No State-Licensed Doctors : 420 Evaluations Online and MmjDoctorOnline

The only want to get a valid medical marijuana ID card is to obtain one from state-licensed doctors that abide by the same standards as other physicians in the healthcare industry. Not only is this a legal requirement, but it’s also smart to work with a medical professional who can guide you on the proper ways to incorporate medical marijuana in your treatment program.

A medical marijuana doctor has an obligation to work in accordance with state and county regulations mandated under California’s medical marijuana laws. At Zen MD, our physicians are fully licensed in the state of California and fully understand all of the legal ramifications and rules for prescribing medical marijuana. Our doctors always ask to see medical information and possible documentation before they approve your medical marijuana card.

Scam sites such as 420 Evaluations Online and Mmj Doctor Online have no licensed doctors on staff – technically they copy doctors`s signatures from the Internet and paste it to medical marijuana recommendations . They never ask to see documentation and you never speak to a medical professional. They claim that a doctor evaluates your case, but you never have communication with them. In accordance with state law, your information must be evaluated by a licensed physician to get a valid medical marijuana card. Online doctors will ask you a series of questions to identify your symptoms and your condition and verify that you qualify for medical marijuana use. Some will even ask to see documentation from your primary physician who originally diagnosed your condition.

Sites such as 420 Evaluations Online and Mmj Doctor Online do not ask for this information and no licensed physician evaluates your case. This means the medical marijuana cards that 420 Evaluation Online and Mmj Doctor Online issue are fake and will likely be rejected by dispensaries and/or get you in trouble with authorities if they ever ask to verify your medical marijuana card.

You Speak Only to a Physician Assistant

Physicians assistants are not legally able to conduct examinations for medical marijuana ID cards. This applies to both in-office examinations as well as online 420 evaluations. Though they can assist the physician in collecting information and with the actual exam if necessary, they cannot recommend the use of medical marijuana.

When speaking to the person evaluating your case online, ask if they are a physicians assistant or a medical doctor. If you have doubts, ask to see their credentials. A legitimate site with licensed physicians will have no problems providing this information. If they refuse or offer excuses, it’s a red flag that the site is not legitimate.

The Doctor ‘Prescribes’ Marijuana

Marijuana is considered a Schedule 1 drug, which means it is illegal due to its high abuse potential and severe safety concerns. Though advocates of marijuana have long disputed these claims, legislation has not changed to remove it from the Schedule 1 list. Therefore, the law prevents doctors from ‘prescribing’ medical marijuana to their patients. A licensed medical marijuana doctor may ‘recommend’ the use of the drug to their patients to relieve symptoms of medical conditions that have been proven treatable by marijuana.

Listen to the language your online doctor or physicians assistant uses when talking about issuing your card. Does he or she ever use the words ‘prescribe marijuana’? If so, it is a red flag that they do no know the law and are not a legitimate medical marijuana doctor.

The Medical Doctor is Part of a Dispensary

It is against the law for a medical marijuana doctor to have direct contact with marijuana. This and other strict guidelines apply to doctors who conduct their practice in person or online. If your medical marijuana doctor is working out of a marijuana dispensary, they are physically touching the medication and providing it to the patient. This is illegal.

A dispensary can only distribute medical marijuana to those who have a valid state-issued ID card. They cannot recommend the use of the drug, nor can they issue valid ID cards. If your medical marijuana doctor is working in the same building as the dispensary, working in an adjacent building, or is using the same name as the dispensary in his or her practice, you should find a different doctor. Though 420EvaluationsOnline and MmjDoctorOnline are an online doctors and not part of a dispensary, it is still good information for potential medical marijuana patients to know.

It is imperative to work with a licensed medical marijuana doctor when applying for your state-issued ID card. This ensures that your information is kept safe and secure, that any questions you have will be answered and, most importantly, that the ID you receive in the mail is legal. Remember to be wary of any doctor who ‘prescribes’ rather than recommends medical marijuana and always ask if you are speaking to a licensed physician if you have doubts about the site’s legitimacy.

Medical marijuana can be incredibly beneficial for those experiencing the symptoms of arthritis, chronic pain, nausea from chemotherapy, glaucoma, and a number of other conditions. Though it is legal in the state of California, you must have a valid state-issued ID before you can legally purchase medical marijuana from a dispensary. If you have any questions about using marijuana to treat your symptoms or if you’d like to apply for a valid ID card, please visit our website.

