Court Rules That Insurance Companies Are Required To Cover Medical Cannabis Treatment

A judge in New Jersey ruled that a man’s insurance company must pay for the cost of his medical cannabis treatment.

   A judge in New Jersey ruled that a man’s insurance company must pay for the cost of his medical cannabis treatment. This may establish an important precedent in the medical industry.
Andrew Watson, who lives in Egg Harbor, New Jersey, enrolled in the state’s medical cannabis program in 2014. He sought financial reimbursement for the purchase of medicinal cannabis over a term of three months.
Watson suffered from chronic neuropathic pain in his left hand. His condition was consistent with New Jersey’s list of qualifying conditions for medical marijuana. He was injured on the job. His initial worker’s compensation claim was denied.
During the hearing, a psychiatrist/neurologist testified on Watson’s behalf. The expert stated that medical marijuana would allow Watson to reduce his prescription opiate use. This would lower risk of addiction and dangerous side effects. The court established that Watson’s cannabis usage is indeed medicinal and that his insurance company should cover his claim.
The presiding judge, Ingrid L. French, stated:

 Opioids Versus Medical Cannabis
Opioids, such as methadone, oxycodone (such as OxyContin®) and hydrocodone (such as Vicodin®), have been responsible for over 183,000 deaths during the last 15 years. Their misuse, abuse and addiction are rampant in the United States. In 2014, almost 2 million Americans abused or were dependent on prescription opioids. On any given day, 1,000 people on the average are treated in emergency situations for the misuse of these drugs.
As of early 2017, medical cannabis is legal in 28 states. More doctors and patient are likely to choose cannabis over mainstream prescription drugs to treat ailments such as pain. Pain management is a perfect contender for cannabis treatment, considering existing pharmaceutical solutions are quite addictive and outright dangerous.
Judge French called Watson’s choice to use medical cannabis as “cautious, mature, and… exceptionally conscientious.” Many believe that medical cannabis can benefit both patients and insurance companies because treatment is less costly than pharmaceutical options.

Well that sounds logical, except for the fact that the insurance Co.s have deals and are in bed with the big pharma boys who don't make shit off of Medical Cannabis compared to their poisen drugs.

Ahhhh Marty,
       I have a medical marijuana card from Ct........I dont use it anymore as the Pharma rats have now taken control of that....But so you know...in Ct, the home of many of the elites, has it all under control.....For starters, they state controls all strains, as they check them every so often to make sure the facilities only have the APPROVED STRAINS.(which means who knows what toxins are in the strains)...As for the people with the cards, we have to pay $150(every year) to register with the doctor, (who know what % the state gets) then you have to pay another $100 to the marijuana facility as a state fee....so before you get a bud, its $250....and you can buy it on the street cheaper..Its $400 an ounce of which I am sure the state get at least 50%...So....will the insurance companies pay....who knows...the insurance companies are in bed with the state, who is in bed with the courts, who is in bed with corporations, who are in bed with the banks.....
