Suffering with erectile dysfunction, low libido, on medicines. History of prostrate removal. Will medical marijuana help?

My husband and i have done some work with a specialist. My husband had his prostate removed 12 years ago. Some problems with erectile dysfunction and desire. Using testosterone , etc. We are going to Hawaii as second honey moon and I am wondering if medical marijuana can be prescribed for short term use at a time like that.

Thanks for your query. Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that your husband may be more than 65 years he has undergone prostate surgery 12 years ago.
It is not uncommon to have decreased libido and not getting hard erection at this age.What you are thinking as a erectile dysfunction may be retrograde ejaculation which is common after Prostate surgery .
He can take phosphodiesterase inhibitors (Sildenafil )after consulting your family Physician .He will guide you about the dosage and timing to be taken and will issue prescription of the drugs.
