It would be extremely lucrative for the state
I live in a state where medical marijuana is legal but recreational weed is not. I’ve debated going through the process of getting my MMJ card. I’ve gone online and looked into the possibility multiple times. I simply google search and multiple licensed doctors names, locations and phone numbers come up. It’s very easy to book an appointment online. However, I’d need to take the day off from work, drive thirty minutes and spend several hundred dollars. I could then qualify for a card that would last for one year. It would provide access to the many dispensaries in the area. I’d be able to choose from cannabis-infused edibles, beverages, smokable flower, pre-rolls, vapes, tinctures, topicals and concentrates. I don’t suffer any major medical issues but I do deal with numerous small concerns. I get migraines and muscle cramps in my calves. I have arthritis in my fingers and psoriasis on my elbows and knees. I have been unwilling to take synthetic medicines due to the long-range side-effects. I believe that I could benefit greatly by taking cannabis for my ailments. It is a natural remedy that works by connecting with receptors of the endocannabinoid system in the body. The body actually creates natural cannabinoids very similar to those found in the cannabis plant. I keep hoping that my state will legalize recreational cannabis. It is a fast-growing industry that brings in a great deal of money. It would be extremely lucrative for the state. I worry that I will finally get my MMJ card and recreational cannabis will be allowed almost simultaneously.
