If you’re a cannabis consumer, you may want to consider getting a medical marijuana card. Doing so could offer multiple benefits. You could avoid paying state taxes and purchasing more marijuana, get job opportunities and avoid disciplinary actions. It’s also healthier than other ways of consuming the drug.
It’s a healthier way to consume marijuana.
If you don’t smoke marijuana, then you’re not alone. Many people find the idea of smoking anything to be distasteful, and even those who have tried it may feel that way. However, knowing what you’re getting into can be helpful for those who enjoy smoking marijuana or want to try it out for the first time.
What’s so great about smoking? The answer is simple: It’s healthier than alcohol and tobacco! Marijuana has never been linked to any long-term health problems such as cancer or heart disease (1). In fact, some studies suggest that cannabis may even protect against lung cancer (2). As far as short-term effects go—like getting high—your body will eventually return to normal after use ends, just as if you’d had a glass of wine. In addition to being safer than alcohol and cigarettes while providing similar effects in terms of relaxation and enjoyment, cannabis also offers therapeutic benefits such as pain relief and anxiety reduction without harmful side effects; this makes it an ideal substance for medicinal purposes like treating chronic pain due to injury or illness.
You’ll be able to buy more.
Another obvious benefit is the ability to buy more product at once. While you can still purchase an eighth of an ounce at a time, there are some dispensaries that offer eighths as big as a quarter pound! If you’re looking for a medical marijuana card, it’s worth speaking with your doctor about how much cannabis your body needs.
If you get your recommendation and use it at the same dispensary that issued your card, this benefit may not be as relevant. However, if you want to start shopping around or switch things up altogether (for example: trying another dispensary), then this could make all the difference in how much money and time goes into each visit to one place versus another one across town.
It could help you get a job.
If you are an entrepreneur or a new job seeker, a medical marijuana card could be helpful.
The first reason is that it’s a legal document. You can use your medical marijuana card to demonstrate that you have been approved by your doctor to use cannabis for the treatment of an illness or condition. That makes obtaining employment in the cannabis industry easier, where there is still some stigma about working with marijuana (although not as much compared with five years ago). A valid medical marijuana card also shows that you aren’t just some slacker who wants weed for fun—you actually need it for medical reasons! The second reason why having a valid medical marijuana card could be helpful is because of what it means: It means that companies will see you take responsibility for yourself and do something proactive about your health instead of waiting around until something bad happens and then taking drugs only because they’re available at the pharmacy next door (I’m looking at YOU, cough syrup!).
Getting a medical marijuana card may save you money, protect your health and enable employment opportunities.
You may be able to save money, protect your health and improve your employment prospects by getting a medical marijuana card. When it comes to buying weed, you’re allowed to buy more with a medical card than without one. You can also get discounts on some products and services available only at medical dispensaries, and there are sites with MMJ coupons to help you save even more. These include acupuncture treatments for pain relief and other wellness services offered by some dispensaries.
Medical marijuana cards can help people find employment opportunities in California’s cannabis industry as well as elsewhere across the country where legal recreational use is permitted. In San Francisco alone, more than 1 million jobs are available within the cannabis industry, including roles in retailing, growing, and testing cannabis products made from plants grown here or abroad. There are also opportunities in the import/export space, such as one South African company that import cannabis to Germany.
