Medical marijuana began being sold this week, but some hospitals are not allowing their doctors to recommend it. Akron Children's is not one of them.
Dr. Sarah Friebert, Director of Palliative Pediatric Care at Akron Children’s, is one of two doctors at the hospital with the license to recommend medical marijuana. She obtained the certificate to help children with very serious or terminal illnesses.
At this time, Friebert is not recommending marijuana as a primary medical therapy. She also says she does not recommend the plant unless parents approach her about it first.
