Getting a medical marijuana recommendation still makes sense because it comes with several privileges that recreational users don’t have. For instance, medical cannabis proves to be cheaper than recreational cannabis because of tax reductions.
The possession limits differ for both. Where medical users can purchase and possess up to 8 ounces of cannabis in a day, recreational users can only carry an ounce. Not just that, medical users get access to more variety and quality of strains than recreational users. So, yes even though recreational cannabis is legal, if you have a medical marijuana condition getting an MMJ card is your best bet.
