    Pain meds + Marijuana

    Soooo,my pain doc gave me the boot because I failed a UA for marijuana. I understand and was aware this would happen. I made my choice and stick with it. The problem I have with it is this...

    The weekend prior to my doctor visit there was a raid in the city he works in and 6 of the 20 people arrested for selling pain meds were his patients.

    Sooooooo, to cover his ass he UA's everyone the day of my appointment. 25+ people. I'm the only patient with a SCI. I fail the UA, he comes in to tell me he can no longer prescribe me meds, has to look out for himself, blah blah blah.

    I have to suffer in pain chasing down my other docs to get a script like I'm some kind of fuckin drug feen because he peddles pain pills to drug dealers and dope heads?

    If I attempted to complain to the proper authorities would I be shooting myself in the foot? I don't want this to effect me much more and should probaly let it go. It just pisses me off and I want them to know he's a licensed drug dealer.

    Well, do you think he knew he was selling drugs to dealers? Honestly, kinda doesn't sound like it to me, if he's busy doing UAs. But I don't know.

    The next question I suppose is - what do you really want?

    If you tip off the DEA that all those dealers were his patients, he might very well get investigated. Even if he's innocent, and didn't know, there is a real possibility that he could lose his license anyway.

    Do you want him out of business? Do you think that is what he deserves?

    I'm making no judgement here.

    As you said, his treatment of you was not unfair. If he is knowingly supplying drug dealers - well that's another story entirely.

    I certainly wouldn't be advertising the fact you were positive for MJ though.

    This is your answer.

    My guesses are that the DEA is going to / has already had some very serious talks with this doc, that the DEA is already aware that some of the dealers were his patients, that he was not the sole source of their drugs, and that he is kicking himself big time for not doing more routine UAs so as to have cut them off long ago. It's a pain doc's nightmare.
    And it sure makes life hell for his legitimate patients.

    You better just let it go. You might have a hard time finding another pain doc as it is, after the UA failure, and you don't want to make it even worse by sicking the man on the doctor. Best of luck, MJ helps my pain better than any narcotics.

    Ditto, to all of it. Find ya some good MJ and stay away from tobacco, it causes burning, in me anyway. For FUTURE reference, STUDY HARD for those UA's. Foley beats them every time. Drain, inject water and then go in. Be drinking lots o water b4 going in so you are pissing every 15 minutes and that will dilute the real stuph so nothing shows on test. Worked for me 2x per month for a few years. Solves the temperature problem and nothing is suspicious if you r cool.

    Been beatin them since I took my first one for joinimg the navy in 1980.

    Use a regular doc, not pain clinic, all the junkies go there n sooner or later u get a UA anyway. It's always been my belief that what i do on my own time is no one's business, u r not hurting anyone. Stupidity is all that keeps us from being legal w/the safest and best pain med there is. I'm not gonna let stupidity stand in my way of having a pain free life.

    Man it must suck living in parts of the country that demonize mj. I have a medical marijuana card, and buy my stash at the dispensary (marijuana pharmacy). the girls that work there are gorgeous, and they all know their strains, like the bible. it's lovely living in cali.

    It's true that CA has a more permissive attitude toward Medical MJ but even here a pain specialist told me that testing positive for MJ despite the card would disqualify me from whatever program they put me on.
