Medical Marijuana

Where can I obtain medical marijuana?

The CMCR is unable to provide information on where to get marijuana. Your local community health organization may be able to provide more information.

Can you refer me to a doctor who recommends marijuana for medicinal use?

No. The CMCR is strictly a research facility. We do not refer to doctors who recommend marijuana for medicinal use.

Where can I get more information on the medical uses of marijuana?

The American Medical Association has some information on the analgesic effects and the adverse effects of medical marijuana. Conducting a web search or consulting the Journal of the American Medical Association may also provide some helpful information.
