Proposition 215, approved in California in 1996, makes cannabis use for medical purposes legal in Woodland. Since then, the state has evolved its laws regarding the medical use of cannabis. Some of the key regulations pertaining to medical cannabis in Woodland under Proposition 215 include the following:
Qualifying Conditions: Not all conditions are approved to be treated with medical cannabis. The state lists certain conditions for which a patient may be eligible to use medical cannabis. Some of these conditions include cancer, chronic pain, glaucoma, HIV/AIDS, and epilepsy. In order to be eligible for medical cannabis use, patients must obtain a recommendation from a California-licensed physician. Also, patients must be permanent residents of Woodland or other California jurisdictions to qualify to receive medical cannabis recommendations under the state medical cannabis program
Possession Limits: Patients may possess up to 8 ounces of dried cannabis or more if their doctors recommend it. Additionally, they may cultivate up to 6 mature cannabis plants or 12 non-flowering cannabis plants or more if their physicians recommend it. Personal cultivation of cannabis by a qualified patient or primary caregiver is prohibited outdoors
Medical Marijuana Cards: Woodland patients can obtain medical marijuana cards under the state’s medical marijuana identification card program (MMICP). The card is optional but protects patients from arrest for possessing high cannabis amounts
To obtain a medical marijuana card in Woodland, you must be an eligible medical marijuana patient as defined under the California medical cannabis program. Under the program, you must reside in a California city and have an approved condition to be an eligible patient.
To receive approval to use medical cannabis to treat your condition, you must first schedule an appointment with a physician who is licensed and registered with the California Medical Board. The healthcare provider will assess your medical condition and determine your eligibility for a medical marijuana recommendation. If the practitioner determines medical cannabis is appropriate for your condition, you will be issued a medical cannabis recommendation.
