You want to sign up to be a sick patient in a lot of pain?
nope. just want the marijuana
The ban on medical marijuana has always seemed bizarre to me. The are far more potent and addictive drugs (morphine, codeine, e.g.)routinely given patients every day to manage pain.
So where does one go to sign up? really. Does anyone know where to go and what is the process?
the article I read made it seem sort of complicated. I have to look for it again. You had to get an ishur from your doctor, then take that ishur to some top doctor in one of the Tel Aviv hospitals (dont remember if it was Beilinson or Ichilov or a different one), and then if he decides you need it he signs off on the marijuana
sorry, its Abarbanel hospital. details of how to get an ishur can be found here:http://www.hov.what2do.co.il/%D7%9E%D7%A8%D7%99%D7%97%D7%95%D7%90%D7%A0%D7%94-%D7%A8%D7%A4%D7%95%D7%90%D7%99%D7%AA/
A friend has been getting medical marijuana for a while now. The hospital he visits is unfortunately a mental institute although his prescription is for pain relief. Not pleasant
