Steve Lopez visits a medical marijuana doctor… in Glendale

From the Los Angeles Times:

Oooh, there’s a pinch in my lower back.

My head hurts too.

And my vision is blurred from going through long lists of Southern California physicians who specialize in herbal medicine. I need relief, and I need it fast, but how does one go about choosing a medical marijuana doctor?

“I am a person first, a scientist second and a friend always,” a Melrose Avenue doctor says in an ad that can be found in medical cannabis magazines.

I suppose there are advantages to having a medical marijuana doctor who is a friend always. But I wasn’t really looking for a friend.

“Sadly, many of the doctors’ offices in our field are shoddy at best,” said an ad for a clinic in my neighborhood. “They definitely are not something to gamble on.”

Good advice, I guess. In the end, I chose a Glendale clinic because it was close to home, offered “superior professionalism” and had an appointment time that worked for me.
