The DEA has released their findings that marijuana does not have any medicinal value. Patients considering plastic surgery should be prepared to disclose all medications that are being taken. Dr. O’Toole uses a medical history intake form to assess the medical history of patients. Many drugs including supplements and over-the-counter products are omitted by patients. Patients who are using marijuana whether it is medicinal for recreational should disclose that information on the medical intake form. The best way to ensure patients safety is to be sure of a person’s state of health. It does not matter if the procedure is one of the more popular shorter procedures like breast augmentation or gynecomastia or longer more invasive procedures like abdominoplasty. Patients must take every procedure and drug interactions seriously. According to The Los Angeles Times the decision by the DEA comes almost nine years after medical marijuana supporters asked the government to reclassify cannabis to take into account a growing body of research that shows its effectiveness in treating certain diseases. Marijuana has been approved by California, many other states and the nation’s capital to treat a range of illnesses, but in a decision announced Friday the federal government ruled that it has no accepted medical use and should remain classified as a highly dangerous drug like heroin.
The decision comes almost nine years after medical marijuana supporters asked the government to reclassify cannabis to take into account a growing body of worldwide research that shows its effectiveness in treating certain diseases, such as glaucoma and multiple sclerosis.
