Confidentiality: If you disclose this information to your doctor in a medical encounter and it is not a threat to yourself or others it is generally confidential. Rules vary from state to state. Smoking marijuana is useful information for your provider and can help make a diagnosis or make treatment decisions. Allowing exposure of your kids to the smoke or use of drugs would be a safety issue however.
