What are the benefits of getting a card?

Savings: Medical Cannabis is not subject to the 17% state and 3% municipal tax that is applied to recreational products. 


Delivery Options: Medical patients can have their cannabis delivered by dispensaries unlike recreational purchases that must be made in person. 


Greater Options: Medical cannabis patients often have access to a much wider variety of inventory as well as high level dose products that are specifically designed to treat certain conditions.
