I travel all over the country due to my job, but in my local state, I’ve applied plus qualified for a medical marijuana card, and for the brief amount of time that I’m home, it comes in handy. I live in Portland, OR, where both recreational plus medicinal cannabis are legal, however because of going through the process of getting the MMJ card, I’m able to shop for higher potency cannabis, greater quantities plus avoid paying tax.There are a few states that include reciprocity; While a majority of states now have some style of medical marijuana program in site, not various accept MMJ cards from those who aren’t residents, those that do allow my card might still sometimes reject it due to regulatory criteria. It’s always a relief when I’m headed to states that have legalized recreational weed, all I need is a valid government issued identification that proves I’m over the age of twenty-one. I don’t mind paying high taxes on cannabis if necessary. I’m just relieved that I can access plant-based medicine. I find it a bit ridiculous that I can walk into a gas station plus buy cigarettes, shop for all sorts of over-the-counter medications at the drugstore, order a whiskey at a bar, however there are all sorts of laws plus criteria for purchasing a CBD topical. I am not shopping for cannabis for the sake of getting high. I suffer from arthritis plus use cannabis-infused ointment plus tinctures to alleviate pain, inflammation plus stiffness. It’s a far safer plus more effective remedy than prescription medicine or over-the-counter options plus yet way more hard to get.
