Welcome to HCM.
If a doctor has prescribed Marijuana, then he knows the risk involved and still considers it necessary, then you have no other choice.
I hope your doctor is aware that you are suffering from congestive heart failure (CHF).
CHF is quite a big problem and needs regular treatment with drugs as well as regular follow up.
