The Noran Clinic affirms its goal of providing state of the art medical care for all neurological conditions. We aim to provide our patients with treatments that are scientifically proven to be safe and therapeutically effective.
- Marijuana has not been adequately studied according to federal standards. Therefore, its benefits and risks are still not scientifically proven by sound research. We view it like any other medicine under development.
- Under the MN medical marijuana program, the treating provider will not have any control over the dosage and active ingredients (THC vs CBD) of the substance to be dispensed. Instead, the Cannabis Patient Centers will be making these important clinical decisions without input from the provider.
- Medical marijuana will not be covered by any health insurance plans. We do not want to create additional expenses for our patients until we better understand its safety and health benefits.
Because of these reasons, the Noran Clinic will not be participating in the state medical marijuana program at this time.
