QUALIFYING CONDITIONS FOR MEDICAL MARIJUANA

Qualified patients and their primary caregivers may possess no more than eight ounces of marijuana, and six mature (or 12 immature) cannabis plants. However, patients may possess larger amounts of medical marijuana when recommended by a 420 doctor, as per Senate Bill 420.
