How is medical marijuana working out in the states that have legalized it? Are more than half of the users faking illnesses?

In brief: Not well
Not well for us docs doing addiction medicine.
Increases denial for patients that have addiction problems. A patient may admit they have a problem with heroin but proudly show their licence for mmj just as if it was a prescription from a physician for antibiotics. I.E. Not a problem. Even amsterdam now considers these potent strains of mmj a "hard drug".Not the same stuff as a generation ago.
