For the past several decades, people around the world have worked to legalize the use of marijuana.

While some are dismissed for only being interested in the recreation from getting high, others maintain real reasons for getting medicated.

It's a fact that this wonder plant is effective in treating a plethora of illnesses such as glaucoma, cancer, Aids, etc. and plays a huge part in lessening side effects like vertigo and nausea that usually comes with such sicknesses. Not to long ago, Medical Marijuana became legal in many places, and medical cannabis dispensaries have sprouted up all over the countryside.

The question that many of you may have is how do these dispensaries really operate?

First, you must understand that the medical marijuana dispensaries DO NOT (or should not if they don't want to get jacked by the cops) serve the benefits of the non legal medical marijuana card holding patients with a drug to get high from. Marijuana dispensaries should only be for the legal medical marijuana card holders that have been approved for the medicine and has a prescription. A lot of people might be in fear of a dispensary coming in around their homes, but the fact of the matter is that the medical marijuana dispensaries are strictly regulated, and do not pose much problems to the community.

In legal medical marijuana states an I.D. can be prescribed by a verified doctor. You usually get the prescription along with the ID card that gives you the legal right to enter a dispensary or shop to get your medicine. Some folks need it to battle nausea while others find peace in medical marijuana when trying to alleviate headaches and anxiety. Marijuana is an excellent treatment for these conditions and many many more.

Usually, a medical marijuana patient is given a set amount of medical weed that they can buy from a dispensary within a certain time frame. Not only can you get your medical buds in dry form but you can also get canna foods that will help ease your pain if you don't want to smoke your medicine. The costs of these items will vary depending on the potency and rarity of the medical buds and will vary from on state to another.

There are way too many people getting locked up for the victimless crime of marijuana possession when getting a medical marijuana card will solve those problems.

It's not too late to protect yourself from the powers that be.

      Bit different here. You can either grow it yourself or designate a grower. Tried to vote in dispensaries, but it failed. Better luck next time. You never answered my question about hermaphrodites. High incidence of hermies. What is your slant?
