Article – Dr. Jacob Mirman on the Tom Barnard Morning Show


CLICK HERE to listen to the conversation between Dr. Mirman and Tom Barnard on Medical Cannabis.

Recently Tom Barnard invited Dr. Mirman to be a guest expert on the show because Tom is a self-proclaimed patient at Life Medical and is currently using Medical Cannabis.

Dr. Mirman from Life Medical has been a fervent supporter of Medical Cannabis for many years and has been on the fore-front of legislative effort to legalize medical marijuana in Minnesota from the beginning.

Three licensed medical doctors at Life Medical perform evaluations, determine eligibility and certify patients interested in Medical Cannabis for the qualifying medical conditions set by the State of Minnesota (see list of conditions below).

Once the patient has been certified by one of our doctors, the Minnesota Department of Health, Office of Medical Cannabis will do an investigation and approve the patient in accordance with Minnesota law. Patients who are deemed eligible can then apply for a Medical Cannabis Card from the Minnesota Department of Health.
