How do I set up an appointment?

Setting up an appointment is simple. You can book online after signing up as a member of CirrusMED here.

How can I obtain my medical records?
Call your physician or the hospital where you have been treated and tell them you want copies of your medical records. They will tell you the process and typically have you sign an authorization to fax to them.

What medical documentation should I bring?
It is important for you to bring any medical documentation that supports your diagnosis. This includes recent medical records, prescriptions, physician’s notes, MRIs or any other documentation that you think can help.

What if I cannot retrieve my medical records?
Our staff will assist you in retrieving your records.

Do you accept insurance?
Currently there are not any medical marijuana doctors in the Nevada that accept insurance.

Will my name be on a state or federal list?
We consider your privacy the utmost importance and follow HIPAA guidelines to ensure patient privacy. You will only be registered with the Nevada State Health Division.

Caregivers: As a patient, you and your designated primary caregiver are allowed to produce marijuana. You are only allowed one primary caregiver at a time. Your caregiver must be at least 18 years old, have significant responsibility for managing your well-being, and be officially designated as your primary caregiver. If you want a designated caregiver, make sure to request a caregiver packet when you request an application from the Division of Health.

Consumption: The medical marijuana law does not protect a patient who uses their medicine while driving or operating a boat. Nor does the law allow you to medicate in any place exposed to public view. Be safe, and if possible, use your medicine in the safety of your own home.

Age Limits: If you or a patient you are inquiring about is a minor, then you should include a request for a minor release in your request for an application from the Division of Health. A patient under the age of 18 must have a signed statement from his or her parent or legal guardian saying that the parent will be the patient’s designated primary caregiver and agrees to control the acquisition of medicine, the dosage, and frequency of use.

Housing: The Nevada medical marijuana law does not specifically address whether or not you can be evicted because you are a patient with an ID. Nothing in the Nevada law specifically addresses whether or not a person can be a patient and live in subsidized housing. If you live in housing funded by the Federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Nevada law will not protect you and you may be subject to eviction because medical marijuana is not protected under federal law. Nevada’s medical marijuana law states that no correctional facility, including a county jail, state prison, or juvenile detention center, is required to accommodate a medical marijuana patient.

Confidentiality: The list of patients with IDs is confidential and not subject to subpoena, discovery, or inspection by the general public.

Reciprocity Nevada does not have a reciprocity program with other states which allow people to become medical marijuana patients. If you do not have a Nevada patient ID you will not be protected from prosecution under Nevada law. The Nevada medical necessity defense should still apply to an out of state patient, but be careful. Avoid traveling in Nevada with your medicine if you are an out of state patient.  The risk of having your medicine taken and facing possession charges in Nevada is not worth it, even if you might ultimately beat the rap with a medical necessity defense.

Medical Marijuana Treats Symptoms of Many Medical Conditions

History

 Since the passage of Ballot Question 9 in November 2000, people in Las Vegas and Nevada with serious medical conditions have been able to use medicinal marijuana legally. These conditions include cancer, arthritis, HIV/AIDS, glaucoma, chronic pain, anorexia, migraine headaches, spasticity, glaucoma and any other illness for which marijuana provides relief.

Alternatives

Patients suffering from these and other conditions may have intolerable side effects to medications or no improvement from conventional treatment. Other patients worry about the addictive nature and negative long-term effects of their current medications and are looking for a natural alternative. Marijuana has helped hundreds of thousands of patients and can help you too.

Knowledgeable doctors at CirrusMED can help you decide if medicinal marijuana is right for you. Our telemedicine /online platform provides a safe and supportive environment that is designed to give you the most positive experience. We believe that you should have the right to choose the best medication for your condition.

Medical Studies

 In a 2002 review of many peer-reviewed medical journals, medical marijuana was shown to have established effects in the treatment of nausea, vomiting, premenstrual syndrome, unintentional weight loss and lack of appetite. Other relatively well-confirmed effects were in the treatment of spasticity, painful conditions (especially neurogenic pain), movement disorders, asthma and glaucoma.

 Organic Treatment Preliminary findings indicate that cannabis-based drugs could prove useful in treating inflammatory bowel disease (consisting of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis), migraines, fibromyalgia and other related conditions. Medical cannabis has also been found to relieve certain symptoms of multiple sclerosis and spinal cord injuries by exhibiting antispasmodic and muscle-relaxant properties. Clinical trials provide evidence that THC reduces motor and vocal tics of Tourette syndrome and related behavioral problems such as obsessive-compulsive disorders.

