There are approximately 50 different medical marijuana dispensaries registered in the Boulder area. Medical marijuana is typically used to treat conditions, or side effects that arise from conditions such as chronic pain, seizures, nausea, cancer, glaucoma, HIV/AIDS, muscle spasms, and cachexia. Anyone seeking medical marijuana must see a doctor to get the paperwork required, and there are a number of clinics that work with doctors specializing in medical marijuana. The State then sends a card to the patient when they are accepted onto the registry.
Medical marijuana is made available to patients 35 days after they send in their correct to the State and are approved. Patients are required to keep their paperwork and/or card with them whenever they have medical marijuana with them.
