There would be no actual benefit on your ability to see. It just depends on what your true motives are. A lot of counties are banning the use possession and anything that a MML would do for you. I would go the surgery route as advised by your eye care professional. Better in the long run to be able to see, than to smoke pot blindly.

ummmmmm exactly how do you think marijuana is going to cure your cataract? you really must not know much about cataracts. the only way to cure a cataract is to have cataract surgery. marijuana is NOT going to give you better vision. just reading your question makes me LOL cuz you are so ignorant.

There is no minimum age for this. It's about need, just like any other medication. You must have your parent/guardian sign a consent form if you are under 18 years of age.

LaLa has it right. Too many groups lobby against legalizing mj. Ritalin, Adderal, and other ADHD meds are essentially cociane or meth for kids. MJ should be legal. Did you know that new research shows that marijuana actually kills cancer cells... rather than creating them? It actually causes them to eat themselves in a process called "autophage". Also, instead of killing brain cells, studies show it actually promotes the growth of new brain cells? http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn81... Cancer Studies: THC (marijuana) helps cure cancer says Harvard study http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/200... Marijuana Chemical May Fight Brain Cancer Active Component In Marijuana Targets Aggressive Brain Cancer Cells, Study Says http://www.webmd.com/cancer/brain-cancer... Did you know that the cannabinoid receptor is the most prevalent cellular receptor in our brains? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cannabinoid_receptor This mystery began to unravel in 1964, when tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, the main psychoactive chemical in cannabis was isolated and synthesized by Raphael Mechoulam and colleagues in Israel. Subsequently, in 1988, Allyn Howlett and colleagues discovered the cannabinoid receptor in the brain. This receptor called CB1was a precise match for the unique chemicals called cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant (phytocannabinoids). This initial discovery led to scientists hypothesizing that humans are "wired" for cannabis. The CB1receptors have been found in the brain in areas that control the coordination of movement, emotions, memory, reduction of pain, reward systems, and reproduction, yet are almost absent in the brain stem (which affects our vital functions such as breathing). It appears that cannabinoid receptors, which modulate other neurotransmitter function in a retrograde “on demand” fashion are present in far higher concentrations in the brain than any other receptor. While the CB1 receptors are primarily found in the central nervous system, a second type, CB2, discovered in 1993, are found primarily in the immune system, GI tract, liver, spleen, kidney, bones, heart, and peripheral nervous system. In fact, the CB2 receptor appears to be up-regulated whenever there is tissue pathology. Did you know that the government actually has the patent on medical marijuana... for use in fighting diseases such as cancer, Crohn's disease, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer's disease and more? And yet they repeatedly say that there is "no medical use" for marijuana. Look it up. U.S. Patent #6630507 It's like a MIRACLE DRUG because the endocannabinoid system in your body controls so much chemically... by stimulating this system, many positive effects can occur in many different organs of the body. If you don’t believe me, check out the studies at www.pubmed.gov … just type “cannabinoids” and “cancer” in the search bar and you’ll see the results of the HUNDREDS of studies that show that the THC in marijuana actually kills cancer cells, both in human tissue cultures and in animals. But… they won’t let us do studies on humans because mj has been labeled the “devil’s weed”. HA! But there is plenty of anecdotal evidence. (People who didn't want to wait on the government to legalize medical marijuana to help with their illness. We've been waiting over 40 years, after all.) I have been in correspondence with the head of the biology dept at a major university in Colorado, and he's knows people personally who have used super-concentrated cannabis oil to CURE their cancer. His own girlfriend got rid of her skin cancer completely applying cannabis oil topically. You can also find video diaries on the internet of people who have gotten rid of skin cancer using cannabis oil. Also video diaries of people who have had miraculous healing of 3rd degree burns. One video diary I found had an AIDS patient who was ingesting the oil and cut his T-cell count from over 800 to around 400 in just a few weeks. Rick Simpson has cured hundreds of people over the last few years and has plenty of written and videoed testimony. Google "Run from the Cure".

What do you consider "medical"? Much of what is being sold today has nothing to do with medicine, and in any event, the proper procedure should be to extract the THC and other alkaloids, render them into a tablet, and dispense them by prescription to, e.g., cancer patients and the like. It is true that California and a few other states have passed "medical marijuana" laws. These are opposed by federal legislation still on the books. That legislation has been supported by the Wickard case for some time, but Wickard was a perverse ruling which eradicated all distinction between "interstate" and intrastate commerce, so if you're a good constitutional lawyer, you should be able to get around it. Of course, if you're stoned, you probably won't be making very coherent arguments to the judge.
