When you think of Cannabis, you might still think that it is criminalized around the world. Well, that simply isn’t true anymore because there have been plenty of places that allow you to smoke it freely without being bothered by the authorities. In 1996, California was the first of the states within the US to pass a law allowing people to have cannabis in their possession and smoke it freely. This law was for medical marijuana and not every day consumption. After California pioneered the acceptance of medical cannabis, there were 28 additional states that enacted similar cannabis laws allowing people to use cannabis for medical reasons. Additionally, the District of Columbia, Guam and Puerto Rico jumped on board and made their own laws allowing people to smoke cannabis for medical reasons.

In total, there are 29 states within the US, the District of Columbia, Guam and Puerto Rico that are now allowing people to smoke medical cannabis if they are in need of it. Of course you would have to go into a physician or doctor and get a check up to figure out if you actually need medical cannabis in order to start smoking it. You aren’t allowed to just have marijuana on your person and smoke it because you have a cough, that’s still against the cannabis law. Once approved and given your medicinal marijuana card, you would be able to go to specific dispensaries and purchase cannabis. The cannabis law specifically says that you need to purchase from specific dispensaries and not someone on the street, a dealer, in order to still be within the law. The only way to still obtain medical cannabis without going to a dispensary is to grow it yourself, which needs a license to do so, but can be better for you since it will likely save money compared to purchasing at a dispensary.
