The law in washington state does not allow for this.
Here is some info about the medical marijuana act in washington.
â€œthe act was designed to protect seriously ill and terminally ill patients from state and local criminal penalties for using marijuana medically. Only people with a diagnosis of cancer
, multiple sclerosis
disorders, and intractable pain (see specific definitions rcw 69.51a.010, section 4, of the state law) are considered â€œqualified patientsâ€ and can take advantage of the law as a legal defense against marijuana charges.â€
a "terminal or debilitating medical condition" is defined as: â€(a) cancer, human immunodeficiency virus
(hiv), multiple sclerosis, epilepsy
or other seizure disorder
, or spasticity disorders; or (b) intractable pain, limited for the purpose of this chapter to mean pain unrelieved by standard medical treatments and medications; or (c) glaucoma, either acute or chronic, limited for the purpose of this chapter to mean increased intraocular pressure unrelieved by standard treatments and medications; or (d) any other medical condition duly approved by the washington state medical quality assurance board as directed in this chapter.â€ the washington state medical quality assurance commission added the following conditions: â€œcrohn's disease with debilitating symptoms unrelieved by standard treatments or medications & hepatitis c
with debilitating nausea
and/or intractable pain unrelieved by standard treatments or medicationsâ€.
â€œa physician must judge whether marijuana is appropriate for treatment of a specific illness or symptom. Simply having a qualifying disease does not automatically qualify anyone for protection under the medical marijuana act. Only a doctorâ€™s recommendation, and documented discussion about the risks and benefits of medicinal marijuana use, will qualify a patient.â€
i wonder if some of your sonâ€™s friends are saying things which aren't accurate. Premenstrual syndrome
does not seem to fit the requirements of the law. A physician who practices outside the scope allowed by the law is not protected from penalties and this could be considered criminal conduct.
