Benefits of Having a Medical Cannabis Card
Guaranteed Savings Across the State
A medical cannabis card allows you to bypass many high state and local taxes. Cardholders can enjoy exemption from sales and use tax on cannabis. Additionally, registered medical patients can shop for cannabis at special discounts from state dispensaries. The total savings can be as high as 35% in some states like California.
Get extra legal protection, especially when driving or flying with medical cannabis. It is afforded only to patients that are approved for medical cannabis use by licensed doctors.
Range of Products
Unlike adult use cannabis, medical marijuana does not have a potency limit. Qualified individuals can purchase high THC and CBD cannabis edibles, tinctures, oils, and other potent cannabis products for their medical condition.
Higher Grow, Purchase, and Carry Limits
The possession limit for medical users is 8 ounces which is 8 times the limit for recreational cannabis. All certified MMJ patients can cultivate up to 100 square feet of medical cannabis for personal use.
Increased Access in Your State and Beyond
There are more than 9000 dispensaries in the US that are open to consumers. Cardholders can access all recreational and medical only dispensaries within their respective states and enjoy more price options, locations, strains, products options, etc.
In the state of California, recreational cannabis is available only to people above the age of 21. Patients with a valid cannabis card can buy and use cannabis at 18 years, or even younger with a parent as a caregiver.

Your Medical Marijuana Evaluation Includes
Qualifying Conditions For a Medical Cannabis Card In California
California is one of the most exhaustive lists of qualifying conditions. I say exhaustive in the sense that it is very open-ended and that it is pretty easy to qualify for a medical cannabis card.
The most common qualifying conditions for a Medical weed Card In California include HIV/AIDS, Anorexia, Arthritis, Cancer, Side-effects of chemotherapy, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Radiation Therapy Side effects, Cachexia, Chronic Pain, Glaucoma, Migraine, Severe Nausea, Spasticity, Persistent Muscle Spasms including the one’s associated with multiple sclerosis, Seizures including but not limited to the one’s associated with epilepsy.
The liberal part of the state’s qualifying conditions is due to the arbitrary nature of this list. These conditions will get you a medical cannabis card but you can also get an MMJ card if:
- Your condition is not alleviated then you may suffer from severe discomfort and harm the patient’s mental and physical health.
- It limits a person’s ability to conduct significant life functions as mentioned in the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.
If you still have any questions regarding the qualifying conditions of the state of California, you can have a look at California Proposition 215, along with the revised Senate Bill 420. Marijuana has quickly evolved to become a lifeline for a large number of people and there is a lot that we still don’t understand about it. In California, the last call is that of your physician. If they feel that your condition will benefit from the addition of medical marijuana then irrespective of the condition you will receive a medical marijuana recommendation.
Does California Practice Medical Marijuana Reciprocity?
Well, the simple answer to that would be yes/no. But legislation is seldom that straightforward. Arizona, Hawaii, Maine, Nevada, New Hampshire, Michigan, and Rhode Island all recognize a valid, in-date MMJ card that has been issued in California.
Entering into another state’s dispensary is completely at the discretion of the dispensary of the state in question.
Now, to the second part of whether or not California recognizes medical marijuana cards from other states as valid, the answer would be a stringent no. You cannot get an out of state card and make a medical purchase in California.
Reciprocity is an important benefit for medical marijuana patients if they are making a trip to any of the states listed above. But if you are traveling to California from one of these states you will be buying marijuana as a recreational consumer.
Limitations of a Medical Marijuana Card In California
There are certain things that one needs to take care of even with a medical cannabis card in California. California’s Medicinal and Adult-Use Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act (MAUCRSA) does not provide patients with employment or tenancy rights. This implies that if an employer decides to fire or not hire a person based on the fact that they use cannabis for any purpose, you cannot take legal action against them. It is completely at the discretion of the employer of the decision they make.
Federal employees and those who hold a commercial driving license are also barred from holding a medical 420 card owing to the nature of their jobs. Another right you lose as medical marijuana use is the right to bear arms. This has led to the development of sanctuary cities where people use cannabis while retaining their second amendment rights.

How to Buy More Marijuana at the Dispensary?
Every state has set a limit to buying marijuana. In California, recreational users can buy up to 1 ounce of marijuana, while the purchase limit for medical marijuana users is up to 8 ounces. The purchase limit will vary from one state to another. If 1 you wish to buy more marijuana, consult a medical professional to get qualified for a medical cannabis card and become a legal medical marijuana user. This way, you can enjoy exclusive benefits including a higher purchase limit.
How to Legally Carry and Possess More Marijuana?
You can legally carry and posses more marijuana by getting a legit medical marijuana card provided the amount in your possession is less than the legal possession amount in your state.
Recreational users are allowed to possess up to 1 ounce of marijuana in most states. In states with no set laws for recreational use, carrying marijuana can be a punishable felony.
In comparison, the carry and possession limit is higher for medical marijuana users. Additionally, they enjoy leverage from legal persecution when carrying cannabis as long as they have a legit recommendation from a doctor.
How to Travel With Marijuana Across State Borders?
You cannot travel with marijuana across state borders. However, if you are traveling to a state that has a dedicated medical marijuana reciprocity program, you may be able to purchase and possess marijuana as a non-resident medical marijuana patient with your MMJ card.
