We’re often asked: With adult-use/recreational sales now available, is it worth paying for a card? For many of our patients, the answer is yes!
First off, purchases will cost you less. Cardholders are exempt from state and local taxes, which could mean up to 20% in savings every time you visit Berkshire Roots. You’ll also have more buying power as a cardholder being able to purchase and possess up to 10 ounces of flower every 60 days. Non-cardholders can only buy and possess 1 ounce at a time.
Getting Your Medical Marijuana Card
If you do not have a MA medical card, and feel that you would qualify to become a medical patient, the Cannabis Control Commission is now authorizing Certifying Health Care Providers to certify prospective patients for the Massachusetts Medical Use of Marijuana Program through the use of a telehealth waiver.
The following locations offer telehealth certifications. See individual websites for more information.
