I'll be moving on wednesday to Los Angeles, about 3 miles outside of santa monica. I'm curious about obtaining a medical card. I currently live in New Jersey, and here smoking weed has become part of my every day life. It has come to the point where i cannot even fall asleep if I dont smoke prior. Nor do i feel hungry throughout the day without a little bud. I'm wondering if this is a condition where i'd be able to obtain a card, rather than hit the beaches for some illegaly obtained medicine. In no way am i in pain, but weed sure as hell helps fix many issues i come across daily. Also, I've noticed stores on Venice beach claiming they can give you a recommendation. Are these legitimate? I've seen them attract many tourists who most likely have no medical need for cannabis... Thanks guys!
