Medical Cannabis Patients Continue to Face Stigma in Mainstream Medicine and Struggle for Safe Access
While medical cannabis patients have started to obtain access to safe and regulated products in Massachusetts they continue to face stigma at home, work, school, and within mainstream medical institutions. Cannabis patients facing hospitalization are often discontinued from their normal regimen of medical cannabis because institutions refuse to allow these patients to medicate within their walls. Medical cannabis patients should expect a continuance of care if they're hospitalized or require further assistance in medical facilities.
Even with the passage of adult use, medical cannabis patients struggle to find safe and regulated products. Dispensary access is still severely lacking and product variety remains low.
