    yes im 15 , yes i live in new york
    reason for needing marinol:
    well i am a frequent user of marijuana
    in fact its a medication sometimes more than a recreational drug
    it helps me with my manic depression , anxiety , boredom.
    now what im asking is
    is it legal in NY
    can you get it for my reasons
    ( yes i know there would be some persuading)
    and also i read on the website
    to not smoke marijuana and use marinol ( espeically not at the same time)
    because of such thing as a dranobinal overdose ( spelling?)
    i dont see how that can be true though..
    since its impossible to od from marijuana
    but the symptons they said for a mild od
    was red eyes and other symptoms of smoking weed
    and thena moderate od was urinary problems , mood changes
    but this is just more symptoms of smoking ...
    so anyway give me your ideas and opinions and facts

    Marinol is legal in all 50 states.

    However, it is not FDA approved for any purpose other than reducing nausea in chemotherapy patients, and stimulating appetite in AIDS patients.

    You would need to find a doctor willing to prescribe a "controversial" drug for a so-called "off-label" use. With most docs running scared from the DEA, I would guess you have no chance in hell of this happening...:(
