In California a patient with a valid marijuana card is permitted to possess small amounts of marijuana for medical purposes. A patient is permitted to possess eight ounces of of dried marijuana and six mature or twelve immature marijuana plants. Their caregiver can also posses marijuana and plants for their patient. A caregiver can be anyone, even just a friend.
The patient is supposed to have a medical marijuana card in their possession. The card is supposed to have the signature of a physician licensed to practice in the State of California. The card has the amount of marijuana the patient is allowed to have and a picture of the patient.
This law is filled with loopholes and essentially allows anyone to possess and smoke marijuana for any reason. The physicians who prescribe marijuana frequently prescribe it for essentially any purpose from loss of appetite to depression. Of course, almost anyone can meet these criteria. It’s all been a massive scam to prevent any significant tax burden on the marijuana industry, and to allow the maximum number of people to smoke dope all day, legally; that’s what the SGT Says.
