How to get your medical marijuana card in Illinois without getting off your couch.

If you're reading this article, there's a good chance you have an interest in cannabis. In fact, you probably partake in some form. Which means you might know about the rules and regulations in the state of Illinois.

So, your first thought could be, why do I care about getting a medical marijuana card when recreational weed is legal here. Well, I have a couple of reasons that could change your mind.

First of all, have you noticed the long lines at the dispensaries? Well, medical cardholders get special treatment. They get designated hours to shop. Also, when there is a product shortage, they get priority.

The second benefit is money. Taxes are extremely high for pot. Medical customers get a break on those fees. Who doesn't like to save money?

I can already guess your next thought. Well, how am I going to get approved? It's hard enough to get into the doctor for an appointment right now. Maybe, you don't feel comfortable going to the office.

I've got good news. Things have changed in Illinois. You don't even have to get off the couch. Doesn't that sound better?

According to,

"State-regulated and tested cannabis you need to apply for your medical cannabis card, and now it's easier than ever. We have been using a HIPAA compliant telemedicine platform to see our Missouri patients since June 2019 and now Illinois is allowing us to use it for patients here during the COVID-19 pandemic."
