That's homegrown though. By the time it gets to store shelves...theres a loooot of overhead there. I would be curious to see a legitimate cost breakdown of the entire chain from grower to end user



IMO the "joke" is needing a license to legally posses/consume. Especially considering its a "medical" license... meanwhile docs can prescribe opiates all day long and the consumer doesn't require a $100 license, to be renewed every 2 years

You could sell me on a "license" to produce and distribute to others. Pay-to-play medical cards are a complete scam as far as I'm concerned.

In my state a lot of medical users dropped out of the program when recreational passed.

But our state has zero tolerance for having thc in your blood if your in an accident or thought to be intoxicated.

People with a medical card are allowed to have an internal possession. A factor that could save thousands of dollars.

The politico article you posted reminds me of here before recreational passed. But since then it's become mostly a yawner.

Our current issue is dispensaries are paying politicians to pass laws limiting or eliminating private home grows. Apparently they aren't making enough money.

Hopefully your recreational law will be passed and the hysteria will die down. Good luck.

To clarify I just kind of jumped in on this conversation... not my article or my state!

Plus as @JBone65 said, applicants rarely (if ever) get denied. You're basically buying privilege to use with the excuse/lie of a medical condition. Which you've seen when the med users dropped out once rec. came about

We're in limbo here in NY it feels like. supposedly shits gonna start opening up soon but we're legal, with nowhere to buy.

Personally I don't think I would ever look to get a med card... much rather just stick to my existing routine that has been working wonderfully for me. Obviously everybody is different especially between states

I would say the only way I see myself agreeing with med cards is if its for truly needed/screened patients and the med card waives the taxes & fees at point of sale. IMO that should be the only difference between medical and rec.

Right, but think of all the jobs it creates! Plus I get to basically buy some random doc who talks to me for 45 seconds a new set of golf clubs every year!

SOOO many jobs created, and frankly, countless childrens lives have been saved.

The real problem is that joke of a medical system blew away the "legal" recreational one in many regards.

Here in California they now act like there's no such thing as medical cannabis anymore, and all the purported healing benefits they claimed to pass medical cannabis are now gone since rec passed. Seems like all the progress our 20+ year medical program made is now just a joke since cannabis is just another recreational drug like peppermint schnapps now.

Bipartisan Attorneys General Tell Congress To Center Federal-State Cooperation In Marijuana Legalization Plans​


“It is imperative that legislation legalizing cannabis under federal law be accompanied by a post-legalization federal regulatory regime that respects federalism while working in concert with existing state regulation. In our view, it is now time for the federal government—in cooperation with States—to develop an efficient and effective regulatory framework, so that federal legalization, if and when it occurs, does not lead to a chaotic market where needed regulation is absent. Any regulatory framework must strike the right balance. It must avoid both under regulation and overregulation, allowing the development of a legal cannabis industry while implementing necessary public health and public safety oversight.”

The only reason to get a med card in new york is to be able to buy medical weed in maine, the medical system in NY itself is utter garbage.
