It makes a lot of sense to get a medical marijuana card, even if you live in a state with recreational pot laws.
There are a number of benefits to being a medical patient. First of all, you don’t have to pay as many taxes when you make purchases. Some states have state, county, and local taxes and they add up very quickly. A couple of west coast counties charge 36% taxes on pot supplies. You don’t have to pay most of those fees with a medical marijuana card. If there is ever a shortage of weed, medical patients will have first choice and access at all times. Another great reason to get your card is because the daily purchase limits are higher. If you find a great deal, you can stock up on products. Having a medical card means being able to grow and harvest as well. I started growing marijuana plants shortly after I got my medical card. I live in a state that legally allows me to grow and cultivate up to eight plants of my own. I’ve never grown that many plants at one time. I wouldn’t know what to do with that much bud. I have two seedlings and two youth plants at all times. Each one of the plants can yield about a pound of marijuana flower. I share with my friends and family, and I still have plenty of buds left to freeze and store for weeks. With so many wonderful perks, there is absolutely no reason not to obtain a medical card.
