If you are in one of the lucky states to have passed legislation on medical marijuana, here is what you should do.

  1. Go see a doctor, get a patient card…This will protect you legally.
  2. This status of patient will allow you to legally grow weed.  You can get to know other patients, and act as their caregiver to up the quantity of plants you are allowed to grow.
  3. Develop a relationship with a dispensary, hang out there, buy a gram.  Bring a sample of your own stuff, and see if you can sell to a dispensary.
  4. Then you are legally making cold hard cash from the WEED business!
