Acessing a Medical Marijuana Liscense Each state that legalizes medical marijuana can create their own policies on how to get a license. Most states have a system set up where you must pay a fee and fill out an application along with having a doctor’s written consent that the treatment of medical marijuana will benefit your problems. The only state that does not require an application fee is New Mexico. You usually have to show proof of residence and at least half of the sixteen states do not allow other states patients get marijuana through their states. Medical Marijuana The Law and Medical Marijuana Although states have passed bills on legalizing medical marijuana, it is still a schedule 1 drug. This means that under federal law it is still illegal and you can be prosecuted for having marijuana and growing it. It is a misunderstood fact that it is legal and you can just smoke it where ever. There are many cases where patient possessing marijuana for medical purposes are caught and prosecuted by the DEA for having the drug. Often being arrested or even having their property seized. In recent years with the popularity gaining the DEA has backed off patients and dispensaries. If a patient is however caught and being charged they can take it up with the state officials and if having proof that they are using marijuana for medical purposes the offense can be brought down or even taken away. Jail Time? If you are caught with marijuana the federal law has set guidelines of how you are prosecuted and if you must serve time. For instance if you are caught with over 1 kg (2.2 pounds) with no prior convictions you can be serving six to twelve months of probation or another form of sentencing. If you go over 2.5 kg (5.5 pounds) with no prior convictions you serve up to six months in jail, if you are caught with this amount with prior convictions you are risking two to three years in jail with no chance of probation.
