Open A Medical Marijuana Dispensary was established in 2009 in an effort to assist entrepreneurs interested in opening a medical marijuana dispensary. This resulted from the high demand and growth of the medical marijuana industry. The medical marijuana business is booming nationwide and its not as difficult to open a dispensary as you might imagine. We have developed an easy step by step guide on what needs to be done to open and run your very own dispensary. Our E-book goes through all of the proper licensing, permits, state laws, and regulations needed to operate your store the right and safe way. It also covers the type of pricing and budgets you will need to consider when planning on opening a dispensary.
One of the most important things you need to consider before opening your store is your local state law. For instance, in California a major law that allows medical marijuana dispensary’s is Proposition 215 (Prop 215): California Compassionate Use ACT. Another one is the California Senate Bill 420 (SB 420). And finally there is the Attorney General Guidelines, which reconfirms the legality of Prop 215 and SB 420 and also confirms the taxability of medical marijuana transactions and the incorporation of medical marijuana dispensary as a nonprofit organization.
The law SB 420 orders that the state develop laws to ensure the safe distribution of marijuana for medical use. SB 420 in essence permits a state-wide voluntary ID card system that patients or their primary caregivers could join. Furthermore, it guarantees the rights of patients and their primary caregivers to use, grow and sell to patients medical marijuana in dispensaries that are located 1000 feet away from local schools, libraries and churches.
SOME INTERESTING FACTS-
Did you know that Pain relievers are amongst the most widely sold types of medications around the world? In fact, a large number of painkillers don't even need a doctor's prescription, and can simply be purchased over the counter. However, apart from relieving pain, most painkillers also have their share of side effects on the patient's internal organs, most importantly, heart, liver and kidneys. Even morphine, the most widely used pain reliever, is known to be highly addictive, and causes withdrawal symptoms in many patients.
Chemists and physicians have been on the lookout for painkillers that do not have long lasting side effects for ages. Recently, a major breakthrough was made in the field with the discovery of the fact that cannabis (or marijuana) extracts are more effective than many major brands of painkillers at relieving pain.
Common Uses for Medical Marijuana
There are several ways in which a person can consume marijuana for medical use. These include:
- Smoking cannabis buds like cigarettes. The prepared cigarette will not have any tobacco, however.
- Inhaling cannabis extracts through a vaporizer.
- The herb and its extracts can be ingested, in the form of capsules or tablets.
Among these, smoking cannabis buds may have some side effects, especially in non-smokers, who are particularly susceptible to the harmful effects of any kind of smoke. Furthermore, this method is potentially dangerous for lung cancer patients, whose lungs are already scarred, with damaged alveoli. However, other methods do not usually produce any appreciable side effects in any person. In fact, this medication has so few side effects that most people do not develop any of those at all.
