Most pain contracts have the condition that you are not to smoke pot. If you do and it is detected in the urine, he could discharge you or he may counsel you and give you another chance depending on the Drs policy. It can be grounds for dismissal from his practice or at least bar you from receiving opioid pain meds. You are entitled to a copy of your pain contract AND any toxicology reports done on you. You may have to sign a release form but if you request them, they should give you a copy. When you told him that you smoked pot, did he counsel you not to combine pot and pain meds? If he did, he has counseled you once and would be within his rights to discharge you or to just not provide opioid therapy if your contract says using opioids and smoking pot are not to be used together. He could discharge you cold turkey and be within his rights.
