Getting a Green Card in Venice Beach?
    #626161 - 06/05/12 01:56 PM (4 years, 5 months ago)

Hey everyone,

As I've mentioned recently in other posts, I'll be heading to California on Wednesday. While I'm there, I hate relying on other people to go inside the dispensaries and pick the meds that "they think" I'll enjoy. This time I just want to get my card and go in myself. However, I don't have a California ID, and I know that some dispensaries won't let you get meds without one. I've also heard that some don't care. I was thinking about getting my card in Venice Beach because I've seen how incredibly easy and cheap it is, but I'm wondering if those are legit? Will the clubs accept those recommendations? Would I be wasting my time/money? Help me out if you can. Thanks!

If a place gives you a recommendation without a Calif ID then they aren't legit.

  I've never seen a club that lets you in without one. Not one that is still open anyway.

That is very helpful info. Thank you very much! Now I know I probably shouldn't waste my time with those guys in Venice. Thanks again!

was this the dispensaries finally wising up, and doing some self policing, or did the state crack down on them

The next question would be, how easy is it to get a Cali ID? In Washington, its pretty damn simple last time I checked...

Look into that, and you may be able to get your recommendation while you're there...

You have to live in and be a resident of the state of California. No secret to it you just need to have a valid medical condition, with proof of medical records. I just had mine renewed recently and they were serious in there this time. Docs and patients are trying to save their asses from jail this election season.

Wasn't Venice Beach though, I've been there to hangout on the beach but I didn't get a rec. From what I can tell they still follow the rules like the rest of docs in CA.

"valid" might be stretching things, at least from what I have previously read.  But if the state is finally cracking down, I think that is actually a good thing.  Because the original laxed nature of the process just lead to the very things that the critiques claimed

Yeah I wish all out marijuana legalization would happen nationwide just so we dont have to hear anymore bullshit from either side of the argument.

But to obtain a california driver's license you don't have to verify your address (IE: bring in a bill or letter with your name at that address). You just have to have an address to send your id to.

If you're staying with a friend, use his address and go get yourself a Cali ID. Make an appointment for your recommendation before you leave, and just get your id before you go to the appt.

That way any time in the next year (or 6 months, if you can find someone who does short term ones) that you go back to cali, you can hit up dispensaries there...

Try bringing in a passport or birth certificate should work.
