Northampton Medical Marijuana

My name is Jill Griffin and I am a physician practicing in Northampton, Massachusetts. My practice is where I offer house calls by bicycle (and in the office at times).

A recurring question in my practice (both as an Emergency Physician and with is whether or not I will agree to recommend “Medical Marijuana” to my patients.

After much reflection and evaluation of the pros and cons of the Humanitarian Use of Medical Marijuana, I have decided to support it and recommend it to patients that have a genuine need. During my career I have cared for tens of thousands of patients and I have learned that most of my patient’s that use marijuana have a legitimate reason for doing so. Whether it is chronic pain, PTSD, HIV, anxiety, depression, insomnia, spasticity, glaucoma, cancer, fibromyalgia, poor appetite, chronic fatigue or a multitude of other diseases, for some reason, Marijuana seems to help and often has fewer side effects than drugs that I do prescribe on a regular basis.


Dr. Griffin was kind and compassionate during my office visit. She has helped me find a way to eased my symptoms with the use of Cannabis. I am so happy that Pedalmed has a Dr. who cares, and that is knowledgeable and understanding. My life is more manageable now. I owe it to Dr.Griffin. All my other Dr.'s did not take me serious. Dr. Jill Griffin did. If anyone has medical issues that can be managed with Cannabis should see Dr. Jill Griffin. She is no joke.


Hi, My name is Steven Goshea, I am trying to download your request form to become a patient of yours, but I can not download it for some reason. Can you help me out with this, please.
Thank you


Jill Griffin is a very professional physician. She is very nice and is very welcoming in her office. I'm on a ton of medications and thanks to her practice I am able to get off almost all of them. If you have a real issue and think that medical marijuana would help improve your condition I highly recommend her office. Overall great experience!
