Why Should I Get a Medical Marijuana Card in California?

California legalized adult-use marijuana in 2018, so why would you invest in a medical marijuana card? There are two key reasons why a California medical marijuana card might make sense to you.

First, medical marijuana patients can get larger amounts of cannabis and products with more THC than recreational marijuana consumers under current laws. Depending on your medical needs, this could be very important to your treatment. In addition, medical marijuana patients can possess and grow more cannabis than recreational marijuana consumers.

Second, adult-use marijuana is subjected to more taxes and higher tax rates than medical marijuana based on current state and local laws. That means if you purchase adult-use marijuana, your costs are likely to be significantly higher than the cost of medical marijuana.
