2) FIND A DOCTOR/GATHER FEES Find a doctor that refers medical marijuana. Here at Total Health Concepts, we can help you locate a doctor, set up an appointment and send off the appropriate forms to the State Registry. Remember, the state currently charges a fee of $90 EVERY time you renew your paperwork. Generally, the patient will use the referral forms as a temporary license for about eight months and THEN they will receive a tri-folded red Medical Marijuana card which is good one year from the process date.
3) DETERMINE YOUR GROWER The Registry gives patients several options in this regard.
a. Self (You can grow all six plants yourself)
b. Care-giver (You can select an individual as your registered care-giver. They are limited to five patients they can give care to.
c. Medical Marijuana Center (You designate a MMJ Center/dispensary to grow all six plants for you).
**Total Health Concepts offers a free eighth ounce EVERY month for free as well as 10% of the monies spent given back to the patient in the form of a store credit at the beginning of every month for the previous month.**
d. Self and Medical Marijuana Center (You can grow three plants and the MMJ Center is allowed to grow the other three).
**Total Health Concepts offers a free 1.75G for free per month AND the 10% credit if we are to grow three plants.**
Bottom line, pick a MMJ Center that is convenient (close in proximity), offers real perks for that center being allowed to grow for you and knows the specifics of the industry/products.
