When I first got my medical marijuana card, I was excited to go to the marijuana dispensary.
Since I don’t drive, my husband had to get a medical marijuana caretaker’s ID so he could go into the dispensary with me.
It took some courage for me to get out of the car and go into the medical marijuana dispensary. I was afraid someone would see me, and say something. It shocked me to see that the parking lot was full and there were people waiting to go into the dispensary. I had to press a buzzer and show my medical marijuana ID before I could even get into the first door. Once inside, I gave them my MMID and my state ID card so they could make a copy. I also had to sign a waiver stating I was who I represented myself as. I also had to agree that I would not hold the medical marijuana dispensary, or any of its employees responsible for my use of marijuana. Once I signed, she told me to go back into my car, where the pharmacist would contain me via my cell phone. My husband went through the door, had his ID copied and signed the same paper. He came out to the car to listen to my conversation with the pharmacist. I felt like it was all a bit clandestine, but they said a lot of it had to do with Covid 19 rules and our state’s privacy laws. After my first time in the medical marijuana dispensary, I am now able to go online and put in my order. My husband and I can then go to the medical marijuana dispensary and pick up the order.
