@Lia in MA I am a caregiver for my patient however there is no connection to that and gifting marijuana.
In MA you must visit a doctor who specializes in prescribing mj as a treatment. The Dr examines you and your records and then puts you into the state system. The state then issues the patient a card for mmj. The mmj patient can then go to a state certified dispensary and buy mmj and other related items. The mmj patient can name a caregiver who is authorized to purchase mmj for the patient and transport it for the patient.
Then along came legalization…
I don’t know where you live exactly but I know the majority of the dispensaries are located within the 495 belt.
I’m sure there are many folks that need mmj that aren’t located anywhere near a dispensary. Unfortunately I don’t know how you would find these people?
