How to Get a Medical Marijuana Card

Posted by Marijuana Doctors on 05/19/2010 in Medical Marijuana

Sixteen states currently have medical marijuana laws that allow patients to use cannabis to alleviate conditions such as cancer, HIV/AIDS, glaucoma and more. But how exactly do you get medical marijuana? It depends on the state. Each state has its own rules and regulations regarding the medicinal use of cannabis.

In order to get medical marijuana, all patients must start by seeing a marijuana doctor that’s registered in their state to obtain a recommendation, which is often referred to casually as a marijuana prescription. From there, some states require patients to register with the state’s registry i.d. program to get a medical marijuana card, others do not. Once you obtain all the necessary paperwork, you may then either grow or purchase your medicine from approved sources. Again, each state has its own guidelines on how much cannabis you can grow, consume, purchase and possess.
