IS THERE A MED GAP?

An editorial in STAT argues MED access is the newest health care disparity.

  • Dr. Julia Arnsten, an internist in the Bronx and a registered New York MED doctor writes that due to high prices and inconveniently located dispensaries: “Some of my patients skip the licensed dispensaries and buy cheaper, more readily available street marijuana through unregulated sources. Purchasing street marijuana is not only illegal, but it also means that I do not know exactly what patients have purchased, how they are using it, or how it may affect their health.”
