Whenever I’m at a new doctor’s office, I try to read the medical pamphlets offered in each respective lobby. Even though I always have my smartphone with me and could just as easily browse the internet, I still like to read medical pamphlets, especially if I’m seeing a specialist who I’ve never met before. For instance, I had to see a sports physician once after I injured the muscles in my arm. In the waiting room there were brochures discussing all different kinds of muscle injuries from head to toe. There was one specific brochure discussing all sorts of arm and shoulder injuries. Before I even went back to see the doctor, I had a good idea of what could have happened and what I would need to do with physical therapy to get the muscles to heal. When the physician ran a few tests, including an x-ray and CAT scan, he said that I had a torn rotator cuff. This was one of the injuries I had read about in the brochure in the doctor’s waiting room. When I was waiting in the lobby at the medical marijuana dispensary, I noticed that they had a number of brochures to read themselves. There was abundant literature to read detailing all sorts of information regarding medical cannabis and it’s common uses. For someone who is new to cannabis and is trying the plant for the first time, these brochures are extremely beneficial. Even the best marijuana physicians can’t remember every fact or piece of information when they’re helping new patients see their way through the process. With all of the money spent on becoming a medical cannabis patient, there doesn’t seem to be enough information from the state regarding what a new patient should do. The dispensaries are doing their best with these brochures.
