my doc. has told me I must make a choice. I do NOT Smoke MMJ, even though it is LEGAL on the state level but since this is a medicaid clinic, I have been told, make a choice. I would like to smoke but the pain is too severe so i don,t touch the stuff. It does wonders for my depression, which brings me to my next point. How come, and i KNOW people, who see private physicians have no problem, our doc in florida had no problem as long as it was ONLY MMJ. Here in AZ, where it is Legal with a certification card, I can't and won't until my doc says o.k. She is protected under arizona law, but federal law trumps state law. How then can the director of the VA say its OK for your doc to ignore a positive test if you get narcotics - thats a federal institution so whats up with that - the usual gov. speak talking out of both sides of their mouth.
