Great news! Arizona voters legalized marijuana for recreational use in the November 2020 election. Now you may be asking yourself, "Why should I pay to get a medical marijuana card?". For many people who consume cannabis, the answer is it will SAVE YOU A LOT OF MONEY!

Top Reasons You Should Still Get a Medical Marijuana Card

Save Money

Recreational marijuana users pay an extra 16% sales tax. It is waived for cardholders.

Spend $100/month on pot, you would see tax savings of $384 with your medical card.

$200/month = $768 in tax savings

$400/month = $1536 in tax savings

Specials for Medical Patients

Medical marijuana cardholders receive the best specials that dispensaries offer. Daily specials and first time patient offers are typically for cardholders only. This can save you thousands of dollars.

Tax Deductible

Arizona considers the cost of your medication to be a medical expense. Keep your receipts!

Job Protection

Having a medical marijuana card provides employment protections that do not apply to recreational users. This applies both to current employees and job seekers.

Your employer can fire you for a positive drug test if you do not have your medical card.

Less Restrictions

Arizona limits the THC allowed in marijuana edibles available at recreational dispensaries. The amount of marijuana and concentrates you are allowed to posses is also lower without possessing your medical card.

No Age Restrictions

Patients of any age are allowed to obtain a medical marijuana card. Marijuana usage for adults under the age of 21 is illegal in Arizona without a medical card.
