    Prescribing Medical Marijuana

    I live in a state that has legalized medical marijuana. I can take a class for a few hundred $ and become licensed to prescribe it. I practice mostly inpatient, but have a part time gig in primary care Anyone has any experience with this? On one hand, I would love to be able to help my patients better, and I see many battling serious pain issues. On the other, I don't want to get a "rep" of "that doc that prescribes weed". I am also concerned that obtaining this license is an invitation for the state to pay closer attention to your practice, inviting more audits and such. Please share your thoughts!

    Toileting Bariatric Patients

    The most recent... A very obese man, and he needed a urinal, but could not reach the area himself (abdomen in the way...). In addition, he either had a "peekaboo" penis or it was hiding somewhere in the layers of fat. So I lift the gown and look... and I see nothing. Nothing that tells me where I should aim. Being that the guy is totally alert, I can't just start poking around looking for it... I almost asked "where is it" but bit my tongue soon enough. I was SO embarrassed.
