Doctor urges weed-wary colleagues to prescribe pot, not opioids for pain relief

-week waiting list for medical marijuana has now stretched to 8 months
By Jason Viau, CBC News Posted: Jul 24, 2017 5:00 AM ET Last Updated: Jul 24, 2017 11:33 AM ET

A Windsor, Ont., doctor is urging his weed-wary colleagues to embrace marijuana as a bona fide pain treatment option because he is overwhelmed with patients seeking alternatives to addictive opioids.
Dr. Christopher Blue is also calling on governments and health-care insurers to ensure medical marijuana is covered under benefit programs because the cost will prevent potential patients from turning to it for pain management.
Blue is one of a few local doctors prescribing medical marijuana — other doctors refer patients to him — and a waiting list that was once two weeks has now stretched to eight months.
"Unfortunately, patients are having to wait, but I can't do any more work," said Blue. "I'm physically tapped out."
Marijuana has 'minimal' risks
Dr. Amit Bagga, president of the Essex County Medical Society, agreed the risks associated with marijuana are "minimal" compared to those for addictive opioids. He acknowledged that only "a relatively small number" of local doctors are prescribing marijuana and believes those numbers will grow over time as they become more familiar with the drug.
