Cannabanoids: Any doctor prescribing this for non malignant pain would risk losing their license. "sore" back in an 18 yo is no indication for narcotic or controlled meds. If pain is so severe, you need a comprehensive exam. This is the exact problem that states like ar have tried to resolve by completely outlawing the meds for all diagnoses. This is inappropriate to even ask.

Not this site: This is a public medical information site.We don't offer diagnosis or treatment for anyone for anything. If you think your issues are compelling, you must seek out & find a local provider to sign off on your "card". Many of us would look to your question as drug seeking behavior and release you from our medical practice.
