What is a Recommendation?
A medical marijuana recommendation, or a physician’s recommendation means a recommendation from a licensed physician indicating that a person may benefit from the use of cannabis.
Cannabis is classified by the federal government as a Schedule I drug and doctors are unable to prescribe it to their patients. But physicians can and many do, recommend its use.
What is a State ID Card (MMIC)?
The California Department of Public Health is responsible for issuing Medical Marijuana Identification Cards (MMIC), otherwise known as a state ID card.
To apply for this card, visit www.cdph.ca.gov
State ID Card holders are exempt from the local sales & use tax and in some cases a city tax, but NOT the 15% California Consumer Cannabis Excise Tax.
