Most states with recreational cannabis have high taxes on the products.
The taxes pay for things around the community and the city like new highways, bridges, and playgrounds.
Sometimes the local taxes can equal 15% or higher. One way to save on those extra taxes and fees is to apply for a medical cannabis card. There are at least 100 different problems that can be helped with medical cannabis, so it’s virtually impossible not to be approved. After I moved to this state, I applied for a medical cannabis card. I suffer from mild depression and panic attacks. I get really scared when I have to drive after dark, and I get depressed two weeks every month. The mental issues are hard to describe and hard to discuss, but I spend an hour every week talking to a therapist. The therapist was the person that told me about medical cannabis and how it would be able to help with my problems. Panic attacks and mild depression are both issues that plague many young people. Medical cannabis has been proven to treat both of these issues. Each week when I go to the pot shop to stock up on medical supplies, I save 17% on my order, just because I applied for the medical card. When you stack that with the average 20% deals that the dispensary holds, that is an enormous amount of money to save. Until the taxes are lowered on recreational marijuana, applying for a medical card is the only way to avoid paying all of the steep fees.
