Patient Story Guidelines
Medical Jane is committed to making a difference in the health and well-being of medical cannabis patients. Much is to be learned from those who share their stories and experiences about coping with disease, the effects of treatment tried, reactions and support from family, friends– and the public in general, dealing with emotions, etc. In doing so, you will be doing your part to help motivate others to see the power of cannabis as a medicine. Together, we are building a system of care medical cannabis patients deserve, and the way patients deserve to be treated.
Please read these Guidelines carefully before accessing or using the MMJ Patient Story section. By accessing or using the MMJ Patient Story section, you agree to be bound by all of the terms and conditions below, as well as those in Medical Jane’s Terms of Service.
