planning on getting a med card. anyone got tips?
    #439372 - 06/29/10 06:55 PM (6 years, 5 months ago)

ok so i am planning to get my med card in two weeks or so. my medical condition that i plan to use marijuana to help is, insomnia and mild depression/anxiety. i really want the card and want to make sure that my visit will result with me leaving with the card.

i have been prescribed ambien for the insomnia and had some weird side effects so i still have a full bottle. i was also givin clonazapam for anxiety in the past but that was pretty much because i wanted benzos. should i bring the bottles and show the doc as proof?  i dont want him calling my real doc because my mom works in his office and i dont want her finding out she is a total narc.

when the doc gives you the card does it say your condition on it. because i dont want it to say insomnia when a cop pulls me over and i got a fatty in my mouth.

im kinda nervous about this i really could greatly benefit from it for its insomnia purposes. i want to almost guarantee that i walk out with the card

do you guys have any tips or advice that could help me in gaining the card. and also for the depression aspect what should i say. i have had some depression in the past. should i tell him that when i am feeling down smoking weed makes me feel better? because that doesnt sound too great

sorry for making this so long i appreciate your help and advice

Nope it doesn't say the condition on the card.

As far as getting the card I don't think anybody has been turned down, not in Cali anyway. :wink:

I got mine cause I had a sore back 25 years ago. I have a friend who has one for a finger that gets sore once and a while. I wouldn't worry about it. :omgawesome:

You don't need anything but money in california, about $40 for the rec and $200 for the mmic from the health dept
You don't need to really explain your condition to anyone but your mmj doctor..... and if you have a prescription for any medication that medical marijuana is prescribed you don't  have to say shit, just show them the pills and you're on your way. this is all you need to buy weed in cali.
As for other states I have no idea.

Steve Buscemi is a great actor IMO. My friend said that if you do not have a doctor the dispensary will tell which one to go to, not sure if it true because he does not have a card himself. But what Steve has posted sounds like the stuff I have seen online about it, just a matter of money for the most part

Rec = Doctors recommendation (only thing you need to buy weed legally in Cali besides ID)
MMIC = Medical marijuana identification card (obtained from health department)

You need California ID and REC, to go to a dispensary.
MMIC is important to legally grow and avoid law enforcement, it legally protects you from anyone besides the FEDS..... who are now supposed to lay off patients.

Go to the Health dept with your legit recommendation and $150-$300 depending on the county, fill out the forms, pay and wait for the card in the mail.
In California you must be 21 with state ID, real address, and real rec to get a MMIC, marijuana is legal and tolerated for medical use.
Here is the law:

Details

Possession of 28.5 grams or less of marijuana is not an arrestable offense.  As long as the offender can provide sufficient identification and promises to appear in court, the officer will not arrest the offender.  Upon conviction of the misdemeanor charge the offender is subject to a fine of $100.  Possession of greater than 28.5 grams is punishable by up to six months in jail and a fine of up to $500.

Proposition 36
The Substance Abuse and Crime Prevention Act passed by 61% in 2000

Possession of 28.5 grams or less of marijuana on school grounds when the school is open is punishable by up to 10 days in jail and a $500 fine.  Possession of greater than 28.5 grams or more of marijuana in a school zone is punishable by up to six months in jail and a fine of up to $500.

The cultivation or processing of any amount of marijuana is punishable by up to sixteen months in state prison.  There is an exception to the cultivation prohibition for patients or patients’ caregivers who possess or cultivate for personal use by the patient upon approval of a physician.

The laws regarding possession and cultivation of marijuana do not apply to patients or patients’ primary caregivers who possess or cultivate marijuana for the personal medical use of the patient, upon the recommendation or approval of a physician.

Selling marijuana in any amount is punishable by 2 – 4 years in the state prison.  Giving away less than 28.5 grams is a misdemeanor and is punishable by a fine of up to $100.

Sale of marijuana to a minor is punishable by 3 – 5 years in prison.

For anyone under the age of 21 convicted of any of the above offenses, the state may suspend the offender’s driver’s license for up to one year.

Possession of paraphernalia is a civil fine of $200-$300 for the first offense and goes up to $5,000-$6,000 for a fifth or subsequent violation within a five-year periood.

A breakdown of CA county and local medical marijuana guidelines is available here: http://www.safeaccessnow.net/countyguidelines.htm.

  Decriminalization: The state has decriminalized marijuana to some degree. Typically, decriminalization means no prison time or criminal record for first-time possession of a small amount for personal consumption. The conduct is treated like a minor traffic violation.

  Medical marijuana: This state has medical marijuana laws enacted. Modern research suggests that cannabis is a valuable aid in the treatment of a wide range of clinical applications. These include pain relief, nausea, spasticity, glaucoma, and movement disorders. Marijuana is also a powerful appetite stimulant and emerging research suggests that marijuana's medicinal properties may protect the body against some types of malignant tumors, and are neuroprotective. For more information see NORML's Medical Marijuana section.

  Hemp: This state has an active hemp industry or has authorized research. Hemp is a distinct variety of the plant species cannabis sativa L. that contains minimal (less than 1%) amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the primary psychoactive ingredient in marijuana. Various parts of the plant can be utilized in the making of textiles, paper, paints, clothing, plastics, cosmetics, foodstuffs, insulation, animal feed, and other products. For more information see NORML's Industrial Use section.

Not really. Without the actual MMIC your not really a medical marijuana patient in the state of California and can be arrested. You can also always be arrested by the DEA if you're growing due to federal law so you're really always at risk. Never tell anyone about a grow under any circumstance or personal relationship. Not  bad idea to have a lawyer either. All this might change as soon as November.

The system is flawed and abused so people occasionally get arrested for the wrong reasons. November is the election in California where marijuana legalization is actually on the ballot and gaining massive support. Hash is a felony, whether or not you get arrested is up to the police officers mood that day. Once again the rec is not a for sure get out of jail free card, a MMIC isn't either but they don't hurt.

either you're misinformed, or law enforcement in your area is misinformed.

the MMIC is not required, and furthermore i would not recommend getting it.  on what planet would you voluntarily tell any government that you have that???  terrible fucking idea. 

your rec is all you need.  dont listen to steve buscemi.

As much as I want to agree that you shouldn't trust the MMIC or any government official regarding medical marijuana........ I cant because of the thousands of growers in prison who can tell you how sometimes a recommendation doesn't hold up in a California court, but the MMIC will.
Federally everyone is breaking the law when growing any amount of marijuana so
