Ok, I want to make sure that I get this straight before I give up trying to get a marijuana prescription. I am a college student in Los Angeles, but I live in Illinois. I have prescription meds for anxiety, and documented problems with intense anxiety and sleep problems. I know of a place in Santa Monica that I could take my documents to that could give me a recommendation for medicinal marijuana, but I have one problem. I AM NOT A RESIDENT OF CALIFORNIA. I live on campus, so I do not have any utility bills or rent payments to show that I am a resident of california, but I do spend most of the year in CA. All I have is my mailing address at school. I would be willing to take my recommendation straight to a dispensary without getting a card if this is possible but I'm not sure that it is. SHOULD I GIVE UP? Is it impossible for me to get marijuana from one of the dispensaries. Thanks a lot for the help and let me know if I left out any details that would effect my elegibility.
