Medical card, cannabis card, weed license, recommendation, prescription, 420 card—call it what you want—it’s a written, certified doctor’s consent to legally purchase and consume medical cannabis to treat your condition or ailment. While there are a handful of online medical marijuana health care services that allow you to get a cannabis card without leaving your home, not all are created equal.
NuggMD has changed the perception of and approach to getting a medical marijuana card here in California. No longer do you have to research a “420 doctor near me,” compare prices, travel (possibly to a shady part of town), wait, then see a “doctor” who isn’t as informed as he or she should be and finally pay a hefty fee for an evaluation—only to find you have pay another sizable one for the actual recommendation.
Medical Marijuana on Probation? Courts Saying Yes!
Probation is a far preferable alternative to incarceration for minor crimes. It’s 20 times cheaper for the state, which doesn’t have to pay to keep a low-level offender behind bars. That money can then be spent fixing schools or filling potholes, making life better for citizens.
And probation is better in every way conceivable for the offender, who can live at home and go to work and otherwise not have his or her life utterly disrupted by a spell behind bars, while still paying a debt to society.
But what if one of the terms of your probation was that you had to live in chronic pain, suffer abdominal cramps or be unable to sleep or eat? In other words, what if the state had the power to tell you, sure, you can stay out of jail, but you can’t use your medication—and if you do, and you’re caught, you’ll go there anyway?
You can imagine the outcry if the criminal justice system instructed AIDS patients to ditch their retrovirals or cancer patients to take a few years’ break from radiation. Yet the state can, and does, impose such restrictions if the medication is medical marijuana.

NEW YORK (AP) — It can almost certainly ease chronic pain and might help some people sleep, but it’s also likely to raise the risk of getting schizophrenia and might trigger heart attacks.
Those are among the conclusions about marijuana reached by a federal advisory panel in a report released Thursday.
The experts also called for a national effort to learn more about marijuana and its chemical cousins, including similarly acting compounds called cannabinoids.
The current lack of scientific information “poses a public health risk,” said the report , released by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine. Patients, health care professionals and policy makers need more evidence to make sound decisions, it said.
Several factors have limited research. While the federal government has approved some medicines containing ingredients found in marijuana, it still classifies marijuana as illegal and imposes restrictions on research. So scientists have to jump through bureaucratic hoops that some find daunting, the report said.
