Hi Dr. Rick,
I thank you very much for your time. The information you have given me, from reading the text of the link titles, appears to be exactly what I needed. I anticipate no problems approaching my Primary Care Physician with this if I go armed with the information I expect to find. As yet, I have not actually gone to the links, but on first glance they appear pertinent and even better than I was hoping for.
I appreciate you feel my information was informative. While I am not a Dr. myself, I am a trained analyst in systems in the areas of Physics and Computer Programming/Information Technologies. My information is an accumulation of 26 years of observations, studies, and experimentation upon myself.
I provide this information in the hopes that others in the future may be helped by it. Otherwise, I could have asked two simple questions without spending a couple of hours doing the write up. My apologies for the formatting of the text, but JustAnswer only allows so much text.
Being as I am on SSI with only $410/month to spend per month for everything would a tip of $30 be sufficient? I want you to be happy too.
Please let me know. You will, of course, receive the highest possible rating from me, and I appreciate the timely response. I'm used to being blown off by others that are overworked leaving them simply disinterested to hear anything. I assume that is why not a single doctor in the last 20 years has actually taken the time to ask about my history.
UPDATE: 11:15 am Monday June 3, 2013
I read both links you gave me.
One is actually a pessimistic article regarding the recent passage of Maryland's new medical marijuana laws. Re-reading the title of the article says it best...
"First, wait 3 years." So, no help there.
The other link you gave me was to find a medical marijuana doctor in my area. There are no doctors within the database on that site within 100 miles of me. I am in area code 20784. The database does not allow a search futher than 100 miles from me. Also, states do not issue cards unless the patient is a resident of that state.
You mentioned a form that is usually required to be filled out by a doctor in order for medical marijuana to be reccomended. Do you know where I may find this form for the state of Maryland?
If you do not know, please say so: you still get an excellent rating and a tip. I should note, however, that my original questions actually did not get answered, but I do appreciate your time nonetheless.
I suppose I should prepare to move. Then again, if I do have a form to show my doctor, and if he is willing to sign it, I could show it to potential employers, and would be limited to a $100 fine if I am arrested. Since I have never actually been arrested it might not happen, but I would not wish to tempt fate. Now to find a piece of wood and practice a superstitious ritual. Knock on wood.
