Please note the following opinion/interpretation is as of November 2016:
With the legalization of recreational use of marijuana under Prop 64, adults 21 years and older will be able to possess and purchase marijuana and related products at dispensaries carrying a state and city permit. As a result, ‘Medical’ marijuana patients under Prop 215 may feel as if it is UNnecessary to remain a patient. However, Prop 215 patients will retain many advantages over recreational users. MMJ Patients will be exempt from all retail sales tax and new local taxes on purchases of marijuana products from dispensaries with a state medical marijuana ID card. Taxes being imposed on growing and selling both medical and non-medical marijuana, including a 15 % exise tax at time of purchase by the consumer. One may consider that taxes saved may be viewed as money which won't be potentially used for abuses by special interests like creation of monopolies, etc... In addition, the quantities of cannabis one may possess can be up to eight ounces in comparison to a recreational user’s one ounce. Cannabis cultivation is not restricted to six plants, but based on medical need or a caregiver’s recommendations. Recreational dispensaries are not available until January 1st, 2018 so patients might still want to consider obtaining one regardless.
Prop 64 became effective on November 2016 with new legal implications. The crime of selling marijuana by a person under 18 years old is punishable by mandatory attendance of drug education or counseling and community service. For adults who are selling marijuana for non-medical purposes is now punishable by up to 4 years in state prison or county jail. Anyone selling cannabis without a license or having gone through the proper bureaucratic channels may be forced to serve up to 6 months in county jail and/or a fine up to $500.
Clearly there are many benefits to having your MMJ recommendation/card, helping you save money, minimizing legal risk and likely creating a better peace of mind.

This location is just a building with a staff member, no doctor. Prices are inconsistent with what's listed on WM. Basically, it's just a front to get a free rec for the adjacent dispensary. Shady business, shady legality, would not get a rec here.
Fast , friendly staff , great experience paid 40 for a year renewals are 30.
1 person thought this review was helpful
honestly if you're a stoner like me you're just looking for the cheapest place to get your rec and this is $35 for new patients & $25 for renewals (from the same Doctor within 30 days of expiration) so that's pretty much the cheapest thing around. I was in and out in 5 minutes
NOTICE TO CONSUMERS: The Compassionate Use Act of 1996 ensures that seriously ill Californians have the right to obtain and use cannabis for medical purposes where medical use is deemed appropriate and has been recommended by a physician who has determined that the person’s health would benefit from the use of medical cannabis. Recommendations must come from an attending physician as defined in Section 11362.7 of the Health and Safety Code. Cannabis is a Schedule I drug according to the federal Controlled Substances Act. Activity related to cannabis use is subject to federal prosecution, regardless of the protections provided by state law.
