We Are Unable to Recommend You Medical Marijuana  

The misuse or abuse of alcohol, especially by those under the legal age, is associated with a higher likelihood of obtaining medical cannabis for non-medical or recreational use.  Of note, the simultaneous use of alcohol and marijuana is associated with greater harms than using either substance alone.

Given that you have stated that you drink socially even though you are under the legal age for drinking alcohol, the “risk taking behavior” is a concerning issue. Therefore, a physician’s recommendation for cannabis cannot be provided to you at this time.
