The 6 People Needed for the DC Medical Marijuana Industry

A Politician

Before you can ever consider using medical marijuana, a politician must legalize it in your area. Now that that has been done in DC, the next person involved is a doctor.

A Doctor

In Washington, D.C., any medical professional licensed in DC can write a recommendation for medical marijuana. If you don’t have a regular doctor or are unsure of what is needed to get your DC medical marijuana card, you can find out more information here and book an appointment with a doctor recommended by Herbal Alternatives.

A Patient

If you or someone you know is suffering from pain, lack of sleep, lack of energy, or could use the added benefits from medical marijuana, they could be considered a patient. Ask your medical professional if you think medical marijuana could help you medically.

A Caretaker

If you are under age or cannot get to a dispensary, a caretaker can purchase medical marijuana for you. The caretaker must be at least 18 years old, not be the caretaker for other patients, never been convicted of selling or purchasing controlled substances, completed the registration process, and been approved by the DC Department of Health.

A Supplier

Like any product, medical marijuana is provided by suppliers who grow cannabis in the DC area. While some dispensaries grow some of their products, most must use suppliers to keep up with demand and have plenty of supplies in stock for their patients.

A Dispensary

There are many options from which to choose in DC for dispensaries, but each one is different and offers its patients a variety of different options. If you have any questions about medical marijuana, please feel free to reach out to us at Herbal Alternatives. We’d love to hear from you!
