What are the benefits of having a medical marijuana card in a legal state?

As states across the nation begin to fully legalize adult-use cannabis, many may be wondering how this impacts medical cannabis dispensaries and card holders. What does it mean to be a medical cannabis patient in a world where anyone can walk into a recreational dispensary, present their state ID, and legally purchase cannabis? Is the hassle of visiting a doctor for a medical card still worth it? Are there any real benefits? The answer is yes. There are many real benefits for medical cannabis card holders. From dosage to access and affordability, patients will find plenty of support for their ongoing care on the medical side of cannabis legality.

Lower costs and taxes

A major benefit offered by many states’ medical dispensaries is lower cost for patients, which is extremely important for people who rely on cannabis for medical issues. Imagine needing lifeimproving medication, but not having it covered by your insurance””that is the reality of medical cannabis patients all over the country. Now imagine your medicine was also highly taxed and thus very expensive since it also doubled as a recreational joy for many people””that would be the reality of patients if they only had access to recreational dispensaries. Medical cannabis dispensaries allow concessions for patients that recreational shops do not. An example of this can be seen in Colorado, where medical cannabis patients avoid the 10% retail marijuana tax and 15% excise tax that recreational dispensary costumers must pay. Medical cards allow patients to have access to their medicine for lower cost, making their healthcare more affordable and accessible.

Higher potency limits:

Dosage is extremely important when it comes to medical cannabis, and many patients need
access to high-strength cannabis to alleviate symptoms. However, while recreational shops may have to abide by potency limits, medical dispensaries sometimes have more leeway. For example, in California, recreational dispensaries are limited to 1,000mg of cannabinoids per package of tinctures or lotions. Medical dispensaries however, have a much higher threshold, and are legally permitted to sell tinctures or lotions with up to 2,000mg. These potency limits vary from state to state. Colorado, California, Oregon, and Nevada all allow higher potency for MMJ patients in varying degrees of potency. Washington state law restricts recreational edibles to 10mg per serving. However, some dispensaries offer 25mg edibles for medical patients. Alaska, meanwhile, does not have medical dispensaries despite having a medical program. Patients access cannabis from recreational dispensaries, and currently there are no options for higher potency products for patients.

Cannabis patients under age 21

Recreational shops are permitted to sell cannabis to anyone who is over the age of 21. While this makes sense for the general populous, children who are also cannabis patients wouldn’t have access. Some medical cards allow those who are age 20 and under to legally access the cannabis medicine they need for their healthcare when treating cancer, epilepsy, or other ailments. Drawing a distinction between medical and recreational cannabis is also important in reducing stigmatization of pediatric patients. States with medical cannabis programs typically have laws allowing minors to access medical cannabis with the assistance of a caregiver. The form of cannabis (oils, edibles, etc.), cannabinoids permitted (THC, CBD, etc.), and potency limits vary state to state.

Grow what you need:

While not every medical state allows patients to grow their own medicine, many do. And the amount that one can grow is often higher for medical patients than it is for recreational consumers. In fact, the majority of states with both recreational and medical cannabis laws allow at least some wiggle room for patients to grow additional cannabis as needed. For example, in Oregon, recreational growers are permitted up to four plants, while medical growers are permitted six plants. This is important for patients who, unlike recreational consumers, are dependent on the plant for their wellbeing and can better offset dispensary costs with their own homegrown supply.

Age

Recreational users must be 21 Years of age to consume, whilst Medical card holders have no age limitations as long as they legally hold a medical card.

Potency

Recreational users are limited in potency when purchasing. No more than 10mg THC per serving per edible up to 100 mg or 100 mg per package can be purchased and a Limit of 5 grams of Concentrate per purchase. Medical Card Holders are not limited in potency and are able to purchase any potency or form of consumption.

Taxes

Recreational users will be highly taxed, this tax is called excise tax and it is taxed at 16 percent, including Arizona standard taxes this rate is increased to 24.7% on all cannabis purchases, Medical card holders are not subject to this excise tax.

Cultivation

Medical marijuana patients can grow marijuana under specific rules to include each patient can grow up to 12 plants. Recreational marijuana can be grown by persons 21 or older, but cultivation is regulated to six cannabis plants per individual’s primary residence.

Possession

Medical marijuana patients can possess up to two and a half ounces. Recreational marijuana consumers can possess up to one ounce of marijuana with no more than five grams being concentrates/extracts.

Purchasing

Recreational marijuana consumers will be able to buy up to one ounce (with no more than five grams being concentrates/extracts) per transaction, Medical marijuana patients can purchase up to two and a half ounces every two weeks.

Workplace

Legalization of recreational use does not govern how employers, landlords, and independent agencies handle or carry out their policies. Companies and independent agencies can enforce and deny services based on cannabis consumption. Under 207, employers can discriminate however they want, But they cannot fire someone (with a medical card) for a positive test. They can only take action against them if they are impaired at the workplace or are in possession of medical marijuana in the workplace. Protect yourself legally by having your medical card. Waiting Demand for recreational marijuana will be very high, so most dispensaries will likely create separate lines for medical marijuana patients and recreational consumers to purchase marijuana. In several states that have Medical and Recreational purchasers, the medical patient takes priority.
