My wife, Kate, suffers migraine. To call it "headache," is understating its force. Migraine sufferers will tell you of its potent impairment: devastating head pain (like someone is shot in one side of the head with a hot bullet), accompanying nausea, perhaps vomiting, even a seizure in rare situations. An incessant array of lights, sparkles, colored invaders attack the vision; one's sensitivity cannot tolerate any light once the barrage of pain and perceptions begin. The usual migraine sufferer must retreat to a dark room for several hours.

Thirty million Americans between ages 15 to 55, approximately 6 percent of men and 18 percent of women, suffer migraine. MCT Illustration

Many of the great icons of Western civilization have suffered migraine: Julius Caesar, Charles Darwin, Sigmund Freud, Albert Einstein, Thomas Jefferson and many others. Even while great, enduring truths have emerged from the minds of these imposing figures, they were brought to their knees with disabling head pain by migraine.

Migraine is caused by a spasm of a blood vessel in the brain. Classic medications facilitate vasodilation in order to reduce the spasm. Yet, in spite of the caffeinated drugs and vasodilators available to treat the acute headache; medical marijuana does wonders for migraine. It not only relieves the headache pain, but it also calms the patient who is often agitated with head agony.

Marijuana is available now as a pill (tetrahydrocannabinol) called Marinol. But our patients will readily tell you that the pill does not work as well as "straight" marijuana. The marijuana should not be smoked – since the very smoking can trigger a migraine. Rather, it should be consumed as one of the very many edible forms of marijuana available, i.e. as a cookie, brownie, candy, soft drink, etc.

Why has the established medical authority not embraced this very useful drug, when the American Indians used marijuana as medicine for arthritis, childbirth, and nausea and vomiting for at least 500 years before we even arrived here?

Why has the federal government still not approved medical marijuana? Are they afraid that by approving marijuana as medicine (under a physician's direction) it will aid or abet the illicit drug trade? Firstly, in California, medical marijuana is grown with a grower's license similar to the patient's user license, and the supply of the medication is very amply available legally to the dispensaries.

Are they just intimidated by the "bad wrap" that the FDA gave marijuana in the 1930s, when it was classified as a class1 drug – like morphine and codeine? In response: medical authorities will assert that marijuana is not addictive. Furthermore, the federal government doesn't seem to mind that we physicians administer narcotic so freely (Vicodin, Norco, Soma, Tylenol 3&4, etc.) to minimize pain, when, in fact, for chronic pain – we render these helpless and hapless patients into narcotic addicts. Marijuana has never killed anyone; narcotics have killed thousands, perhaps millions.





Medical Marijuana Dispensaries

Now that you have a doctor's recommendation to use medical marijuana, you are going to have to find out about weed dispensaries in your area. By their very nature these are discreet establishments, so the best option would be to search online for local clubs.

Once you have compiled a list of places that you think look easy to get to, you can begin your search for the club that best suits your needs. There are some basic considerations that bear discussion.

The club should be clean. No question about it. This is essentially either a medicine or a food stuff, and as such marijuana needs to be presented with basic hygiene standards.

Security is important as well. A good club will have security guards, but won't make you feel that you are under surveillance yourself. Local zoning may require the club to operate in a less than ideal part of town, and if you would feel better having the security guard escort you back to your car with your purchases, by all means ask.

Many clubs offer other therapies as well. You might find that acupressure, massage therapy, or even yoga works well in conjunction with your medicine. If this sounds interesting to you, then you should investigate more holistic wellness center style clubs.

Parking is also a consideration. In fact, most of the usual things you would look for in a business apply here. There is no fundamental difference between a club and any other shop.

Most importantly, you are looking for a good selection of flowers and concentrates at prices that you can afford. If you find that along with a clean facility and a friendly and knowledgeable staff, you can probably end your search for one of the great weed dispensaries right there. At least for the time being.
