Most of us cannot reach our doctors on the telephone when a question or concern comes up. It’s either Urgent Care or the Emergency Room if we can’t wait for an appointment. But in every state, that is not the case for medical marijuana. So how can I get a medical marijuana card online?
If, like me, you have come to accept doctor visits that involve the doctor sitting across the room inputting answers into their laptop rather than as a result of an actual hands-on examination, then you’ll not be surprised to learn the process for obtaining a medical marijuana card online.
At this very point in time, you can get a medical marijuana card online along with a recommendation to legally purchase medical cannabis in New York, California, and Nevada.
How Much of a Shift In Practice Do Online Medical Marijuana Cards Represent?
Does an online medical exam for a medical marijuana card seem odd to you? Truthfully, it’s an extension of what is already taking place. We tell the doctor what’s happened to us and together, patient and doctor, determine the cause. Legal medical cannabis is probably one of the best reflections of the rise of the empowered patient, the changing status of healthcare and the era of personalized medicine.
We’re now talking in the virtual examination room where real doctors recommend, rather than prescribe, but we have no idea where, in the physical sense, these doctors are.
How Do Online Medical Marijuana Cards Work
In California, this is how it works. The doctors recommend the use of medical marijuana (cannabis) to patients based on a medical evaluation conducted via video. The recommendation then allows the patient to enter a medical marijuana (cannabis) dispensary to print the recommendation in the comfort of their home and purchase marijuana (cannabis) medications. Doctors do not, however, dispense.
In California, medical marijuana can be recommended for a wider variety of conditions than in a state like New Jersey or New York. California recognizes “the treatment of cancer, anorexia, AIDS, chronic pain, nausea, spasticity, glaucoma, arthritis, migraine, or any other chronic illness for which marijuana provides relief, including insomnia, anxiety, stress, or PTSD.” That is not the case in NY.
What Is The Difference Between A Recommendation And A Prescription
Here is the pivotal question: do you know the difference between a recommendation and a prescription? “Rather than prescribing marijuana since the plant itself is still considered a Schedule 1 substance along the lines of ecstasy and LSD, with no purported medical use, and illegal on a federal level, healthcare providers “recommend” medical cannabis through a state-regulated legal process,” according to CannaBusiness Law, such as the one I described above.
Just as toll plaza workers disappeared on turnpikes in the northeast only to be replaced by E-ZPass toll system, many of us will live to comfortably accept being screened by robots for our medical concerns.
Do you feel this is an intrusion on your privacy or is getting a medical marijuana card online one way to stop hiding in the bushes about who you really are?
I am really interested in what you think about this. As we will learn to speak the language of legal cannabis we increase our alternatives for living better lives as we age.
