Back in the day it was taxing trying to process paperwork separate from PCs & internet connections.
If you wanted to keep track of the money in your bank account, you had to keep a balance sheet that includes every check written & the amount. These days I take it for granted that I can get this information on my cell phone nearly anytime I want it & I no longer have to manually record my purchases. On top of that, the bank companies are creating cards in them that you only have to hover over the payment screen to confirm a purchase. That way you don’t have a chip or a magnetic strip on the card that is damaged while in long term use. Although our state medical marijuana cards aren’t quite as fancy as current bank cards, they’re also becoming more simple to renew as a medical marijuana patient. When I started in our state’s medical cannabis program more than three years back, you had to send a physical application to the state capital, along with passport photos from a Walgreens or CVS that you had to pay for yourself. With the application, photos, & medical documents, you also had to include a check for $77. Now you can do all of this with just a couple of clicks on your PC or smartphone, especially now that the state medical marijuana office is actually linked to the DMV. You can select a checkbox that imports all of your data from the DMV state archives. They will import the photo from your driver’s license & the residency status on top of that. As you can imagine, this is also a speedy way to transfer identification information if it’s accurate on your license. Instead of waiting for the length of two weeks, I was recently approved for my medical marijuana card in merely six days!
