    OK. I really do have a legitimate reason to use Medical Marijuana, and I think it might help me.

    However, my condition is a mental one and I haven't seen a psychiatrist about it since I am really paranoid about these things; I have really sever social anxiety/agoraphobia and hyperhidrosis. I know self diagnosises are dumb, but after reading I am 100% sure I have really bad cases of these things.

    My question is: How easy is it to get a prescription? Do I need past medical records to prove I am really sick? Or are they pretty lenient?

    I really don't want to blow off $500 for nothing.

    By the way, Hello. This is my first post here.

    [edit] I live in California

    Although I don't live there, from what I have read anyone who wants a medical marijuana card in California can get one.

    All you have to do is find a Dr. who thinks it can help your condition, I think there are Dr.'s pretty much dedicated to writing recommendations, so you really shouldn't have a problem.

    As far as finding a specific Dr. I have no idea but people in your area would be best able to answer that question.

    find a weed friendly Dr.

    Your condition is enough, medical records do help tho

    It won't cost $500, expect more like $100.

    You need a recommendation from a doctor. In California, that's the sole requirement.

    Specific to the "anxiety/agoraphobia", you might consider that smoking marijuana might even exaggerate your condition so paranoid or not, it seems to me you should see a Professional of some kind.

    It's easy enough if you have a genuine condition.
    It, unfortunately, it also relatively easy if your just looking for a way to circumvent the law.
    Most of us here try and discourage the latter as it puts legitimate medical patients in need, at risk.

    Good luck...

    It's not that difficult to get a doctor's recommendation. And it doesn't cost $500, it's more like $150.

    I got mine from Oakland.
