Possession

Let’s pretend adult-use (aka recreational) cannabis laws are passed shortly. There MAY be other benefits if the Arizona legislature follows what is becoming the standard model for state-level marijuana decriminalization. Those benefits MIGHT include:

  • Saving money – Taxes are often waived for medical marijuana and those taxes can be through the roof for equivalent recreational purchases.

  • Selection – Many dispensaries in recreational states still offer medical patients more potent cannabis products. Many of these recreational states also have provisions written into the laws that mandate a certain percentage of a product be reserved for medical patients. So if a dispensary runs out of adult-use cannabis, they will likely still have your medicine.

  • Age – If a patient is under 21 (but over 18,) they MUST have a medical marijuana card to medicate with cannabis for a qualifying condition.

Benefits of Having Your Medical Marijuana Card in Arizona

Though medical cannabis and employment rights currently have a rocky relationship, you’d be far more likely to have problems at your workplace if you fail a drug test and you’re not registered as a medical marijuana patient.

As of today, an MMJ card in Arizona entitles you to possess up to 2.5 ounces of usable marijuana flower (or it’s equivalent in concentrate, edible or topical form) every two weeks. Without an MMJ card, you’re entitled to possess exactly none of that. In nearly every state where recreational cannabis is legal, the amounts of possession allowed without a medical card are less than one ounce. There is no reason to believe Arizona won’t follow suit on this guideline.

The current law allows people who live further than 25 miles away from the nearest medical marijuana dispensary to grow their own plants. You can grow up to 12 plants at a time in an enclosed and locked area.

With many states passing recreational marijuana laws, some residents wonder, “When will Arizona be next?” Some of these same residents may then wonder, “If it’s going to be legal anyhow, what’s the point of having a medical marijuana card?” Well, there are many reasons to enroll in the Arizona Medical Marijuana program today. And even if recreational use comes up for another vote (Proposition 205 was rejected by less than 3% of the ballots cast, and attitudes have changed since 2016) your medical marijuana card will still offer you plenty of benefits.  ​

Why You Should Get an MMJ Card

Though medical cannabis and employment rights currently have a rocky relationship, you’d be far more likely to have problems at your workplace if you fail a drug test and you’re not registered as a medical marijuana patient.
