Benefits of an FSST South Dakota Medical Marijuana Card
South Dakota’s state medical marijuana program will not be up and running until Fall 2021, but getting a medical marijuana card through the Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe (FSST) in the meantime offers some great benefits:
· Earlier access to dispensaries and medical marijuana. The FSST currently has a dispensary open with various medical marijuana products available. Only patients with an official FSST medical marijuana card will be able to access this dispensary. Those who wait for the state program may not be able to purchase medical marijuana until fall or even winter of 2021.
· Legal protection. Although state-issued medical marijuana cards will not be available until fall 2021, having an FSST medical marijuana card will offer you a degree of legal protection and show that you have a real medical need for marijuana in the event you are caught with products in the state.
· Guidance from healthcare and industry professionals. As a medical patient, you will have access to the professional opinion of our doctors and staff as well as dispensary agents regarding what strains, forms, and dosages of marijuana may work best for you. This helps ensure you are getting the best possible care using medical marijuana.
