Legal Status of Medical Marijuana in the United States
The United States have a wide range of laws regarding the status of marijuana in America. In the 50 states, only 28 states officially have some form of legalization for medical marijuana in the country. Within those, several get as high as having recreational marijuana legalized. The first country to legalize medical marijuana was made by the state of California in 1996 and since then other states have followed.
While states have legalized medical marijuana, the federal government has made its stance very clear. At the federal level, the country has marijuana listed as a controlled substance that is officially illegal for people to sell, consume or carry. It is generally illegal. This has brought conflict between states that had legalized medical marijuana and the federal government in the past where dispensaries could be raided even though the state had the substance legal. Since 2009, the federal government has changed its approach and would not spend resources prosecuting people who have serious illnesses.
The future of medical marijuana is still uncertain, but the number of people who support the legalization of it is slowly increasing. In 2005, the support for legalizing marijuana was only 38%, while a recent Gall-up poll has shown that the support is up to 58%. The support has been showing a steady increase over time and will likely be tending towards a change in federal policy within the next couple of decades. Given that during the last election alone 3 more states legalized the use of medical marijuana and it has only been 20 years since California made it legal.
While the state laws have made the use of medical marijuana legal, the creation of dispensaries is a municipal matter. Each city, town or county is responsible for the laws the guide the creation of dispensaries at a local level. Currently, there are 17 states, of the 28 that have legalized marijuana for medical purposes, that have dispensaries. The dispensaries are based upon a set up similar to a pharmacy. Patients bring a prescription to the location where they can purchase, but not consume marijuana for their condition. These locations are not FDA certified, as they are not listed with the federal government, due to the fact that the substance is illegal at the federal level.
So, while you may find a dispensary using Dispensary Near Me, the location will be regulated by local and state laws and not federal.
