Benefits of a Virginia Medical Marijuana Card
Although Virginia just recently passed legislation to allow for recreational marijuana in the state, there are still many important reasons to obtain an actual medical marijuana card:
· Access to dispensaries. Only Virginia residents with a valid medical marijuana card may access and purchase products from dispensaries. Those without a card will have protection to possess marijuana but they will not be able to access dispensaries to purchase officially licensed products.
· Lower costs. Medical cardholders will not have to pay sales tax on marijuana products purchased from dispensaries. This typically makes the costs lower than going through the recreational program.
· 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 treatment using medical marijuana.
