Lafayette’s first medical marijuana health clinic opens October 1st

Sept. 25, 2018 — Lafayette, LA: Acadiana now has another way to seek relief from a variety of maladies thanks to the efforts of a local family. Dr. Chad Rossitter, a practicing internal medicine doctor in Acadiana, became interested in the beneficial and helpful aspects of marijuana prescriptions due to his work and due to his family.

I’ve lost family members to the opioid crisis. There is a real need out there for people to get help. Lots of addictions happen because people are in pain. This is a safe, legal way for people to get help for lots of conditions and I want people to know they don’t have to suffer. Some alternatives are not addictive like opioids and help just as much if not more.

Louisiana recognizes 14 conditions as approved for treatment with medical marijuana, among them cancer, glaucoma, Parkinson’s disease, seizures, and PTSD. It is sold in the form of pills, tinctures, and oromucosal sprays.

The staff of Total Health Clinic invites everyone to come by their location at 610 Guilbeau on October 1 for its grand opening at 5pm. Hors-d’oeuvres and drinks offered.
