After decades resisting the War on Drugs, it seems that marijuana is finally becoming a protagonist of its own story again.
Even though the cannabis plant remains illegal under federal law, 33 American states have legalized marijuana for medical use and 10 states have legalized marijuana for adult use. The District of Columbia legalized marijuana for both medical and recreational use.
As you know, there are many U.S. residents who suffer from disabling medical conditions and need medical marijuana to improve their well- being and life-quality.
The number of legal marijuana patients registered in the U.S. as of May 17, 2018, is of 2,132,777 patients, including DC. There’s a growing tendency in which these numbers are only expected to go up as legalization spreads across the U.S.
And speaking of medical marijuana patients, maybe you’re one of them and has no idea of where to buy your medicinal cannabis. With the view to help you with that, we decided to make this article.
Where to buy your medicinal cannabis?
Patients registered in a medical marijuana program must go to designated places by the state they have their MMJ card, and they are all licensed to operate a marijuana business that provides medical marijuana products to their patients.
These designated places are known as medical marijuana dispensaries. They are regulated stores which are made to give patients a safe place to purchase a get information about medical cannabis.
Medical marijuana dispensaries are often regulated and taxed differently from marijuana retail stores (recreational shops), paying generally fewer taxes and consequently having smaller prices.
It shouldn’t’ come as a surprise that most of the medical marijuana programs in America require that you own a medical marijuana card to enter the dispensary. There are some state’s where out-of-state patients are allowed to enter the store.
Somethings you need to know before walking into a dispensary is that you are likely to get registered in their system. Your medical marijuana purchases may also be tracked down by the marijuana dispensaries in order to help the budtenders (staff member of the marijuana dispensary) find the best products for you.
It will be likely that you may have to wait in the waiting room once you visit a marijuana dispensary. Most of them have a waiting room so that they’re able to control the patient’s flow at the dispensary and to give patients more privacy while contacting the budtenders.
As a matter of fact, these budtenders are often very discreet and respectful with medical marijuana patients. Unless the marijuana dispensary you’re visiting has a terrible staff, of course.
All marijuana dispensaries offer a great variety of medical marijuana products, such as marijuana gummy bears, oils, dry flower, etc. There are also a great variety of marijuana strains and concentrates.
Since the law is different in the states, some places may be forbidden to sell marijuana edibles while in others it may be legal. So, don’t forget to check your states law and see which forms of marijuana are available at your states dispensaries.
