Understanding a Medical Marijuana Dispensary

A cannabis dispensary, cannabis club, or cannabis coop is a place in which cannabis is legally sold for medicinal or recreational use. In the Netherlands it is called “kronen” or “cannabis coffee shops.” In the United States, they now exist as an outlet for either medical and recreational use. There are some 20 states in which cannabis is legal and pharmacies can legally sell it to the public. However, most states have banned cannabis completely; excepting California, which legalized medical and recreational use of the drug in 1996. Have a look at this post for more info on this.

The Airport has become the latest example of a cannabis dispensary. There is currently a bill before the state legislature, the “caregivers for patients” act, that would allow anyone who wants to harvest, cultivate, harvest, or distribute small amounts of marijuana for personal medical use to do so without being licensed by the state. The reason that the airport allows people to grow their own cannabis is because many of them suffer from debilitating illnesses such as cancer, glaucoma, MS, epilepsy, AIDS, and the list goes on. It is not uncommon for them to be arrested and spend time in jail for growing a plant that is allowed by the state to be grown only for medicinal purposes. The state of Colorado also regulates the amount of marijuana plants that can be harvested from each plant and requires businesses to label any marijuana products that are sold that contain more than two percent concentrations of the drug.

The cannabis dispensary trend began to boom during the early 1990’s when marijuana was first legalized for medicinal use. Since then, there have been a number of changes that have taken place. Some strains have been abandoned by growers and replaced with better ones. Others have been moved from outdoors into indoor growing facilities, which is easier to maintain and control. This has allowed many growers to come up with better strains that have more desirable qualities for growing and selling to medical cannabis users throughout the world.
