Recommending Cannabis in Michigan
Medical professionals recommending medical cannabis must be licensed a Medical Doctor or Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine and Surgery fully licensed by the state of Michigan. Physicians are required to demonstrate a bona fide physician-patient relationship through:
- The physician has reviewed the patient's relevant medical records and completed a full assessment of the patient's medical history and current medical condition, including a relevant, in-person, medical evaluation of the patient.
- The physician has created and maintained records of the patient's condition in accord with medically accepted standards.
- The physician has a reasonable expectation that he or she will provide follow-up care to the patient to monitor the efficacy of the use of medical marihuana as a treatment of the patient's debilitating medical condition.
- If the patient has given permission, the physician has notified the patient's primary care physician of the patient's debilitating medical condition and certification for the use of medical marihuana to treat that condition.
