Becoming A Medical Marijuana Patient **:
Medical Benefits of Marijuana and history of Marijuana


Objective: to educate students on history, facts, and statistics about illegality of marijuana.


We cover what type of physician or doctor’s recommendation “certificate or letter” is required, by the state or locality, to be in the possession of THE MEDICAL MARIJUANA PATIENT FOR VERIFICATION and what you must do with this information.
As a collective, coop, club, delivery service, dispensary or “other” – you must operate within the specifications of the local law which requires that specific forms and procedures be followed to verify a patient, to validate the authorization to grow (as a collective farm for “many”), as a commercial operating “farm” for larger collectives (more than 50 people).
Contact information for organizations and groups that can help advocate the use of medical marijuana in your area are available, to all Alumni, online.
** Contact information from local doctor’s, that provide patient consultations and referrals, will be provided in your handouts, when available in your area.
