Your Medical Marijuana Doctors Responsibilities

Your Medical Marijuana Physician’s Responsibilities

The physician caring for the qualified medical marijuana patient must fulfill the following criteria and responsibilities:

* Possess a license to practice medicine or osteopathy in California issued by the Medical Board of California or the Osteopathic Medical Board of California. This license must be in good standing.

* Take responsibility for an aspect of the medical care, treatment, diagnosis, counseling, or referral of the applicant (patient).

* Perform a medical examination of the applicant (patient).

* As a result of the medical examination, document in the patient’s medical record that the patient has a serious medical condition and that the medical use of marijuana is appropriate.

* Have the patient sign an authorized medical release of information. The county program cannot process the patient’s application without the appropriate authorization for release of medical information.

* Provide to the patient copies of the medical records stating that he or she has been diagnosed with a serious medical condition and that the medical use of marijuana is appropriate. You may use the Written Documentation of Patient’s Medical Records (PDF) form to serve this purpose (a copy must be kept in the patient’s medical record).
