State-by-State: Recommending Cannabis State-by-State Legal Information and Forms for Recommending Cannabis

In Conant v. Walters (2004), the Supreme Court ruled that doctors may legally recommend cannabis to their patients. Doctors do not need to be in a state with medical cannabis laws to do so. However, each state with medical cannabis laws requires different mechanisms to put recommendations in writing so that the patient may legally access cannabis. Doctors cannot prescribe cannabis or help patients obtain the cannabis itself.
