Medical marijuana should be cheaper.

I am a firm believer that medical marijuana should be cheaper.

You need to pay a lot of money to get a medical marijuana ID card, and the price of buying medical marijuana is crippling our wallets.

I see people coming into the medical marijuana dispensary, and I can tell they aren’t any better off than I am. Most of us are on set incomes because of our disability. In our state, you need to have a disability and be unable to function properly, for them to give you medical marijuana status. I have rheumatoid arthritis and was close to being in a wheelchair. Medical marijuana has given me back some quality of life, but I can’t afford to use it as the doctor recommended. One small tube of marijuana infused pain cream cost me over $60. That is my entire budget for medication, and I’ve not yet purchased my regular prescriptions. While the state is getting rich by offering legal, medical marijuana, we are getting poorer. I would not purchase medical marijuana when I saw the price, but the doctor assured me it would help, which it has. Next month, I’ll be going back to over-the-counter medicines, because medical marijuana is making it too hard to live. Medical marijuana should be cheaper or partially covered by our insurance. I heard some people may get their medical marijuana for free, because they are considered poverty-stricken. They get their food stamps, monthly money, and everything medical is free. Now they are considering giving them medical marijuana for free. This is a travesty.