 Extended Results:  Other studies have shown cannabis or cannabinoids may be useful in treating alcohol abuse, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, collagen-induced arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, atherosclerosis, autism, bipolar disorder, childhood mental disorders, colorectal cancer, depression, diabetic retinopathy, dystonia, epilepsy, digestive diseases, gliomas, Hepatitis C, hypertension, urinary incontinence, leukemia, skin tumors, morning sickness, Parkinson’s disease, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), sickle-cell disease, sleep apnea, tourette syndrome and anorexia.

Once the Nevada State Health Division admits you into the Nevada Medical Marijuana Program, and as long as you abide by their strict guidelines (discussed in later questions), then neither you nor your caregiver can be prosecuted in Nevada for marijuana possession, cultivation, trafficking, possession of paraphernalia, or aiding and abetting with the possession and production of marijuana. However, if you or your caregiver ever strays from these guidelines, then you may be prosecuted for possession and related crimes. (NRS 453A.200)
Furthermore, being admitted into the Nevada Medical Marijuana Program doesn’t diminish your responsibility to follow public health and safety laws: You may never sail, fly or drive under the influence of medical marijuana, you may never possess a firearm in public under the influence of medical marijuana; and you may not even go on an amusement park ride if you’re under the influence of medical marijuana. (NRS 484.379, 488.400, NRS 493.130, NRS 202.257, NRS 455B.080)

Cirrus Medical Network, LLC (CirrusMED) is not a dispensary. We do not advise anyone on how to obtain or produce medical marijuana. We only help legal residents of Nevada (with a valid Nevada ID/Driver License as proof of residency) apply for the Nevada medical marijuana program.

How does the Nevada Medical Marijuana Program work?
This license allows you to grow 14 plants and possess 1 oz 24/7 without being arrested. After our physician has determined your eligibility for medical marijuana, (if you have a qualifying medical condition) you will receive a 90 day temporary recommendation and online patient verification number before you leave our office.

Can state or local police arrest me for using medical marijuana in Las Vegas, Nevada?

Once the Nevada State Health Division admits you into the Nevada Medical Marijuana Program, and as long as you abide by their strict guidelines (discussed in later questions), then neither you nor your caregiver can be prosecuted in Nevada for marijuana possession, cultivation, trafficking, possession of paraphernalia, or aiding and abetting with the possession and production of marijuana. However, if you or your caregiver ever strays from these guidelines, then you may be prosecuted for possession and related crimes. (NRS 453A.200)

(NRS 484.379, 488.400, NRS 493.130, NRS 202.257, NRS 455B.080)

Can federal authorities arrest me for using medical marijuana in Las Vegas, Nevada?

Yes, but chances are the feds will not come after you. Although the federal government still fails to recognize the legality of medical marijuana programs and may therefore arrest you for possessing medical marijuana in Nevada, no cardholding member of the Nevada Medical Marijuana Program has been arrested yet!

Currently, the Drug Enforcement Administration is focusing its efforts on large-scale drug traffickers, not individuals and their caregivers licensed by their state to use medical marijuana. So as long as the state of Nevada has granted you the right to use medical marijuana, you probably won’t face federal prosecution.

How do I apply to use medical marijuana in Nevada?

First, go to the Nevada Division of Health and Human Services website and complete the necessary paperwork. You MUST do this first. You will be asked to submit your physician attestation form to your CirrusMED physician. You must fill out the top portion. Then you may set up a medical evaluation from a CirrusMED physician by signing up here.

.

Do I need a physician to apply to the Nevada Medical Marijuana Program. If so, can the program recommend one to me?
Yes, you need a physician licensed in the state of Nevada to recommend you for the Nevada Medical Marijuana Program and to sign off on your application. The Nevada State Health Division does not make any medical assessments with regard to your application: Only a physician makes the determination whether you suffer from a disease protected under the Nevada Medical Marijuana Program. CirrusMED physicians are licensed in Nevada. Sign up for the CirrusMED Medical Marijuana Evaluation package, which includes one month our Standard PCP membership.
What medical conditions qualify me for the Nevada Medical Marijuana Program?

As long as you follow the application procedure for the Nevada Medical Marijuana Program, you will almost definitely be granted membership if your physician finds that you suffer from one or more of the following medical conditions:

  • AIDS
  • Cancer
  • Glaucoma
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Epilepsy
  • Any condition that causes muscle spasms, seizures, severe nausea, severe pain, or cachexia (disease-caused weight loss and malnutrition)

If your medical condition is not listed above but you believe it deserves protection under the Nevada Medical Marijuana Program, you may petition Nevada’s Department of Health and Human Services by filling out and sending in a form.  (NRS 453A.050)

