THCF Medical Marijuana Clinics - FAQ

What conditions qualify for medical marijuana?

Chronic pain, chronic nausea, AIDS, cancer, glaucoma, hepatitis, chronic muscle spasms and other spastic disorders, such as multiple sclerosis, seizure disorders, such as epilepsy, gastrointestinal disorders, such as IBS, Crohn's disease and the inability to eat, or patients who have medical treatments for other conditions that cause one of these conditions.

Once I have a medical marijuana permit, how do I get the herb?

Each state medical marijuana law allows patients with a doctor's authorization to grow, possess and use medical marijuana. There are patient support groups in every medical marijuana state that give out or trade plants, strains and medicine. It is also legal for patients with a doctor's authorization to obtain cannabis and plants on the black market, though the person selling it is breaking the law (they probably know that), the patient is not.

How much does it cost to get a medical marijuana permit?

Our clinic fee has a sliding scale, so we lower it for patients on a limited income. Call our office for more information. There is a state fee for states with a state registry. In Oregon, it is $100 a year for most people, but $20 a year for patients on OHP or SSI. In Colorado, the state fee is $90 a year. In Hawaii, the doctor must collect the $25 a year fee and the doctor pays it to the state for each patient. There is no state registry, therefore no state permit fee, for patients in California and Washington state.

Can patients with a state medical marijuana permit travel out-of-state with cannabis?

Only the state of Montana has a clause that says patients with other state's medical marijuana permits are also legal in Montana. Otherwise, outside of your state, you are at the mercy of any law enforcemnt officer who catches you with your medical marijuana. Outside of Montana and the state where your medical marijuana permit is issued, compassionate officers will let you be, while totalitarians may arrest you.


Under state law in California, Colorado, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island and Washington medical marijuana has helped hundreds of thousands of patients enjoy a better quality of life. Medical marijuana assists many in stopping or reducing habit-forming medications and allows them and their families to lead fuller and more active lives.

All of our physicians are fully licensed, experienced, well informed and compassionate. Our staff explains each state’s unique program and helps patients locate community resources so they can best benefit from their state’s medical cannabis law.


THCF TRIFOLD BROCHURE 2009 You can now download and print our 2009 Trifold Brochure containing valuable information that can help you or a loved one take the first step in becoming a qualified medical marijuana patient.



Becoming a Patient

Our physicians require that each patient have current medical records that document the existence of one of the conditions for which medical marijuana is authorized under their state law. You must either obtain your medical records yourself (which may involve a fee) and bring them in to us, or you may authorize that your medical records be faxed or mailed to one of our offices. Please BE SURE to clarify with the doctor's office that you only need 2-3 visits of chart notes pertaining to your qualifying condition, NOT your entire medical record. Have them include any relevant x-ray or MRI reports (not actual film), and also YOUR name and phone number.

Since our doctors are consulting with patients solely about their qualification for medicinal cannabis, and can not act as a patient's primary physician, we require that all of our patients have at least one other current physician.

Please fax relevant medical records to closest office to you: or deliver/mail them to your local THCF clinic. What to Expect at Your Appointment

After checking in, we must copy your state identification card for our file, pull your medical records, and create our THCF medical file. You can expect to fill out some questionnaire forms whether you are a new or returning patient. There is a 20 minute orientation video to educate you about your state’s medical marijuana program, and then you will have time to ask a staff member any remaining questions you may have. What follows will be a non-invasive exam by an RN or NP, a meeting with our MD who will review your entire situation, make his determination, and fill out necessary forms. Once we both have copies of all necessary information and permit forms filled out, you will be ready to go!

Please call our office for further information or to schedule an appointment.
