Infographic: 3 Easy Steps For Obtaining A Medical Marijuana Card

Recreational cannabis laws are still playing “catch up,” and there are still plenty of creases to be
ironed out. Having a medical marijuana card could potentially save you from the accessibility
hassle, and with Jeff Sessions targeting recreational cannabis for federal prosecution, possibly
a few legal headaches as well. There’s more legal precedence protecting medical marijuana
patients.

“It’s recreationally legal in California now. What do I need a medical marijuana card for?” Well, there are a few good reasons, including:

  • Exemption from sales taxes.
  • Greater accessibility to cannabis – there are more medical marijuana-friendly
    dispensaries than recreational ones at the moment, and not every jurisdiction has
    welcomed the recreational side with open arms.
  • Arguably a greater number of high-quality products to choose from.
  • Potentially greater protection from state laws, both in California and in other states as
    well.
  • Higher possession amounts.
  • You suffer from a condition that merits one, and you want to get rid of the opioids,
    benzodiazepines and barbiturates that are in your medicine cabinet and replace them
    with something that could well be a lot safer.

Getting a medical marijuana card and taking advantage of these benefits is now a lot easier,
thanks to telehealth. All you have to do is go to doctorfrank.com, click on “Get a Rec” and do the
following:

  1. Sign up with your email and password. You’ll then be asked to fill in a questionnaire
    asking what condition you’re hoping cannabis can help you with, any allergies and
    anything else you’d like the physician to know.
  2. You’ll then be put into contact with one of our physicians within a matter of minutes for a
    face-to-face meeting. Please ensure you have a working camera, microphone and
    speakers for the appointment.
  3. Once approved, you’ll be emailed a copy of your recommendation letter, which can be
    used immediately. A hard copy will be sent to your address.

In order to qualify for a medical marijuana card in California, all you need is government-issued,
photographic ID (this doesn’t have to be a Californian one – you can use an official ID such as a
passport or driver’s license from another state) and proof of California residency (e.g.
rental/mortgage agreement, utility bill, bank statement). Medical records can help, but aren’t a
requirement.

And that’s it! You can get your medical marijuana recommendation today, as simple as 1, 2, 3!
