Marijuana is illegal under the US federal law, however there are several states in the US alone with some countries that have legalized Marijuana because of its medical properties. It has been found that Marijuana is good to treat certain chronic pain and diseases that are not treated by conventional treatment options. But if you are going to consume Marijuana for medical reasons, known as Medical Marijuana, you need to have Medical Marijuana card. Here are the ways in which you can get a Medical Marijuana card:
The cost of Medical Marijuana card is more than $100 and you should apply for the one in your country. If Marijuana is legal in your state, you can get it fairly easily.
Your doctor has to write a recommendation that you need to use Marijuana for medical use.
Contact The Hemp and Cannibis Foundation (http://www.thc-foundation.org/) if you aren’t able to get a recommendation from your doctor. The foundation has Marijuana clinics in many states where medical marijuana use is legal and they will help you get in touch with one of their doctors. You can also get the recommendation of a doctor outside your country.
You need to know that you have to reside within that country to get the Medical Marijuana card. They will also ask you for proof of residence.
You may get these cards in dispensaries too but it is not advisable because they are often raided. If you go through the proper way, it is always better.
Make sure you get the card only from credible authorities. Also find out if it is legal in your state to take the card.
