I am in the process of getting certified in PA for medical marijuana. I was on 60mg of Kadian twice a day for over the past three years. I completely started the process on my own. I told him why I was doing it and was 100% for it. I thought I could, starting in July of 2017 and would begin my detox at 10 mg a month. After the first month I was fine but because they don't make a 40 mg, they gave me 2-20's twice a day. However, I would need a second script in 2 weeks because of insurance and how they got it through the insurance.I just decided to just drop at that time, to just drop to the 30 mg after just 2 weeks. I've cut my dose in half over the past 2 months or so..60 mg to 30 mg. The irony of this situation is that in the 3 yrs I've been under his care and pain management contract I've never had a single dirty urine, not one. I was in a wheelchair for two years prior to finding this Dr and followed every request for Physical Rehab and to this day I've been up using a walker. The withdraw symptoms became bad right away and the only thing that would stop all the side effects was marijuana. Well now I just had my second dirty urine and on this Monday, October 9th 2017, I have to go and talk to him about no longer receiving or finishing my detox from the morphine because of 2 dirty urines for the drug that I'm detoxing from to get on!!! Yes I know what the pain contract says, but the immediate relief from the pain, cramps/spasms and severe nausea. Does anyone know of a piece of the Pennsylvania Law that allows for a person, who made the choice and was never in fear of being taken off my contract, to use marijuana while detoxing. I know the methadone clinic here allows the use of both if you go to the clinic.Something is wrong, very wrong, if this is the case! Any help? Thanks
Sorry to hear about your predicament. Do you have a Pa. attorney that you can chat with?
