How Does a Person Become an Authorized Medical Marijuana Provider?

The rules for becoming an authorized medical marijuana provider vary from state to state. Some states allow for the operation of medical marijuana dispensaries, clubs, cooperatives, or clinics, which provide marijuana to approved patients. However, some states, including Hawaii, do not allow the operation of medical marijuana dispensaries.

In states where dispensaries are allowed, there are specific regulations on where they are allowed to operate and who may operate them. Some cities have placed out-right bans on the establishment of medical marijuana dispensaries.

California law provides that approved patients and their primary caregivers may associate in order to collectively cultivate and distribute marijuana for medical purposes and may not be charged with a crime solely for doing so.
