Colorado Medical Marijuana Patient Information to Remain Confidential

Todd Davis - Monday, May 23, 2011

 

 

Many users of medical marijuana in Colorado have had a growing concern regarding their personal information becoming public through state-maintained databases. This concern grew with the passing of legislation in 2010 assigning regulatory authority of medical marijuana centers, Infused Product Manufacturers and growers to the Colorado Department of Revenue. This legislation required the Colorado Department of Public Health to share limited, non personally identifying information to the DOR in order to verify the number of patients a marijuana center is serving as a provider. There is currently no such database which allows the two agencies to share information. Should this database be created, it will be intended for law officials to have access to verify whether individuals have a valid ID card. However, they can only access the system using information provided by the patient directly and no names or personal information will be shared.

As of yet, the Colorado Department of Public Health has not approved any of these conditions for the use of medical marijuana.

Debat Continues Over Medical Marijuana Recommendations by Doctors

Tougher rules and restrictions regarding Colorado medical marijuana patients have now become directed at doctors in Colorado and which in particular, which doctors should be allowed to recommend medical marijuana to patients. The Colorado Board of Health is aiming to make it clearer on how well doctors know their patients before recommending marijuana treatment and also question whether doctors with conditions on their licenses such as a surgeon being banned from surgery due to the development of arthritis should be allowed to recommend marijuana to their patients. These regulations are aimed at discouraging marijuana mills in which doctors recommend marijuana to new patients after only a brief visit. Approximately 1,300 people who applied for medical marijuana cards this last year were denied by the state due to their recommendations coming from doctors with license conditions.

A Patient’s Perspective

Todd Davis - Sunday, January 17, 2010

As the controversy rages on about the legitimacy of Colorado medicinal marijuana, there is a significant demographic supporting the product; the patient. Opponents to Denver medical marijuana and Colorado marijuana dispensaries claim that the medical benefits are a sham used as a smoke screen to simply legalize a narcotic. A true patient would disagree. In an interview with a serious patient, some genuine medical benefits were unveiled. This patient, a male in his mid 40’s, was involved in a traffic accident; both his legs were mangled in the wreck. To him, Denver medical marijuana has provided him with an alternate pain killer. He also explained that the euphoric properties help with bouts of depression revolving around the pain and make his life experience more enjoyable in general. He complained that other prescribed pain killers were more addictive, less effective, and more expensive. To him, and thousands of similar patients, Colorado medicinal marijuana doctors have helped them find a new avenue for pain relief never before available. After listening to his story, one cannot help but realize the potential legitimacy of medicinal marijuana in Colorado.    

Colorado Marijuana Users Look to Drug to Relieve Fibromyalgia Pain

Todd Davis - Tuesday, December 08, 2009

 

Fibromyalgia, a chronic pain syndrome, can be debilitating. For Colorado medical marijuana users, the answer is simple. Use of the drug in scientific studies has shown that the THC found in marijuana may help decreasechronic pain caused by Fibromyalgia. Other symptoms of the syndrome include hypoglycemia, insomnia, depression, fatigue, urinary complications and skin conditions. Through the use of medical marijuana, Colorado patients are able to effectively manage these other symptoms in addition to managing their pain. Marijuana creates a euphoric effect, which helps lift feelings of depression and is useful for managing insomnia as well. Currently undergoing THC therapy trials is a synthetic marijuana pills known as Nabilone, which has shown to greatly reduce pain and anxiety in Fibromyalgia patients. However, medical marijuana is currently the more cost effective of the two.
