I want to get off zoloft & onto medical MJ for anxiety

Is it possible for a doctor in a state in which medial marijuana is not legal to write a prescription for a patient in that same state?

North Carolina resident here. Neighbor upstairs has chronic back pain & several fused vertebrae over 3 separate operations so far. He is afraid of becoming dependent on pain meds, so a friend sends him medical marijuana from a state in which is it legal.
He mentioned his concerns to his doctor who offered to prescribe the marijuana for him.
1) Is that even possible?
2) Would it be possible for me to extract myself from a decade long, low level zoloft prescription for anxiety & begin a prescription for medical marijuana?
I'd rather have immediate control over my dosage than have a build up or drop down lag, and I'm also increasingly annoyed with supporting big pharma.
I'd partake using a vaporizer, like Ploom, not smoking it.
I have smoked MJ before many times, & would like to return to it from a known source rather than whatever flavor happens to be available on the street.
