How to Apply for a Medical Marijuana Card in California. California residents legalized medical marijuana in 1996 when they passed Proposition 215, the Compassionate Use Act. In 2013, Senate Bill 420 gave patients additional protections including making it harder to charge them when transporting small amounts of medical cannabis. It took twenty years from the passage of Prop. 215 for voters to pass the Adult Use Marijuana Act, also known as Proposition 64, effectively legalizing recreational use for adults. While adults over 21 are able to buy cannabis flower or cannabis-infused edibles, topicals, tinctures, and more with a valid ID, there are many benefits to getting a medical marijuana card in California, especially if it’s part of your medically-endorsed treatment.

To put it mildly and as briefly as possible: physicians are not allowed to prescribe medical marijuana, even though; they are in the medical field. Of course, because of patient confidentiality and privilege, doctors can professionally recommend anything to their patients as they see fit. In lieu of the strict guidelines in the existing cannabis laws, physicians might be very limited in the scope to which they can prescribe certain things, especially alternative medicine. One of the reasons for this is the federal laws and its restrictions and legal assumption that marijuana is a dangerous drug. Therefore, physicians who might be caught by the feds prescribing medical marijuana could have their medical license stripped from them, their practice shut down and a prison sentence. And so, ...

In the United States, marijuana is still not legal on the federal level. This is true whether it is medical marijuana or recreational marijuana or even if marijuana has been legalized in your state. So, you still have to be careful and look out for the feds as they do not acknowledge the legalization of marijuana in any state.

In the 2016 Presidential election, legal marijuana was also the topic of serious discussion and the fact that some of the legislation made it to the ballot is every indication. For the state of Arizona, it was also a big year for medical and recreational cannabis. It was in 1996 that the state of Arizona had medical marijuana legalized.
