MEDICAL MARIJUANA

The medical marijuana program in Washington state is orchestrated differently from most other states. Once qualified by a physician, patients can visit any medically endorsed marijuana stores (like Altitude) to speak with a certified consultant to enter into a medical marijuana authorization database and obtain a recognition card.

This card enables patients to purchase, possess, and grow a limited number of marijuana plants in their residence. The state’s medical marijuana program is overseen by the Washington Department of Health. Health-care practitioners may authorize the use of marijuana for any patient as long as it’s medically appropriate under state law and the profession’s standard of care.
