A revolution is occuring right now!  As of today, 16 states in the USA have legalized the medicinal use of marijuana.  Yes, you need to be 'recommended' this alternative medicine by  a licensed  physician, but the fact that it is occuring is astounding.  This can only be compared to the end of alcohol prohibition in the 1930's.  The government and science are begining to realize the true benefits (medicinal, economical, and cultural) that legalizing the use of medicinal marijuana has on society.  

Federally the use of marijuana is still illegal.  Although, President Obama has advised the DEA to focus it's efforts on other areas and to leave medicinal marijuana matters up to the state level.  The states have spoken and one-by-one the bills are being approved and the use of medicinal marijuana is becoming legal on the state level. 

With this new area comes much uncertainty as well as much opportunity.  Most patients, caregivers, dispensaries, and other cannabusinesses feel that they are operating in a grey area and have many questions about how to operate.  If you find yourself in this situation, make sure to secure all your proper documentation, licensing and insurance.  Talk to an expert in this industry to make sure you're being guided down the right path.
