Medical marijuana and dispensaries have become a hot topic recently. And, in recent years, several states have enacted laws legalizing medical marijuana in one form or another. While the most renowned is California, states like Montana, Colorado, Alaska, Hawaii, Oregon, Washington, New Jersey and Rhode Island have successfully legalized medical marijuana and have multiple dispensaries serving patients daily. There are even medical marijuana dispensaries in our nation’s capital, Washington, DC.

Even as the state seems to be taking its time while implementing the program, there is light at the end of the tunnel.
