the doc was a bit weird...
Hey, so i thaught I would share this little story and how I feel about the situation. If you have been in the same situation, which isn't likely (or it might be, u never know), plz share ur thaughts...
So I recently made a short trip to the doctors and was seen by a diff doc than my usual ( ok, I went to the hospital... Nothing major though I'm fine now) and was drilled very seriously about my "drug" use. He asked me "do u have any medical problems?" I said yes, chronic back pain, migranes and trouble sleeping. He asked " have u ever had surgery" I said no, because I havnt. He was like do u smoke? ...
Let me just say that I am completely honest about my cannabis use with any person that is going to give me treatment based on what I tell them, and my symptoms. So I'm honest.
Anyways, I answered "I don't smoke tobacco"
He looked at me funny, smiled and said "ok, what do u smoke?" I had to resist the strong urge to say something stupid, and I said "I have my medical marijuana license." To which he responded " for what?"
He continued " you are young to have that"
I felt like I was in the principals office or something, I was kind of upset at how he was acting twards me. I asked him what he knew about cannabis and why he seemed to have such a biased opinion about it? He didn't like that very much and said cannabis has not had the proper research to be labeled as a medicine.
Hehe I could have debated with him for hours, but I said ok and nodded.
The point of this whole story is that I was very offput about how he made me feel about his opinions, because usually I don't care what people think because I know cannabis is harmless. He is a doctor and I felt it was slightly unprofessional of him how he conducted himself...
Plz share your thaughts and oinions...
Should I not he so open about my cannabis use to physicians?
Because that seems counterproductive to me.
