    i'd suggest you attend a community meeting of RIPAC, a patient advocacy
    group here in RI that helps patients and caregivers.

    they don't recommend Dr's per se, but i'm sure you will be able to get a list
    of mmj doctors from them, unofficialy at least.

    here is a link to their site where you will find much info that will be helpful.

    btw, the RI board will be as active as we make it.

    Smile Thanks for posting!

    hey,

    thanks to you 2 for posting. I'm trying to figure out how to email u private, but I'm not all that computer savvy and I'm goofy already (pre-mmj, ha-ha! :} ). I found the RIPAC page, thanks. And I know someone who would be interested in becoming my caregiver since I am, well... I'm me.

    could one of you figure out how to email me either to the inbox here or on y@h0o, so I can figure out how to reply back?

    The article from the Providence journal which
    "Galaxy" posted was very interesting. "Plant manager", that's a good title!

    The info to the noobs, like me, from "justanoterbozo" is very helpful!

    Just another shout out - thanks for adding me to ur "friends", you nice person!

    Will try to figure out how to do more for myself on this board, and out in the world and quite being such a little panty-waste....ha!

    Thanks again, will try to keep up,

    "helps"

    you're welcome, i'm glad to help you as others helped me, that's what it's all
    about, sharing the love, lol.

    anyway, this site doesn't have private messaging so no way to do it here.
    keep in mind that your security should be uppermost in your mind until you are
    completely legal, as i am not. my doctors all work for the federal government
    so no recommendations from them i'm afraid.

    in any event, if you have any questions you should just ask them, there are many
    fine people here who go out of their way to help others so any questions you ask
    will be answered from many different perspectives.

    also, you should consider growing your own rather than finding a caregiver.

    as a lifelong smoker (i started blazing in '68) and a relatively new grower myself
    (2 years, approx.) i can't stress enough how much love you get from
    the growing itself, for me, that has become even more relaxing and enjoyable
    than smoking.

    and it really isn't all that hard, if you can grow tomato's in your back yard,
    you can grow weed in your closet.

    here are a few pics of some of the buds i grew in my closet under some CFL's.

    I need to make it to one of those meetings...

    Kind of grumpy just now , been through the mill with the medical offices and facilities.

    I would like to go to one of these meetings - can't drive myself just now.

    ( Trying to manage this "control panel", managed to upload a pic, but it did not add my friends...?

    Thanks for the bump,

    high man, sorry i can't pick you up myself as i am vehicleless.

    anyway, here is a link to RIPAC's website and if you click on the 'Contact Us'
    button, then fill out the form and let them know your situation, they will either
    come pick you up themselves, or arrange for another member to come get you.

I think between the chronic pain, anxiety, and the constant stomach cramps I get from all the stress should warant me a Card... Any comments out there? also my email address is bxavier@cox.net, someone send me the name of a Dr that has a clue, that one in Cranston woulD be great, but ill take any. I shouldnt have to suffer AND I dont want to break the law just to manage my pain naturally.

    Dude I have been on these boards for a while and finally got up the nerve to ask 4 help getting a Dr as I definitely qualify according to the rules. I think you are very compassionate and helpful the world needs more of this.
    Thanks!

    If anyone out there can assist with a Dr recommendation please help.
    God Bless you all.

    Hello.
    I would like to apply for mmj but I cannot find a doctor to follow up with. I have ssi because I am disabled and suffer from chronic pain, muscle spasms, nausea , ptsd, severe depression, bi polar disorder,hemipoligic migraines caused by a blood vessel disorder, diabetic retnapathy, and have a history of stroke and epilepsy. I find that I am allergic to a lot of pain medications, and that recently the medication for my migraines and blood vessel contriction has been discontinued. I'm tierd of taking medication that counter acts and find that when I smoke It relieves not only the pain but brightens my spirits and allows me to calmly function with lil to no side effects (drowsiness being the only one) compared to what meds I have been on. I've never had any arrests, and I've never been in trouble with the law..I just want to live through a day where pain isn't so overwhelming that I can't even get out of bed... Can anyone help?

    I went there yesterday, I highly recommend. It's not a free ride as it cost $300 and you need documentation of your illness. But if your Dr. will not sign the form, this is a quick, easy, and professional route.

    Peace, Karma, & Prosperity to all.
