Getting permission to smoke medical marijuana in California is amazingly easy. Of course, you must first suffer from a medical condition that may be alleviated by consuming cannabis. Like terminal cancer. Or writer’s cramp. Or stuttering. Those are a few of the 198 maladies of varying severity that can respond positively to a dose of medical pot, according to the California-based Marijuana Medicine Evaluation Centers. Take our quiz to see if pot can (supposedly) treat what ails you.

Advisory: This quiz should not be confused with legitimate medical advice. See your doctor to see if pot is really right for you.
