What benefits are there in having a Medical Marijuana Card and physician’s Cannabis Certificate or Recommendation?

This can depend on the state, but these are the potential benefits of having a valid physician’s medical cannabis certificate and MMJ card:

  • In medical-only states, it is the only way to consume cannabis legally.
  • In states where recreational cannabis is available, having a medical marijuana card can usually save some money on taxes.
  • Having a medical marijuana card can give you access to a wider range of products and dispensaries.
  • Possession amounts for medical marijuana patients are usually higher.
  • In some states, having a medical card is the only way you are allowed to grow cannabis for yourself, or to grow a greater number of plants.
  • Some states’ medical marijuana cards are seen as valid by other states (reciprocity), meaning it can potentially gain you access to another state’s medical marijuana program.
