    After hearing countless stories of the easiness of getting your card(in the Bay Area, CA) I decided to get it myself. I chose a clinic in Berkeley and even saw someone on Reddit saying it was a short process with no records needed. Once I got there and elaborated on my sleeping problems, my diet, how it effects me, bla bla. I said I never discussed it with my primary doctor because I've always treated it via weed, so I had no records. The MMJ doctor responded by giving me alternative methods such as meditation and even wrote down a few relaxation websites. He seemed very hesitant and said weed was addictive and iffy for those under 21 because of brain development issues (I'm 18). He then flipped the switch on me and said I could maybe take edibles or invest in a vaporizer. He wasn't really concrete with a yes or no. Confused , I almost walked out expecting to have not gotten it. The next thing you know, I'm getting my picture taken. The receptionist tells me within 2 months that they would revoke my card if I don't provide medical records. I've told numerous people about it and they've never heard anything like it. I just find it weird that if they doubted me, they wouldn't of given it to me in the first place. Are they just saying this as a formality?

  2. Never heard of that to be honest. Maybe someone from California will see this and elaborate.

    The recommendation by the doctor you saw does count as a medical record, and if the clinic did not submit that to the state for you then that's something you might have to do on your own.

    It's California though, if you've got a recommendation you're pretty much golden.
