I am not exactly sure what you mean by acquiring a license. I am a Neurologist in New York State, we are going through the process of being able to prescribe marijuana from 5 distributor/growing sites that are being set up around the state. As a physician with a DEA license and a special license for prescribing Suboxone, I have to attend a certification class and pass a test before I will be issued the license to write for marijuana as it will be processed as an oil (I believe). So at least in NYS, you need a medical license to prescribe. Please get back to me to discuss this further, maybe I am missing something. Dr Frank

If you wish to discuss treatment for migraine with more conventional migraine medications, please just get back to me with a list of what you have tried, how often are your headaches, do you feel them coming on, do you get visual symptoms, or what? etc. Dr Frank

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
