What is Medical Marijuana Card

Medical marijuana card is an identification card used by patients to purchase medical marijuana legally to treat their mental or physical illness. It also allows the patient to work as a caregiver.

The patient must get a signed letter from a registered medical health professional. That letter states that the patient is experiencing mental illness, and medical marijuana would be an effective treatment option. The patient needs to apply through the state authority and pay a fee, which will also vary according to the state.

The process of getting a medical card depends on the specific state’s laws and policies. As cannabis legalization expands, the rules and regulations for patients continue to evolve, especially with more states legalizing adult use of cannabis.

In most states, the card is valid for up to 12 months and renewed after the expiry. It usually needs another recommendation letter from the doctor, and you need to pay the card fee again, which costs less than the first registration.

Benefits of Medical Marijuana Card

Straight-forward Process

Adults can only possess up to an ounce of cannabis for recreational purposes. At the same time,  Card holders can possess more. By having an MMJ card, you can bring more marijuana from the weed dispensary than someone purchasing recreationally.

Extended Buy Limits

There are strict laws on how much cannabis adults can buy for recreational purposes. But these laws do not apply to someone with a valid weed card. A person with an MMJ card can buy marijuana in advance and allows to purchase up to 30 days’ quantity of medical cannabis.

Exception On Age Restriction

In the US, most states restrict the use of recreational use of marijuana to adults who are 21 or older. Cannabis consumption and possession remain illegal for people below 18 years of age. However, most medical cannabis programs allow younger patients under 18 to access marijuana.

Access To High-Quality Medical Marijuana

Medical marijuana patients have access to high-quality medical marijuana compared to the marijuana sold for recreational purposes. For recreational purposes, weed dispensaries adhere to specific potency limits as directed by their state. Some medical patients may require high quality or more potency to alleviate the medical condition they are looking to manage using cannabis.

Lower Price

A weed card saves you money and gets you lower prices than those who access it for recreational purposes. Many US states have either lowered or exempted taxes on marijuana purchased with a mmj card. Recreational customers pay excise taxes anywhere from 15-37%, depending on your state, while cardholders have to pay only standard taxes.

Legal Protection

Many states exempt patients and caregivers who possess or cultivate marijuana for the medical purpose recommended by a licensed healthcare professional from criminal laws which otherwise prohibit cultivation or possession of marijuana. Moreover, some states have laws protecting marijuana users’ employment rights.
