The first time I went to the medical marijuana dispensary, I felt like I was in one of the outdated films about gangsters and speakeasies, to get into a speakeasy, you had to know the secret word for the night, and you had to be a member.
They were actually careful about who was let in and when, however no one wanted to be raided by the feds or police, because they sold alcohol in the speakeasy, and they were during the time of prohibition.
The medical marijuana dispensary had me hold up my medical marijuana ID card so they could look at it before allowing you into the inner lobby. There you presented your ID card and asked a series of questions that I only told to the people who gave me the medical marijuana ID card! When they were done grilling me, I heard another buzzer and was allowed into the actual marijuana dispensary. The smell of marijuana gave me a buzz, and I had bought none yet, then it surprised me at all the hush-hush attitude and the grilling I got before being allowed to come in. I had to show my medical ID card before I could talk to the pharmacist, and before I could purchase my medical marijuana, then before I left, I talked to the guard sitting by the door. I said I thought medical marijuana was legal, and he nodded and said it was, however unless you had a tploy medical condition that is recognized by the state, you can’t legally use marijuana. I think that means fake IDs won’t work here like they do at the state store.
