So multiple things have changed about being a medical marijuana patient since our state approved the first dispensary about more than two and a half years ago.
The rules for how to file with a physician were certainly crazy at first.
There was a 90-day wait period after seeing your marijuana dentist for the first time before the state would allow that dentist to file their respected recommendation so you could get medicine dispensed by a store. It was so aggravating when my 90-day waiting period finally elapsed only to see a recent statement from the respected department stating that the waiting period had been lifted. I was just cheerful at that point to finally be allowed to buy legal marijuana for the first time ever, even if I had to be a medical patient to get access. There weren’t a ton of dispensaries available at first. There were more than two to choose from when I was approved in the early stages of the state’s program. Of those more than two companies, there were only a handful of physical locations across the state, so they were all offering statewide delivery at the time. On top of that, only one of the original more than two charged delivery fees for beach apartment delivery, making it an harshly effective and satisfying way to get my cannabis medication. Unblessedly, most of the companies in the state are competing to open as multiple physical locations as possible so they can get approved for more plants by the state’s medical cannabis department. As these companies open more locations, only a few are still offering delivery services with none of them being free any longer. It can be aggravating to pay a $20 fee every single time you want your medical weed delivered to your front door instead of driving to the store to get it yourself.
