OMMP or Recreational Use?
With the recreational use of Cannabis well under way, some people question whether they are wanting a recreational use experience or if they have a greater need for an OMMP Medicinal use. Here are just a few questions to ask yourself: Do I have a qualifying medical condition to obtain my OMMP card? Do I currently take any prescription or over the counter medications for my qualifying condition? Am I interested in an alternative medication option? Do I take medication on a daily basis? Have I tried Recreational Cannabis to reduce symptoms of a medical condition and have found relief, but need to have access to a more regular prescription type quantity and potency? Am I using Recreational Cannabis to alleviate my medical symptoms but I cannot continue to afford paying taxes for my medicine? Do I want to grow my own medicine, but can't because I live in an area that does not allow Recreational Cannabis plants to be grown?
If you answered yes to any one of these questions, you're more than likely an individual who is seeking Cannabis for it's Medicinal use and will benefit greatly by obtaining your OMMP card.
