All your medication should come from a licensed dispensary that only allows patients with a legit medical marijuana card to make a purchase.
An MMJ card ensures that you not only gain access to a wide variety of cannabis products but also get ones that are properly lab-tested and ensured to be safe for medical use.
With an MMJ card, you are legally allowed to possess, transport, and consume medical marijuana products in the state. No one can question you or impose criminal charges as long as you have a valid medical card.
Even though Pennsylvania does not practice medical marijuana reciprocity, there are plenty of other states such as Massacchusets and Rhode Island that do accept a Medical marijuana card from Pennsylvania.
