The news that doctors say is coming next week is that medical marijuana is here.
And doctors are saying that patients should get it right away, because they don’t know how long it will last.
But that won’t necessarily make any difference to the patient.
There are some differences that doctors have to be aware of.
The first is the fact that medical cannabis is still illegal under federal law.
As long as there are laws that ban it, that doesn’t mean it’s legal.
That means it’s still illegal to sell it, which means that it can’t be used in a dispensary.
That also means that there are limits to what doctors can do with it.
“That means that even if you can get a doctor to prescribe you cannabis oil and use it for chronic pain, that’s not going to make a difference to your patients,” says Dr. Kevin Warshawsky, a member of the medical cannabis advocacy group Medical Marijuana USA.
“The patient is the only person in the world who’s going to be in the position to make that determination.”
It’s still a gray area, too.
Many of the states that have legalized medical marijuana have not yet issued their rules on where dispensaries can be set up, and that’s why patients have to figure out how to get the drug legally in those states.
In the meantime, some doctors are trying to help patients.
The Oregon Medical Association has set up a website where patients can send medical marijuana recommendations to physicians.
The group also has a website called Oregon Patients for Compassionate Care, which is the place where patients are able to request that a doctor give them cannabis oil to treat pain or nausea.
And the Oregon Medical Board, which administers the state’s medical marijuana program, is making a push to get medical cannabis into the hands of more patients.
“I’m glad that there’s an opportunity to bring this to the people in our community,” says Warshawawsky.
“There’s some patients out there who have had a terrible experience with opioids and are just ready to get their pain and their symptoms under control.”
But that’s a long way from where the majority of patients are at right now.
And there are some things to keep in mind about the federal government’s position.
The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration considers marijuana to be a Schedule 1 drug, meaning that the agency is worried about its potential to cause addiction and violence.
But it is not allowed to classify marijuana as a Schedule 2 drug.
That classification, for example, would allow it to be prescribed for people with a history of substance abuse, or people who are otherwise high on opioids or who have severe mental health issues.
And even though medical marijuana has been legal in Colorado and Washington state for the past two years, the federal Drug Enforcement Agency hasn’t yet approved it.
That has led to confusion in the minds of patients.
Many people who use marijuana say that it has helped them quit using opioids, and they’re using it as a way to control their symptoms.
But for many people, it can also lead to a dangerous combination of withdrawal and addiction.
As a result, the American Medical Association, the largest medical organization in the U.K., is calling for patients to wait until doctors have more information about the long-term effects of medical marijuana before they can start using it.
There is also a bit of confusion about what happens if a patient has multiple sclerosis or another medical condition that causes severe pain, and a doctor is worried that the drug could cause severe side effects.
There’s also some confusion about the risks associated with using medical marijuana.
Some doctors worry that it could cause a serious overdose, while others are concerned that it might actually make people more likely to use opioids and other addictive drugs.
“If the person has multiple chronic pain conditions, and then they have marijuana and they feel that they’re OK and the pain has subsided and they get on with their lives, I think that’s probably a safe use of the drug,” says Mark Gottfried, an assistant professor of psychiatry at the University of California, San Francisco.
But other doctors say that patients who are on opioids should be cautious.
“One of the main things that’s important is that we’re talking about cannabis, not opioids,” says Gottfried.
“So if there’s a possibility that they are using cannabis to manage their pain, I wouldn’t necessarily want to put them on opioids.
If the patient is using cannabis for a specific chronic pain condition, that might be OK.
But if the patient has other chronic pain that is associated with opioid use, then I wouldn.
So I would definitely be cautious about prescribing marijuana to people who might be using opioids.”
One thing that has become clear over the past year is that there is no clear way to stop doctors from prescribing medical marijuana if they feel it’s not safe or if they think it might have an adverse effect.
It’s also becoming clear that marijuana can be used for certain conditions, like PTSD, or for treating certain kinds of cancer
