Why Get A Medical Marijuana Card In Athens
An Ohio medical marijuana card provides Ohio medical marijuana patients with a wide range of benefits:
Access Ohio Marijuana Dispensaries
With your Ohio medical marijuana card in hand, you'll have the ability to access each and every one of the 56 dispensaries in Ohio. These medical marijuana dispensaries will carry a variety of different marijuana products in varying strengths and potency. You will be able to buy products such as tinctures, oils, creams, dry flower and plant material for vaporizers, and edibles.
Law Enforcement Protection
With medical marijuana still new in Ohio, law enforcement officials are often not up-to-date with all of the rules and regulations that govern Ohio's medical marijuana program. With an Ohio Marijuana Card, it will be easy for you to demonstrate to police officers that you are actively registered with Ohio's Medical Marijuana Control Program, and thereby allowed to possess, transport, and consume medical marijuana products legally.
Visit Other States
Depending on the state, you may be able to use your Ohio medical marijuana card in other states that have their own medical marijuana programs. While visiting other states, their medical marijuana laws apply, and many of these states accept marijuana cards from out of state. Although Ohio doesn’t currently have any official reciprocity established between another state, this may change in the near future.
