Physician Certification & Practice
In order for a Pennsylvania patient to lawfully receive medical marijuana, the patient must be certified under the Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Act by a participating, registered physician. Yet despite the growing patient-demand for medical marijuana, only a small percentage of Pennsylvania-licensed physicians have become registered under the Act.
Whether you are a physician already registered under the Act, an unregistered physician treating patients who have obtained a medical marijuana certification, or a physician considering registration, you may have legal and ethical concerns arising out of the continued illegality of marijuana under federal law, the lack of FDA approval for medical marijuana treatment, or related issues.Related Services
