A chronic medical condition that is normally treated with a prescription medication that could lead to physical or psychological dependence, when a physician determines that medical use of marijuana could be effective in treating that condition and would serve as a safer alternative to the prescription medication.
A variety of conditions that a doctor would recommend prescription medication for can also be safely and effectively treated with cannabis. Many patients don’t respond well to prescription medication or suffer from side effects, so cannabis can be an alternative for these people. Especially in cases that would risk causing a patient to suffer from physical or psychological dependence from taking a prescription drug, medical cannabis could be a better choice.
