I go to a military hospital they can't prescived it. I Dr in a civilian hospital prescribed it. My question is what effects is marijuana on my kidneys.?

Sorry, but I can't answer your question. I would talk to the center that follows your transplant and see what they think. I don't believe that the chemicals from medical marijuana are cleared by the kidneys, but I could be wrong.

Best of luck.
