Will Medical Marijuana Affect My Social Security Disability Case?

While every fact scenario is different and should be analyzed on an individual basis, it is advisable to consult with an attorney experienced in these matters and to have medical evidence in your file to support the use of marijuana. These efforts will impact the claimant’s credibility, which is very important before the decision-maker on a person’s application for Social Security Disability benefits.

  1. Great video, thank you! I'm a recreational user who just paid to get my medical card. I had brain tumor that impacted my whole body, it twisted & bent my spine and herniated most of my disc's. I also tried to jump out of moving vehicles and would forget how to get home from work. Once the brain tumor was out, I no longer have the illness but I am disabled. I also have a laundry list of mental disorders from mental and physical abuse (I was raised in a cult, constant death threats from school bullies but I had to "turn the other cheek") and having such a traumatic disease(Cushing's). I was 365lbs and dying…a dr told me it was impossible to have a brain tumor that causes obesity bc its so rare. The coetisol/adrenalin was about 10x what it should've been. Every single time I don't used cbd or thc I don't sleep and I struggle. With it, I have now lost 135lbs. I am hoping the judge will see just how much I long to get better. I miss my career so much but I have had nothing but complications from pneumonia, blood clot in my eye, cracked teeth, shredded tendon, deformed feet, twisted herniated spine. The list goes on. I just had pelvic and kidney surgeries bc I get chronic abnormal labs and infections. I am only 40 and have been rejected 2x. (I'm a girl too and Cushing's gave me a full beard, I get so Paranoid bc of it🥸😪) I'm really tired of selling everything I own. I'm just so tired 😫

  2. The power structure has always demonized pot smokers. Everyone I've ever encountered denies smoking pot in the face of officialdom. It is never wise to snitch on yourself for any reason. Ever. That said the SSA has been awarding pot smokers benefits since its inception as long as the applicant does not give them a reason to deny benefits. It is well settled that marijuana is illegal under federal law and any legality under state law is not a defense in the federal sphere. Do not open the door to more War On Drugs oppression by snitching yourself off for smoking pot when common sense dictates otherwise.
