Winds might come sweeping down the plain in the state of Oklahoma but longer MMJ licenses may not anytime soon.
Medical marijuana cards which often have a validity of a year in most of the states are set for a change.
And it is none other than our own, sunny state, Oklahoma which is making changes. Not just the period but several different rules related to MMJ, the state is altering.
These changes are coming in power from September 14. So, here are we writing a blog about these significant changes and what they mean?
As per new changes, Oklahoma is going to provide MMJs with the validity of just two months.
Currently, they have a two-year validity span for MMJ cards. And it is not sure whether they are going to scrap it or not.
But the state of Oklahoma is the first state in the US, where MMID is in practice, where card’s validity will be shorter than a year.
Utah is the only other state in the whole United States of America, where the validity of MMJ is six months.
Utah will start the program next year. This makes Oklahoma the first state to have MMJ cards with validation shorter than a year.
When the clouds from the fate of the existing plan will clear, we would comment on its effects on patients.
The Whole GPS Thingy
When no one is sure about the validation of medical marijuana card, people are blunt critics of another change.
Actually, according to new changes, pharmacy trucks carrying Medical marijuana will have GPS devices installed in them.
Indeed, the state government is planning to track the live location of these trucks. They are going to maintain detailed logs of these medical cannabis trips also.
Some legal representatives are against this change, as they believe that it is discrimination.
Advocates of medical marijuana freedom are questions if other pharmaceutical trucks are tracking free then, why these trucks only?
Discount For Veterans
If something positive is to pick from new changes, then it is massive discounts for veterans.
Veterans with 100 percent VA disability rating will get “heavy discounts” on the medical cannabis cards from August 30.
The Last One
For the last one, we kept the biggest one; Oklahoma is making drastic changes in the marijuana medical recommendation sector.
Apparently, unlike before, now other physicians, including podiatrists, would recommend an MMID.
This new change is seeing a grand welcome in the 420 community and patients.
It sure would have made 420 doctors Garden Grove happy giving them new hopes.
As per the stats by the Medical Marijuana Authority, there are nearly 170,000 cardholders in Oklahoma.
And over 1700 licenses are with dispensaries. So, how they are going to cope with all the new changes?
What affects the changes will bring to the already suffering MMJ patients. Or what fresh hell these are going to break open on the state?
We would love to know your views on these changes and what else they should change?
Please tell us what do you think about the whole business with trucks and GPS too.
