Jeff Smith provides instructions on getting a medical marijuana prescription. According to Jeff there are a lot of places you can go. Check your local alternative newspaper as one option. Also, not living in California is tough. You have to be a resident of a medical marijuana state. You have to provide proof of residency by showing a drivers license or some other form of picture id. If you live in California, you can get a statement from your doctor that says they certify that you need the prescription for your illness. The document also needs to have a seal stamped on it and you need to bring the original every time. Please keep in mind, the recommendation from your doctor is $150.00. Once its been recommended, you can go to any collective in California to get Medical Marijuana.
