No Medical Marijuana Card Means Breaking the Law
If you are using marijuana without a medical marijuana card, you should know that you are breaking both state and federal laws. If you get caught, you’ll be subject to the harsh penalties that many states impose on illegal marijuana users. Even if you’re using the drug to treat a legitimate disease, you are still breaking the law as long as you don’t have a medical marijuana card approved by a licensed doctor.
The best thing about having a medical marijuana card is that you have full legal protection under your state’s medical marijuana laws. For instance, if you should get pulled over for speeding and a law enforcer asks to search your car, you can permit the search without fear that you will be taken to jail or that your medicine will be confiscated. The law is on your side, but only if you have a medical marijuana card.
With the help of a marijuana doctor in your state, you can obtain a medical marijuana card that permits you to purchase the substance from a registered dispensary. In California, there are over 500 medical marijuana dispensaries to serve you. Some even have private rooms where you can medicate with fellow patients in safety.
