The cost of medical marijuana is extremely high.
The price per dosage is only minute to HIV medication, and prices on marijuana have jumped 300% in the last 3 years thanks to the legalization of the product.
Medical marijuana is not covered by any insurance provider. The cost to become certified is honestly up to the patient. That is a single of the largest reasons why I waited a long time before I became certified for medical marijuana. I knew the process was difficult, because I would be required to see a nurse & fill out paperwork for the state. I wasn’t looking forward to the application process. Things turned out to be much easier than I anticipated. The process to apply for my medical marijuana card only took 15 minutes & my appointment with the nurse was only twice as long. I told the nurse that I wanted to beginning using medical marijuana to help with the pain & inflammation I have in my back from a car accident when I was 20. The nurse asked a couple of questions about my condition & she looked at my medical records. She gave me some medical information about marijuana & signed my paperwork. 10 afternoons later I acquired a card from the state allowing me to purchase medical marijuana from any dispensary. I absolutely spend more currency on healing & therapy now that I am using medical marijuana. I do get better results, so at least it’s not a waste of currency. It would be nice if medical marijuana was covered by insurance.
