DC and Maryland both have active medical marijuana programs! To get access to the dispensaries, you MUST live in either DC or Maryland. Maryland patients have access to dispensaries in both regions, but DC patients are limited to the city’s own five dispensaries. Medical marijuana is available NOW, so your Gentleman has partnered with Veriheal to get you signed up! Veriheal isn’t limited solely to Maryland and DC, by the by, they also help patients in Maine, Massachusetts, New York, and Pennsylvania get medical cards for their state’s programs. Nice!
The qualifying conditions for medical marijuana access in Maryland are:
“If the patient has a chronic or debilitating disease or medical condition that causes: cachexia, anorexia, wating syndrome, severe or chronic pain, severe nausea, seizures, severe or persistent muscle spasms, glaucoma, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), or another chronic medical condition which is severe and for which other treatments have been ineffective.” (from the MMCC Patient FAQ)
DC residents can get a medical marijuana card for any condition whatsoever, which is awesome, cuz medical cannabis can help with a lot of different symptoms that aren’t always covered under other state’s laws.
Maryland residents don’t need a card but you can buy one for $50 if you want. I’m not talking about signing up for the program- you still have to do that- but getting an actual, physical card that says you’re a patient is OPTIONAL. It’s a good idea, though, as it’ll alleviate the need to carry your written certification into some dispensaries and couldn’t hurt to have on you if you get stopped by the police with medical marijuana. Veriheal charges $200 and is one of the most expedient methods of obtaining the physician’s certification that you’ll need- which doesn’t necessarily need to be a doctor!
VERIHEAL IS HIPAA COMPLIANT! That means you can rest easy, baby bear, all your personal information is safe and sound. So what are you waiting for? Book your appointment at Veriheal today!
BUT I HAVE MORE QUESTIONS!
Ok, Sparky, calm down.
