When medical marijuana was first legalized, I went to a medical professional in neighborhood that was supposed to be able to write prescriptions for the medicinal plantâ€¦ I made an appointment online and I had to pay a fee to schedule the appointment time.
I arrived at the time tied up online and the room was filled with people from 1 wall to the other! When it was my turn to meet with the medical professional, I had to pay the appointment fee of $250 up front, even before I met with the medical professional, as soon as I walked in the room, the dentist took my vital signs and my blood pressure; The dentist asked a couple of routine questions, but none of them had anything to do with medical marijuana.
I met with the medical professional about fifteen minutes later! He asked myself and others why I came in for a visit and I politely responded with my request for medical marijuana. That’s when the medical professional Informed myself and others that I had to be his patient for a year, before he could legally prescribe medical marijuana. I had to see him 3 additional times throughout the year before he could write a prescription for medical marijuana. Each 1 of those times, I was going to be forced to pay a $250 fee. I thought it was easily deranged and I even thought it was a scam. I decided not to see that medical professional anymore. I later found out that the medical professional never had his license to prescribe medical marijuana. He was on the news after being arrested for defrauding more than 1500 people before he got caught.