If you live in the state of California, you benefit from Prop. 64 that was passed in November of 2016. Also known as the Adult Use of Marijuana Act, Prop. 64 loosened many of the weed laws in California and exempted medical marijuana patients with state-issued ID cards from existing sales tax. The new laws now make it legal to possess up to one ounce of marijuana and to cultivate up to six plants per resident, though there are still laws against smoking marijuana in public, possessing an open container of marijuana in a vehicle, and possession on school grounds.

With the lighter California marijuana laws, many more people feel comfortable turning to this alternative therapy to treat symptoms of chronic pain, sleep disorders, cancer treatments, and anxiety. Those who have researched medical marijuana know that the drug is often more effective and presents fewer side effects than prescription medicines or other mainstream medical treatments.

Though you can get a recommendation for medical marijuana from a traditional doctor, it’s more convenient to apply for a medical marijuana card online. You can apply from the comfort of your own home and be approved within minutes. ID cards are valid for a year and are recognized by all members of law enforcement. They enable holders to purchase marijuana at any legal dispensary and also allow them to grow it in their homes for personal use.

If you decide to apply for an online medical marijuana card, it’s important to find a reputable online medical marijuana doctor to work with. Here are a few tips on locating a professional doctor that can fulfill your medical marijuana request.

Ask Others Who Applied for a Medical Marijuana Card Online

 Do you have friends, family members, or co-workers who have applied for and received a medical marijuana ID card online? If so, ask them about the doctor they used and what their experience was. Was there information treated with confidentiality? Were all their questions answered? Did they receive their approval and card promptly? If the experience was a good one, you may want to consider using the same doctor. If it wasn’t, you will know to steer clear!

 Use Online Directories

 By doing a simple search online, you can find online directories that list the legal medical marijuana online doctors in California. Some of these directories may even have reviews or ratings to help you choose legitimate sites that can serve your needs. However, it’s important to do your own research of each site listed before you choose to work with them.

 Look for the Following

 Once you have located several online medical marijuana doctors to choose from, you can ask yourself the following questions about them so you can narrow your choices and settle on the best fit for your needs.

 Are they licensed? Make sure the medical marijuana doctors on the site are medical board licensed physicians. If it does not state this on the site, ask customer service for the doctors’ credentials. If they hesitate to give them to you, this serves as a red flag and you should look for a different site.

 Are they available 24/7? If you have questions or need help, it’s comforting to know that the doctors and their staff are available to answer them at any time of day or night. Check to make sure there is a representative from the site available 24/7 to help with any requests or issues.

 Do they answer all your questions? You may have several questions when applying for your medical marijuana ID card. The customer service representatives working with the doctor should answer your questions quickly and thoroughly. If they don’t get back to you in a reasonable amount of time or are evasive when answering any questions, look for a different site.

 Are they concerned with your privacy? When choosing a medical marijuana doctor online, confidentiality should be one of your top priorities. Ask if they will make you fill out any incriminating medical marijuana forms and what type of packaging they will send your ID card in. You should also make sure they are HIPAA and ASA certified, which means they have taken steps to keep your private information safe and secure. If your information is not stored in a HIPAA-approved system, you run the risk of having your personal information compromised by hackers. This could include everything from your birthdate and social security number to your credit card information.

Do I still need to pay if I am not approved? In some cases, your medical marijuana ID card will not be approved. If this is the case, it’s important to know if you still need to pay the fee involved. Ask this questions before you apply for your ID card and before you give any online site your credit card or other payment information. Reputable online medical marijuana doctors will not charge you if your ID card is not approved and their customer service representatives should answer all your questions about why you were not approved and the next steps to take.

How long is my recommendation good for? Reputable online medical marijuana doctors will be able to give you a recommendation and an ID card that is valid for one year. Make sure you ask this question before you apply for your ID card. If the recommendation is valid for less than a year, it means you will need to re-apply and pay the fee again to renew your recommendation in the next 12 months.

Getting your online medical marijuana ID card in the state of California should not be a hassle. If you have a medical condition that can be treated with marijuana, you deserve to have access to the alternative medicine that can improve your quality of life. To find a doctor that can help you with your request, ask around, do some online research, and make sure you ask the above questions before settling on a doctor to handle your request.
