Medical marijuana dispensary

If you live in one of the states that have legalized the use of marijuana for medical uses, you probably have one important question to ask;  how to get medical marijuana.  The good news is that you do not have to go to some dealer who works out of a dark alley.  The sale of medical marijuana is done in a much safer and cleaner environment.

The doctors and dispensaries that deal with medical marijuana have to follow a set of regulations that the state has put in place.  If they do not abide by their law, the license they have to dispense medical marijuana can be withdrawn.

The process to get the medical marijuana requires a few different steps.  It is a process that you will have to go through to obtain the marijuana legally.

Step 1. You will have to see a medical marijuana doctor to get a prescription.  Not everyone can receive medical marijuana.  You must suffer from a disease or condition that medical marijuana can help with.  A doctor’s examination is required to make sure that you need and will benefit from the use of medical marijuana.

There are many doctors that are known as medical marijuana doctors.  They operate in the states that have legalized the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes.  If your current physician does not give out prescriptions for medical marijuana, there are many directories on the internet that can help you find a medical marijuana doctor that will do this.  The doctor who provides the prescription will also give you an ID card that will be used to purchase the marijuana and show you how to get medical marijuana.

Step 2. You have to find a cannabis dispensary to purchase your marijuana from.   These dispensaries are legitimate businesses.  They pay taxes on the marijuana they sell and are subject to all of the local business and health codes that are relative to their business.  These dispensaries have to keep accurate records of who they sell the marijuana to and how much money they collect for the sales.

At the present time, medical marijuana will not be covered by health insurance plans. As medical marijuana becomes legalized in more places, the coverage by insurance companies may change.  It is definitely something that the people who use this product need to be aware of.

If you do not want to go to a dispensary to buy your medical marijuana, you can grow your own.  The laws that have been put in place allow a person to grow marijuana plants for their own personal use.  They commonly allow an individual to grow up to 6 plants at a time.  You still have to have the prescription and ID card.  This allows you to buy the marijuana seeds you need to grow the plants.  It’s not very hard to get if you know how to get medical marijuana.
