How does one qualify for a medical marijuana card? What do you have to do to get one?

Here in Oklahoma I understand it is kind of a joke. Some of the dispensaries have dr.s' on hand who will write a 'scrip for you with no questioins asked, just pay them a fee. I thought about it till I learned my pain management dr. would quite prescribing for me if I had the card. I have never even ever smoked a marijuana cigarette, so I was reluctant to try marijuana anyway, it took me long enough to get up the nerve to try CBD oil!

Hi I hope when you do get one that it comes with better instructions on how to go about picking which product and strength.
Any way, I went through my rheumatologist. His assistant helped me fill out a form which I believe anyone can get from the internet. You have to have a diagnosis that fits their agenda and I believe a doctor has to sign it. I took this to a medical marijuana dispensary and along with I.D. and $100 applied for a card. In the meantime you'll receive a temporary sheet you can use to purchase products. I was overwhelmed by the choices so I went along with the advice of a young man that is much younger than my son. It seems to be a trial and error process without any clear advice on how to go about it... or what you're supposed to feel.. I have a real trouble relaxing.. hope this helps ;)

I feel so bad for all of you. Now that it is legal in Canada it is so easy to get. Still a trial and error adventure to find what works for you. So many choices out there! Take care all🌺

I have a card. In PA you have to go to a doctor that is certified( usually a pain specialist.) I had a a referral from my gastroenterologist. The pain specialist just completed the paperwork. It is 50 dollars to the state. 200 to the doctor. Renewal is 150. Cash only at dispensary. The dispensary pharmacist will meet with the first time.🌝

It really depends on the State that you live. Illinois will have legal marijuana as of January 1, 2020. You should google the question for your State.
