Switching medical marijuana doctors

We get many questions about switching medical cannabis doctors. You, the patient, have control. You can go to any office / physician that you choose (assuming that doctor can see you).

In your mmuregistry account, there is an easy process (just the click of a button) to release yourself from your prior doctor so another doctor can approve you.

Many patients do this because they have to see a doctor every 7 months. The saving can build up if you see a doctor roughly twice every 14 months. Better to spend the money on medicine!
