Bona Fide Certifications

In April, 2013 two amendments were made to the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act. The state of Michigan’s legislature felt compelled to define what it meant for marijuana patients to have a “bona fide” relationship with their certifying physician. The bona fide relationship’s definition was the key to a successful section 8 immunity defense for medical marijuana patients and the state of Michigan was able to narrow that definition, thus requiring specific components to be required for a patient to have a successful defense in a legal situation regarding marijuana.

What are “bona fide” certifications?

The state of Michigan has defined the bona fide relationship to include two necessary components:

  1. A Medically Sound Environment: Don’t waste your time with doctors who see patients once a week at the local grow store or the head shops that just try to get prospective clients in the door by luring them with a doctor on site. With First Natural’s guidance, you will always receive your certification in a bona fide medical environment.
  2. Follow-Up: Does your doctor have the intent to provide follow up care or are they part of the “sign & drive” crew that travels to random locations handing out certifications to patients they never plan to see again? Prosecutors will use it to their advantage if they can point out a flaw in the certifying physician’s practice.

The First Natural Bona Fide Relationship Philosophy:

  • We’re always here for you! All of the certifying physicians have a permanent, physical location.
  • All certifying physicians have a thorough understanding of the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act and the necessity to provide every patient they certify with a follow-up exam as defined by state law.
  • The Doctor-Patient Team is established once the patient agrees to follow the physician’s cannabis care plan and compile a medical defense for the medical use of marijuana.
  • Rest Easy. Have confidence that your doctor did it right.
