There are times when some of us need to travel to California (for business or pleasure) and during those times, you don’t want to be without your medication. Recently, I went to Los Angeles for a convention and I decided to see how hard it would be to get a California Medical Marijuana card and stay medicated while I was out of town. It took me less than five minutes. Here’s how I did it:



While I was stuck in Chicago overnight, I went to a website called The process was simple. I filled out the information on my qualifying conditions and uploaded a picture of my I.D. This site, like many like it, had a fee to see the doctor, so I submitted my card information for $39.

Within 15 minutes, I got a phone call from a doctor where we discussed my anxiety and I disclosed that I actually have a medical marijuana card issued by another state. The doctor said “Okay. Well, since you have a card already from the other state, I’m going to go ahead and issue you one from California as well that’s good for a year.” That was it. I was on the phone with the doctor less than five minutes and I was approved.

One common misconception is that you need a California I.D. to get a California medical marijuana card. I submitted a picture of my passport and was still approved. Based off of this, however, my doctor informed me that it would be harder for me to get into a physical dispensary without a California I.D., but I could use the card with delivery services no problem. I didn’t test this while I was on my trip, but it’s something I will test in the future.

Overall, my experience with (and it’s associated delivery site couldn’t have been simpler. I was able to get the medicine I needed and not miss a beat. If you want to try this service (and also get a free $20 toward your first purchase), use my sign up link

Also, the California Medical Marijuana cards work in Vegas. Take that how you will.
