As the name suggests, a medical marijuana card is an identification card that clearly shows that an individual has gone through the right channels, and that he or she needs marijuana to help him or her deal with a certain medical condition. One might think that acquiring the card is next to impossible, since the herb is precious to people who like using it for recreational purposes, and yet the intention for the card is nothing but medicinal. Here is how you qualify to be a member of the few who have permission from the government to use marijuana.
I. One has to be having a condition that is resulting into chronic pain, a pain that is relentless even when powerful pain killers target to eliminate it. Some conditions that lead to such pain include cancer, HIV, glaucoma and other conditions.
II. One has to be suffering from a disease whose best treatment method is the use of marijuana, since other options simply do not work, or that they are not quite as effective as the herb. As stated earlier, such conditions are those that cause an individual to suffer a lot of pain, the condition causes nausea, the condition might result in seizures, muscle spasms or any other related conditions.
III. One has to be suffering from a condition whose treatment requires marijuana, and the department of health in any country recognizes that marijuana is the best way out.
