The cost of medical marijuana is extremely high.
The price per dosage is only minute to HIV medication, but prices on marijuana have jumped 300% in the last several years thanks to the legalization of the product.
Medical marijuana is not covered by any insurance provider. The cost to become certified is absolutely up to the patient. That is one 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 doctor as well as 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 our medical marijuana card only took 15 minutes as well as our appointment with the doctor was only twice as long. I told the doctor that I wanted to beginning using medical marijuana to help with the pain as well as inflammation I have in our back from a car accident when I was 20. The doctor asked a couple of questions about our condition as well as he looked at our medical records. He provided myself and others some medical information about marijuana as well as signed our paperwork. 10 afternoons later I acquired a card from the state allowing myself and others to purchase medical marijuana from any dispensary. I absolutely spend more money on healing as well as therapy now that I am using medical marijuana. I do get better results, so at least it’s not a waste of money. It would be nice if medical marijuana was covered by insurance.
