The official paper copy of your medical cannabis recommendation is what you legally need to access dispensaries and defend yourself against unjust prosecution by the law. The medical cannabis ID card is simply a more convenient proof of your patient-status and contains the information needed for anyone to verify it, including a police officer. However, we recommend keeping a paper copy of your recommendation in your car at all times just in case. Most patients choose to purchase an extra copy of their recommendation at checkout for this exact reason.
