Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Card Benefits

Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Benefits

As Pennsylvania remains a non recreational cannabis state, it continues to be more important than ever to get your medical marijuana card in Pennsylvania. Having your medical marijuana card is the only way to legally possess, buy, and consume cannabis in PA. Since cannabis is illegal in Pennsylvania, there are still many benefits for getting your medical cannabis card. Pennsylvania has many Medical Marijuana Benefits once you become a verified patient.

The Pennsylvania medical marijuana program accepts an array of medical conditions including chronic pain, multiple sclerosis, and cancer to name a few. Getting your medical marijuana card can be an easy process with PrestoDoctor.


Without a PA medical cannabis card, you will not be able to access dispensaries. Visiting a dispensary in Pennsylvania is only allowed for medical patients with their medical marijuana certification.

Many people opt to not get their medical card and just buy from a local source, but the problem with this is that you won’t be able to know what you are truly buying since it may not be accurately labeled. All cannabis that comes from a dispensary must sell tested, safe, and accurately labeled products. When you buy from a dispensary, it is a guarantee you are buying safe products. 


Even though Allentown, Lancaster, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Bethlehem, and Erie have decriminalized the possession of small amounts of cannabis, it is still not advised to be caught in possession with cannabis without a medical marijuana card. 

In PA, you can are entitled to possess a 90-day supply of cannabis. 

Legal Protection

Having a medical marijuana card acts as proof to law enforcement. It proves you are a state certified medical marijuana patient who is using cannabis to treat a health condition. Since cannabis is still illegal in Pennsylvania, legal repercussions may still happen if you are in possession of cannabis and without a medical card. 

Age Limit

If you are under 21 years old, you may still be able to use cannabis if you have a qualifying health condition with a doctor’s approval. PrestoDoctor can see patients as young as 18 years old. Across all states, recreational patients must be at least 21 years old to use or possess cannabis. However, medical marijuana patients may be younger than 21. 

Getting your medical marijuana card is one way to use cannabis if you are younger than 21 years old. If you are under 18, a caregiver can apply for a minor patient.
