Until recently, marijuana was considered to be a drug that was used by drug addicts to attain an intoxicating high, and therefore, the use of marijuana was banned by all the federate courts of every state in the United States of America. However, recently, a few medical research was conducted and it was discovered that marijuana had a number of medical benefits as well that could be made use of in order to treat a large number of medical conditions and diseases such as Glaucoma, cancer, Hepatitis B among others. That is the reason why the use of marijuana has been made legal by the federal courts of a number of states in the United States of America, and the medical marijuana program of the Rhode Island has allowed the patients to use this drug for the treatment of various diseases. However, in order to use this drug, patients have to avail a prescription from a Medical Marijuana License RI, which claims that the patient is allowed to use the drug for their treatment.
Now, getting a permission to use the drug requires a series of procedures that have to be completed by the patients. Firstly, they have to have their medical condition diagnosed by a medical marijuana doctor in the state of Rhode Island. If the doctor, on the basis of the diagnosis, feels that the patient needs to consume marijuana for the treatment of their medical condition or disease, the Marijuana doctor RI will prescribe the drug to the patient. After the patient has been able to obtain the prescription of the drug, they will have to apply to the state for a license that will allow them to consume the drug legally. After the license has been obtained, the patient will be provided with a Medical Marijuana Card that can be shown to any pharmacy by the patient and they will be provided with the quantity of the drug as they have been prescribed with. This Medical Marijuana Card will, henceforth, be seen as the license of the patient to consume the drug as prescribed by the Marijuana doctor Rhode Island. If the patients have the Medical Marijuana Card, they will not be detained by the local authorities for obtaining, carrying or consuming marijuana.
