Legal with a doctor’s note since 1996, medical marijuana has been proven to relieve symptoms associated with anxiety, arthritis, HIV/AIDS, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, depression, chronic pain, multiple sclerosis, nausea, migraines, fibromyalgia, anorexia, IBS, PMS …. the list goes on and on. Yet patients report many primary physicians still know little about the drug. Even fewer write recommendations for it. So medical marijuana specialists fill the gap. While quality of care varies widely, NorCal Health Care charges reasonable prices for recommendations based on an adequate standard of care. While nothing fancy, the large urban clinic is well known, which is good because many dispensaries won’t take dodgy-looking doctor’s notes. NorCal also offers general medicine prescriptions, acupuncture, and massage therapy. With a great location at Broadway and 19th Street, it’s the people’s weed clinic.
