I knew I had to pay to get my medical marijuana ID card.
- The state provided the cost of obtaining the medical marijuana card and broke down the process to where a child could understand.
The only thing they didn’t specify was how much the medical professional was going to charge. I had a list of medical professionals that were in the area, and they all helped patients get the medical cannabis card. I had to call each 1, which was embarrassing. Two of the medical professionals were gynecologists, 1 was a psychiatrist. I wasn’t a woman, and I wasn’t having psychological problems. All I wanted was something to ease the pain. I found 1 medical professional that specialized in pain management, but she was almost 100 miles away. I called him up and set an appointment. That was a year ago, and it cost myself and others almost $250 if you count the gas money to go to and from the office. Last week, it was time to renew my medical marijuana card again. The price of gas was even higher, and I still had to pay $50 for the medical marijuana ID card, and another $200 for the medical professional. The kicker was that I didn’t need to see the medical professional this time. I drove the 100 miles to get to the medical professional’s office and handed the money to the receptionist. I never saw the medical professional, but she worked on my application for medical marijuana. It’s too poor I could not send the money through the mail, however they didn’t accept checks, money orders, or debit cards. It was money up front, however I’m good for another year, and maybe they’ll change the cost before I need the card next year.
