THIS WEBSITE FACILITATES COMMUNICATION AND COORDINATION WITH A LICENSED HEALTH CARE PROVIDER AND IN CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES FACILITATES DIRECT COMMUNICATION WITH THE SAME. IT DOES NOT REPLACE YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR PRIMARY LICENSED HEALTH CARE PROVIDER OR OTHER HEALTH CARE SERVICE, AND ICANNAMED DOES NOT PROVIDE MEDICAL ADVICE, RECOMMENDATIONS OF CANNABIS FOR MEDICAL USE, DISTRIBUTION OF CANNABIS IN ANY FORM WHATSOEVER FOR THE PURPOSE OF MEDICAL TREATMENT OR OTHERWISE, CARE, DIAGNOSIS, OR TREATMENT.
Cannabis is currently listed as a Schedule I controlled substance pursuant to the federal Controlled Substances Act. Consequently, possession, distribution, cultivation, and manufacture of cannabis are illegal under federal law. Upon acceptance of this Agreement, you represent and warrant that you understand the varied legal risks associated with your use of cannabis for medical treatment, including arrest and prosecution under applicable federal laws. Should any criminal or civil administrative or legal actions be instituted against you for your use or possession of cannabis for medical treatment as recommended by a Licensed Health Care Provider through icannamed, you will not hold icannamed or any of its Licensed Health Care Providers liable for any loss, injury, or claims of any kind resulting from those actions. You are solely responsible for maintaining a full understanding of the medical cannabis laws in the state in which you reside. Icannamed does not in any way engage in the cultivation, manufacture, distribution, sale, or online sale of cannabis or any cannabis product for medical use or otherwise. Licensed Health Care Providers subscribing to the Site do not in any way engage in the cultivation, manufacture, distribution, sale, or online sale of cannabis or any cannabis product for medical use or otherwise. Neither icannamed nor its Licensed Health Care Providers shall assist you at any time or in any way in the procurement of any cannabis or cannabis product for your consumption, possession, sale or distribution, cultivation, or manufacture of the same for medical use or otherwise. Neither icannamed nor its Licensed Health Care Providers shall procure on your behalf any cannabis or any cannabis product in any form whatsoever for your medical use or otherwise. In order to gain access to and to use the Site, you must demonstrate to the satisfaction of icannamed that you currently reside in the New York State. Only a valid, state-issued, non-expired identification card or driver’s license (collectively “Identification”) shall be sufficient to demonstrate state residency. Upon demonstration of residency in New York through submission to Icannamed of your Identification, Icannamed shall coordinate your initial communication with a Licensed Health Care Provider who practices in New York State. You shall not have any access through Icannamed to any Licensed Health Care Provider who does not practice in New York State. Upon acceptance of this Agreement, you represent and warrant that you understand that there exists a conflict between federal and state law, and, as such, federal regulators
may view any action by Licensed Health Care Providers to prescribe cannabis to you for your medical use as unlawful under federal law. Licensed Health Care Providers are in no way obligated to recommend to you the use of cannabis for your medical treatment. It is in the sole discretion of your Licensed Health Care Provider, through its bona fide Health Care Provider to patient relationship with you and corresponding medical examination or series of examinations to be conducted in accordance with the applicable and governing state laws and regulations of the respective Medical Cannabis State, to determine whether cannabis would be effective as a treatment for your condition(s) (“Patient Recommendation”). Neither icannamed nor its Licensed Health Care Providers make any warranties or guaranties that the use of medical cannabis would be an effective treatment for your medical conditions. Should a Licensed Health Care Provider determine that you have a qualifying condition or that you are undergoing certain medical treatments to justify Patient Recommendation, you bear the sole responsibility of obtaining cannabis for your medical use within the Medical Cannabis State in which you reside. At no time shall you provide cash or any form of remuneration to either icannamed or to your Licensed Health Care Provider specifically or solely for making a Patient Recommendation on your behalf or in exchange for the same; while certain fees shall apply for your medical consultation with a Licensed Health Care Provider, there is no guarantee of a Patient Recommendation of any kind and all such Recommendations are solely within the professional medical judgment and discretion of the Licensed Health Care Provider. This Site is intended for use only by persons who are at least twenty one (21) years of age; if you are under 21 years of age, your parent or legal guardian must accompany and strictly monitor your use of the Site. Licensed Health Care Providers will not make Patient Recommendations on behalf of any individual using the Site who is under the age of 21 unless such Recommendations are made in compliance with the laws and regulations governing.
Icannamed services are only made available to Qualifying Patients that reside in New York State. The Site provides the tools to plan for services, engage remotely, and coordinate such care, if necessary. Icannamed services are subject to state laws and regulations and may change from time to time due to changes in such regulatory requirements.
Your Relationship with Icannamed
If permitted by the respective Medical Cannabis State(s), your Licensed Health Care Provider may use the Site to provide advice or diagnosis to you. Your Licensed Health Care Provider providing such services through the Site may not have the benefit of information that would be obtained by examining you in person and observing your physical condition, in each instance.

You also agree that the opinion expressed by a Licensed Health Care Provider using this Site is not that of icannamed and will not be used in any legal dispute against icannamed, including but not limited to litigation,
arbitration, claim for disability benefits, claim for worker’s compensation and/or malpractice claims.
