The rundown of endorsed doctors is open.

Since word got out, Dr. Blum says his telephone has been ringing. It is for the most part individuals who are not his patients.

“I assemble from the telephone calls today that there is a request out there and I don’t envision that I will be one of the doctors will’s identity intrigued by that request.

Dr. Blum has been honing solution for a long time and never envisioned he’d one day be affirming patients for utilization of medical marijuana.

“I don’t think when I initially began that I at any point considered the thought of medical marijuana, however I mean as of late, beyond any doubt.
