Visiting a dispensary to purchase cannabis is nothing like the unsavory experiences depicted by people without prior cannabis shopping experiences. Nevertheless, there are specific steps to consider when visiting a cannabis dispensary in Warren. There will likely be a security guard standing at the entrance of a Warren Dispensary waiting to check you in. When you enter, you must show your ID or Michigan Medical Marijuana Card as proof you are authorized to buy cannabis products. You may experience a line at the entrance to the retail area of a dispensary as only a few people are permitted to enter at once. When you get into the dispensing area, you will find a budtender who will be ready to help you through the shopping experience.
If you are at least 21, you are required to present a valid driver's license or another form of government-issued identification. If you are between 18 and 21, a driver's license or state-issued ID and your State of Michigan Medical Marijuana Card will be required. In order to make purchases, you will also need to bring cash with you. You cannot use a credit card since recreational cannabis use is still federally illegal, and your bank will flag such a purchase on a credit card. Due to this non-support from financial institutions, Warren dispensaries typically accept credit cards.
If you are not a cannabis newbie, you likely know what you want when you visit a dispensary. In that case, you may ask the budtenders if they have any new products during your visit. If you are visiting a weed dispensary for the first time, you are advised to know for sure the kind of experience you desire from a potential purchase. The budtender will know which products and strains to recommend based on your provided information.
Note that there is a limit to the amount of cannabis you can purchase from a dispensary. Per state law, you cannot buy more than 71 grams of marijuana with no more than 15 grams of this quantity in concentrated form. Cannabis consumption is recommended for your private residence.

To obtain a medical marijuana card, you must be registered with the Michigan Medical Marijuana Program (MMMP).

If you have one or more of the conditions listed above, you must consult your physician to obtain a written certification that you have a qualifying debilitating condition meeting the criteria listed under the law. The physician must also certify that, in the professional's opinion, you will likely receive palliative or therapeutic benefits from medical marijuana use. Note that your certification is only valid if obtained from a Doctor of Medicine or Doctor of Osteopathy and dated within three months of your application. If you are under 18, you need the consent of your parent or legal guardian and written certifications from two physicians to enroll in the MMMP.
You may complete your registration in the MMMP online or by mail.

You will also be required to pay a $40 application fee. You may complete the payment via electronic check or credit card. For more details about the MMMP application process, see the Apply for Patient Only Registry Card guideline. Note that if you select "my physician will approve me online," the application will be completed by your certifying physician.
