Customer Question

I have disc degenerative disease, spondeolosis, arthritis, and nerve damage. Am I a candidate for medicinal marijuana verses man-made pain medicine? Is this legal in Texas? I live in Katy, TX. Do you personally write the prescription?

Dear customer,

Thanks for your question.

No according to the new law your condition is not indicated for the prescription of medical marijuana. Please consult a pain medicine specialist for optimal treatment and management of your pain. You should not have such chronic daily pain and there are other medications which your doctor can prescribe besides opioids which will be beneficial for you.

Take care.