May I have a caregiver to help administer my medical marijuana in Las Vegas, Nevada?
Yes. Each member of the Nevada Medical Marijuana Program can designate one (1) and only one primary caregiver to help administer the medical marijuana.
Who can qualify as my designated primary caregiver for the Nevada Medical Marijuana Program?
Your designated primary caregiver can be anybody over the age of eighteen (18) and approved by your physician. However, the designated primary caregiver cannot also be a medical marijuana user. And the designated primary caregiver may have only one (1) medical marijuana patient. (NRS 453A.080, NAC 453A.150)
What if I don’t have the money to apply to the Nevada Medical Marijuana Program?
Unfortunately, the Nevada State Health Division won’t waive your application fee if you can’t afford it, and most health insurance companies won’t cover it.
May I use medical marijuana in Las Vegas, Nevada, while I’m waiting to hear whether my application to the Nevada Medical Marijuana Program has been approved?
Once the Nevada State Health Division receives your application and determines it’s complete, you will receive a temporary approval letter good for thirty (30) days. The letter allows you to possess medical marijuana in compliance with the program’s guidelines pending final approval. If law enforcement questions your right to possess the marijuana, present them with a copy of your application and temporary approval letter. (NRS 453A.210)
If I’m approved for the Nevada Medical Marijuana Program, is it good for life?
No. If you are accepted into the Nevada Medical Marijuana Program, your membership lasts only one (1) year. If you think you’ll still require medical marijuana for longer than a year, you should reapply before the year is up. You go through the same application procedure as before, except that you don’t need to resubmit fingerprints. (NAC 453A.130) DrReefer will guide you through the renewal process.
Why would my application to the Nevada Medical Marijuana Program be denied?

The most common grounds for the Nevada State Health Division to deny you membership into the Nevada Medical Marijuana Program are the following:

  • Providing false or incomplete information on your application
  • Not providing proof of your qualifying medical condition
  • Not providing proof that you’ve consulted with your physician about using medical marijuana
  • If the physician backing your application is not licensed or not in good standing
  • If you are under eighteen (18) years old and your parent or guardian did not sign the required statement for your application
  • If you or your designated primary caregiver has ever been convicted of selling drugs
  • If you or your designated primary caregiver has ever possessed drugs in jail or delivered drugs to someone in jail
  • If you’ve failed to follow any other regulations mandated by the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services
  • If the Nevada State Health Division has ever previously prohibited you from ever obtaining a Registry Identification Card.
If my application to the Nevada Medical Marijuana Program is denied, may I reapply?

If your application to Nevada’s Medical Marijuana Program is denied, you may reapply after six (6) months have passed since the date you were denied. But if your application was denied solely because it was incomplete, you may reapply right away. (NRS 453A.210)

If you are accepted into the Nevada Medical Marijuana Program but your membership is revoked, then you may not reapply for another twelve (12) months. (NRS 453A.225)

If I’m accepted into the Nevada Medical Marijuana Program, what are my costs?
It will cost $50 to order your application. Next, you will have to be evaluated by our Doctor, which is $69 through Cirrus Medical Network, LLC (CirrusMED). You will have to be Fingerprinted, which costs $25. $10 for Notary. The cost to register with the Nevada State Health Division is $150.00. Finally, you will have to pay the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles for your Registry Identification Card, which may cost up to $22.
If I’m accepted into the Nevada Medical Marijuana Program, how do I obtain medical marijuana? Can I get a prescription?
Gaining membership into the Nevada Medical Marijuana Program is a lot more straightforward than gaining access to the medical marijuana itself. Strangely, even though the Nevada State Health Division can approve your use of medical marijuana, they may not tell you how to get any. And since marijuana is still considered illegal in the most of the United States, no physician can prescribe it to you (even the physician who recommended that you take it in the first place), nor can any pharmacist fill a prescription for you. Cirrus Medical Network, LLC (CirrusMED) is not a dispensary. We do not advise anyone on how to obtain or produce medical marijuana. We only help legal residents of Nevada (with a valid Nevada ID/Driver License as proof of residency) apply for the Nevada medical marijuana program.
How much marijuana does Nevada’s Medical Marijuana Program entitle me to possess?

If you are accepted into the Nevada Medical Marijuana Program, you and your designated primary caregiver (if you have one) may possess up to one ounce (1 oz.) of usable marijuana total–you cannot each possess an ounce of marijuana. (NRS 453A.200) Usable marijuana usually refers to seeds, dried leaves and buds, or any kind that’s immediately ready to be smoked. Usable marijuana does not include the stalks and roots of the plant. (NRS 453A.160)

In addition to the ounce of usable marijuana, you and your caregiver may together possess up to three (3) mature marijuana plants and up to four (4) immature marijuana plants. (NRS 453A.200) Mature marijuana plants are blooming, whereby its flowers or buds may be seen without visual aid. Immature marijuana plants are not yet blooming. (NAC 453A.080)
