It was on September 14, 2015, when the use of medical marijuana became official in Maryland. The state has over 40,000 recorded patients, and the numbers continue to rise as more people become aware of its benefits. However, the government places certain measures to regulate the use of the drug. 

The authorization to purchase marijuana only comes when the patient has a medical marijuana card in Maryland. States all across the country require the presence of a medical marijuana card; however, its use is exclusive to the boundaries of the state. Thus, here are other reasons why it is essential to acquire a medical marijuana card.

Lesser cost

There are several added taxes that consumers have to cover in purchasing the drug after taking a look at states that allow the recreational use of marijuana. Retail taxes can take up to 10% while excise taxes range up to a whopping 15%. 

However, patients with medical marijuana cards can avoid paying the taxes as the state allows for tax exemptions when it comes to people with medical issues. As such, purchasing with the card can save you a hefty amount of money. 

Higher-quality Cannabis

Dispensaries in Maryland undergo several processes to register themselves legally. As such, the government ensures that dispensaries adhere to a certain standard and access those high-quality drugs by having a medical marijuana card in Maryland. Getting marijuana that is of exceptional quality helps treat symptoms more effectively and reduce the chances of having negative side effects. 

Access for patients who are under 18 years old

Patients over the age of 18 can purchase their own medical marijuana in Maryland, given that they have acquired the necessary documents. Persons younger than 18 can have access to medical marijuana by having their legal guardians registered as a caregiver. As such, the age limit is relaxed when a patient has a medical marijuana card. 

Wider access to product options

There are several methods in consuming medical marijuana, and the most common of which is through smoking and vaporizing. However, some patients may not prefer those methods, which is why having a medical marijuana card helps you gain access to other tools for consumption. You can purchase medical marijuana in topical lotions or even edibles when you have a medical marijuana card. 

Know the right strain for you

The process of acquiring a medical marijuana card includes getting a physician certificate which must come from a registered doctor. In the certification, the doctors will diagnose which strain would be best in helping alleviate your condition.

State protection

The use of marijuana remains to be heavily regulated to avoid abuse. As such, people who are not registered are susceptible to a felony under criminal marijuana laws. Having a medical marijuana card ensures protection against being criminalized, so it is important to carry your card everywhere. 

The medical benefits of marijuana are widely known, and that is why more states are moving forward to push its legalization. The medical card also makes a patient’s use certified, which helps make purchasing marijuana easier. There is no disadvantage when a person with a qualified condition gets a medical marijuana card.
