The number of medical marijuana patients in Washington DC has been low throughout the inception of the program. Many dispensaries are doing everything they can to keep their customers happy. These owners must keep their customers loyal to their location and do everything they can to make sure a patient renews their card yearly.
Although this may seem like an easy task, the data shows that for the most part, a lot of patients are choosing not to renew their medical marijuana cards. This is a huge problem.
We spoke with a couple current patients in the program to answer this question: Why are they choosing to pass on the program?
For the most part, patients feel that the process of renewing their card is just as difficult as initially joining the program. Having to send documents to the DOH, not having any form of communication, and going to the doctor’s office all over again seems to be issues patients face with the current program. Most patients would feel much more at peace if they could do the renewal process from their homes, rather than have to deal with the same process they dealt with last year.

Patients also informed us that the price was too high. Many patients did not feel like they needed to spend another $250 – $400 just to renew their card and send in an application fee.
With this in mind, we’ve sought out to build a much more efficient ecosystem for the medical marijuana program in Washington DC. Patients can now renew at a much more efficient speed rather than choosing to go to an office, send documents through an unsecure source or even have to bring them to an undisclosed location. Patients who need to renew their medical marijuana recommendations in DC can now do everything right on their laptop or cell phone.
With consistent communication to the Department of Health, you can now feel secure knowing that you can deliver messages directly to a representative at the Department.
