MMMP Certifications

In 1996, California became the first state to legalize the use of marijuana for medical purposes, and since then, 20 more states have followed suit. Medical marijuana became legal in Michigan in 2008 for individuals over the age of 18 who suffer from a variety of chronic illnesses and diseases. But to legally purchase medical marijuana, you must become certified and get your medical marijuana ID card.

Medical Marijuana Benefits and Usage

Studies show that medical marijuana can help ease nausea and muscle spasms. It can increase the appetite, help control seizures, relieve anxiety and inflammation, and slow the progression of glaucoma, among other benefits.

Medical marijuana is typically consumed through smoking or vaporizing, through edibles like cookies or candies, or taken as a liquid extract.
