How To Get A Medical Marijuana Card In Tennessee
2019 Complete Guide
As a resident of the state, the process on how to get a Medical Marijuana Card in Tennessee is as follows:
Currently the path to legal MMJ has not been paved yet, it’s actually one small circle with no entrance or exit. The state law allows for High CBD Low THC cannabis oil for seizure patients once SB 280 came into effect. The bill did not address how patients could obtain the CBD oil as it is not produced in Tennessee and crossing state lines would constitute a violation of both State and Federal laws. What it did address is if a patient is caught with oil by Law Enforcement the patient must produce a Dr authorization and proof of where the CBD oil was purchased. The state recently raided several stores selling Hemp based CBD products. These unlicensed dispensaries selling Hemp CBD Oil and other hemp products continue to pop up and seem to close just as fast.
Possession and cultivation of cannabis both remain illegal. Possession of any amount is a misdemeanor, punishable by one year in jail and up to a $2,500 fine. Cultivation of 10 plants or less is a felony, punishable by one to six years in prison and a $5,000 fine, and the penalties increase exponentially for each additional plant being grown.
