Find Out If You Qualify

Many People Qualify for an Arizona Medical Marijuana Card!

Many people think that in order to qualify for a medical marijuana card in Arizona, you must have one of only eight diseases. That is a myth! You do not have to have a disease at all to qualify for medical marijuana. In fact, the broadest qualifying condition is any condition causing severe and/or chronic pain, which as you can imagine includes a lot of different medical conditions. For example, although Sickle Cell Anemia is not listed as one of the eight “automatically qualifying,” diseases, Sickle Cell often causes great pain, and most patients with Sickle Cell would qualify for medical marijuana under the “chronic pain rule.”

Also, a treatment that causes great pain or nausea, for example, also qualifies. If you were perfectly healthy internally, but you were going through painful physical therapy to recover from a car accident, you would likely qualify for medical marijuana, even though “being in a car accident” in and of itself isn’t a qualifying condition, the painful physical therapy would be. In other words, many people qualify for medical marijuana under Arizona law.

Chronic Pain Qualifies Under Arizona Law

Chronic pain can be caused by a condition (such as chronic tendinitis) or even the treatment for a condition (such as a medication that causes bone pain).

Chronic Nausea Qualifies Under Arizona Law

There are many things that cause chronic nausea, including migraines, gastroparesis, and a host of others. If you suffer from chronic nausea, due to a medical condition or even due to the treatment of a medical condition (i.e. the pills you take cause nausea), you would likely qualify.
