Just Because You Can, Doesn't Mean You Should

Louisiana’s medical marijuana program has seen MANY changes over the years. The Healing Clinics, LLC has been providing medical evaluations for patients seeking medical marijuana as an alternative for their debilitating medical condition since the inception of the program in Louisiana.

Louisiana law now allows any physician to write the recommendations for medical marijuana. However, many physicians have questions and concerns about medical marijuana and we hope we can answer some of those questions.
