The online process is 100% completed online, fast and patients don't have to pay until the licensed physician has approved their file. Our easy online process is made easy for first time medical marijuana patients with applications usually approved the same day.
WHY GET CANNABIS ID?
Medical patients pay less tax, savings can be $50, $80 per ounce.
California residents under 21 years may buy recreational cannabis at a dispensary, but with Cannabis ID, young adults aged 18 to 21 can buy at any dispensary or legal supplier in the golden state.
Medical patients can access cannabis products that recreational users may not: the strongest, exotic strains, as some counties and cities impose restrictions on recreational users.
LEGAL IMPLICATIONS & ADVANTAGES OF HAVING CANNABIS ID
Federal officers increasingly respect state marijuana laws - and President Trump finally put his foot down pushing the Washington swamp creatures back - so it appears that the Fed is unlikely to harass legal California Medical Marijuana patients into the future. With that said, cannabis ID card does not allow you to consume legally in these as cannabis is still illegal on federal lands and facilities. The fact is that medical card holders are treated with more respect should cannabis use come into play in disputes in: a custody battle, DUI, employer, landlord, spouse, etc.
FOREIGNERS WANT CALIFORNIA CANNABIS ID
There are several reported cases where deportation by Federal officers was avoided because the foreign California resident had Medical Cannabis ID. Under federal law, foreigners that are residents of California can be deported for marijuana related offences and aren't protected by California law, however, if they are residents with a cannabis recommendation from a licensed California physician.
