Paying Too Much For Recreational Pot?

In Arizona you pay 16% less for marijuana if you have your Medical Marijuana Card. If you spend $20/week on cannabis, it pays to have your medical card if you are qualified.


Cost Breakdown

The current cost of a Medical Marijuana Card at our clinic can be found here. The cost of a Medical Marijuana Card consists of 2-3 fees.


$150 Arizona's Application Fee (discounted for SNAP recipients)

$100 Doctor Visit Fee

$25 Physical Exam Fee (if needed)

$275 Total


Assuming you pay $250 - $275 every 2 years to have a medical marijuana card, if you purchase and average of $75 worth of product a month, the card pays for itself in tax savings. We will now break down the math.

$75 x 16% = $12 x 24 months = $288


If you spend $200/month on marijuana, the card will save you $768 over two years.


As you can see from the math above, the card pays for itself. The financial savings is one of the top reasons to continue to have your medical marijuana card now that recreational marijuana is legal.
