STEP 1 – Getting a Medical Marijuana Prescription
Assuming you have a qualifying condition that may require a prescription for medical marijuana [more info on qualifying conditions? click here]. In Arizona, you MUST have a Medical Marijuana Doctor, Physician or Clinic in Arizona (that is, any Board Certified State Licensed Physician) in order to carry out an “evaluation.” This evaluation is a consultation with a medical doctor; whereas you can openly discuss your medical condition under the premise of doctor patient confidentiality. It is not a problem to tell a doctor you have smoked marijuana or currently smoking marijuana. They are doctors and need to know everything in order to properly treat you. These medical marijuana evaluations are given to anyone and price ranged from $70-$150 per appointment. Where can you find a 420 friendly doctor that can view your medical issue? CLICK HERE
