New Jersey has legalized the use of marijuana for medical purposes. Marlton, the city in which I live now has a licensed medical marijuana clinic. I don’t know much about this subject and have decided to do a little bit of investigative research on this Marlton medical marijuana clinic. Thoughts went through my mind about how many differents types of people this clinic will attract. I live in a fairly safe neighbourhood not too far from the new medical facility and have wondered if that would change. I don’t intentionally stereotype people but like I said earlier this is all unknown to me.
Finding information on the clinic was quite easy and in no time I was directed to their website. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that this is a reputable clinic that only recommends medical marijuana for qualified patients. You see, in order to get cannabis for medical use you have to have an ailment or disease that has been approved by the New Jersey Department of Health Services. You also have to provide the clinic with medical records that show your diagnosis. The records will be reviewed and the severity and complexity of your case will dictate whether or not they recommend you.
I’m sure this type of treatment will help a lot of people who may have felt they had no one else to turn to at some of the worst times of their life. I feel a bit sheepish for jumping to the conclusion that this clinic would have a waiting line going around the block of people trying to find a legal way to get high. I’m actually a bit ashamed of my thoughts. I am very confident that the clinic has very strict guidelines they will adhere to in order to help those with a debilitating disease.
