Limits & Requirements
California currently allows 2 types of Medical Use patients. To be a medical marijuana patient in the State of California, you must either obtain a:
a physician’s recommendation, also known as a Doctor's Recommendation or Doctor's Referral
identification card issued by the Department of Health, also known as an MMIC
Is there a difference in an MMIC and Doctor's Rec?
Yes there is! Let's break it down...
Where to Purchase
Marijuana can be purchased from a storefront or a delivery service, depending on local laws. California has placed time restrictions on what times legal retailers can dispense cannabis goods from 6am to 10pm. We here at California Green Cross deliver cannabis from the hours of 8am to 10pm to the greater Sacramento Area! See our delivery zone map if you want to check if you are within our delivery zone! Don't fall into our zone? No worries, the Bureau of Cannabis Control (BCC) has a licensed dispensary search available for all cannabis consumers of California!

"Weed is legal now, I can light up a blunt anywhere I want"
Just because marijuana is legal in California, does not mean you can consume it wherever you want! Just like alcohol, cannabis can not be consumed in public places. As a matter of fact, smoking, eating or ingesting marijuana is still illegal to consume in public. Marijuana must be consumed in a private place.
