In today’s society, there are many angles to treat many ailments. For some, traditional medicine and corporate pharmaceutical route remain the top options. However, more and more are waking up to the natural wonders of medical marijuana. This is the case for residents of New Jersey as well, a state where cannabis programs are expanding. If you wish you to obtain a card and you live in New Jersey, we are here to help.
The steps to gain access to New Jersey’s medical cannabis program are simple. We will walk you through the process. So, sit back, relax, and let’s look at the law.
In order to be eligible for a medical marijuana card in New Jersey, you must be a state resident of legal age. For this card, the minimum age is 18. You must first be approved by a licensed physician. There are many ailments that qualify you for medical cannabis use. These include:
If you are having trouble determining if your illness or ailment qualifies you for the NJ medical marijuana program, ask us. Veriheal exists to get you the treatment you need.
Once you know that your ailment is treatable with cannabis, you need to see a doctor. This can be any licensed physician in the state of NJ. If you wish to make matters simpler, let Veriheal put you in front of one of our doctors. They can get you checked out in a private, quick manner. This saves you time, money, and energy, and it gears you up for proper cannabis treatment. Click here to get started.
After seeing a doctor, you will need to fill out a simple state application. You must provide a passport-style photo, a valid New Jersey ID, and your current utility bill (within the last 90 days). The registration fee is $100, but there are certain categories that may qualify you for a reduced fee.
There are certain laws and rules that you must follow once you have been approved.
For starters, you absolutely cannot operate a vehicle while under the influence of marijuana. While there are differences in drunk driving versus driving stoned, the law is the law. If you want your card, play by the rules. Be safe. Be considerate of others on the road.
You cannot smoke:
Further, be sure that you do not share your medical marijuana to anyone else. NJ is strict about this, so do not take it lightly. Sharing is caring, but don’t argue with the law on this one.
Your medical cannabis is to remain at your residence at all times. Keep it stored in its proper, original package. Make sure that the label is not damaged. Also, in the even that you must transport it (moving to a new house, etc.), always have your medical marijuana program card on you as well as proper ID. Do not give any legal authority the go-ahead to make your day quite poor.
While this may sound like many things to remember, it isn’t. Keep it simple. If you think you are doing something against the medical marijuana law in NJ, look it up. Don’t put yourself at unnecessary risk. Yes, it is a huge win that cannabis is legal for this purpose in your state, but always follow the rules. Until we live in a society in which marijuana is as widely accepted as alcohol, tobacco, caffeine, prescription pills, junk food, and other substances, treat your state’s laws with the highest respect.
Remember that Veriheal is here to guide you. Use our resources to get you going in the right direction. The cost is nothing compared to the benefits. For a flat $200 fee, we will set you up with a doctor and get your application moving. All of your consultations will be done online, too.
