Meanwhile the cost of a medical cannabis recommendation and card is about $50 bucks and there's more.
7 Reasons Why should I have MMJ ID
*Patients save 25% on tax or more. That amounts to several hundred dollars per year savings for the average user. If you consume only one gram of weed per day, in 2018 the tax is about $2.50. That's nearly $30 per week or $120 per month. This savings is enough to go on a cruise by the end year.
*MMJ-ID provides protection from failing drug tests, whenever the employer disallows recreational use, but allows medical use. Also, medical marijuana users sometimes receive a mulligan and are given a warning instead of being straight out fired.
*In divorce or litigation, the opposition may claim you abuse weed, but charges are less likely to stick if the evidence is that you're taking marijuana responsibly for medical reasons.
*If you are stopped by a Federal officer, you can still be busted for pot (somewhat rare), but it happens at airports, parks and federal facilities. Feds tend to be more lenient and let you go without charges if you have valid medical cannabis ID.
*If you are from Canada or Mexico, you can be deported from the country if you possess weed at an airport. Having medical cannabis ID sometimes stops officials from prosecuting you. This is a big deal.
*Medical ID allows access to all dispensaries, not only those set up for recreational sales. Medical customers sometimes get a better deal and service. Some dispensaries save elite strains for their medical customers.
*Some precincts in Nevada accept California Medical Cannabis ID.

Employed at a company that tests for Cannabis
Cannabis is not legal in all states and countries.

However the cost of MMJ ID is negligible and offers effective protection in many cases.

Adult use of cannabis is legal in California under Proposition 64, the Adult Use of Cannabis Act (AUMA), approved by the voters on Nov 8, 2016. In general, AUMA allows adults 21 and over to possess, privately use, and give away up to one ounce of cannabis, and to cultivate no more than six plants for personal use at their residence. It also legalizes the commercial sale, distribution and production of cannabis for adult use at state-licensed facilities beginning January 1, 2018, under terms spelled out in the Medical and Adult Use of Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act approved by the legislature in 2017. City and county governments can restrict or ban cannabis businesses in their jurisdiction.
Cannabis remains legal for medical use by patients of all ages who have a physician's recommendation under California's 1996 medical marijuana law, Proposition 215. Proposition 215 affords somewhat broader rights to possess and cultivate for personal use than AUMA. Prior to AUMA, the sale, production and distribution of medical cannabis by so-called patients' collectives was authorized in loose terms under a law known as SB 420 of 2004. However, SB 420 collectives will be phased out and subsumed in the state regulation and licensing system beginning in 2018.
The Bureau of Cannabis Control in the Dept. of Consumer Affairs is in charge of licensing and regulating retail sales, distribution, and testing; the Dept. of Food and Agriculture is in charge of cultivation; and the Department. of Public Health is in charge of manufacturing. Prior approval by local city or county governments is required for all state-licensed facilities. Further info on state regulations may be found at the California Cannabis Portal.
Regulations - Statutes
If you are not a U.S. citizen, think about whether you should carry your medical cannabis recommendation with you. Reports are that ICE is asking if people have their cards and/or use medical marijuana, and using that as grounds for deportation on grounds that they are in violation of the federal Controlled Substances Act. This means permanent residents, Visa holders, and those who are not naturalized nor are a natural-born citizen.
