Since there was another thread on MJ...........I was thinking...........

Since MJ is sometimes used in the "treatment regiment" by some doctors (in states that have legalized MJ for medical purposes).

And since some Doctors can and will prescribe it as a medication.

Does that mean................that an incarcerated patient/prisoner can get/use his prescription?  Because, wouldn't the denial of a patient's prescribed meds be a "human rights violation?"

Course, I'm NOT talking about MJ use in a Federal Prison.   The question is for those city, county and state facilities that have passed legislation to legalize MJ for "medical purposes."

Humm.......tip of the iceberg?

Aloha, Mark

What I've never understood is how doctors in states with medical marijuana laws can prescribe it and not get into trouble with the law.  While a medical license is issued by the state, a DEA license is issued by the feds.  Marijuana is a Schedule I drug so a doctor cannot prescribe it by federal law.

They can however recommend it, which is how they bypass the DEA

When the traveling doctor shows up in his Winnebago and charges you $50 for the prescription, I have a feeling he isn't really concerned about legality.
