District of Columbia Medical Marijuana Card

Amendment Act B18-622, AKA the “Legalization of Marijuana for Medical Treatment Amendment Act of 2010“, establishes a medical marijuana program to “regulate the manufacture, cultivation, distribution, dispensing, purchase, delivery, sale, possession, and administration of medical marijuana and the manufacture, possession, purchase, sale, and use of paraphernalia. The Program shall be administered by the Mayor. The law requires that all medical marijuana patients MUST register with the District of Columbia Department of Health and receive a medical marijuana card, otherwise known as a cannabis card or pot card.

Obtaining your Washington DC marijuana card will open up a lot of opportunities for you to receive specialized treatment with medical cannabis. It’ll also provide legal protection for you to purchase your medicine from a licensed provider and enable you to grow a certain amount at home. That is why you should allow MarijuanaDoctors.com to help you get your marijuana ID card and enjoy the benefits.
