Long Beach is one of the most densely populated cities in the Greater Los Angeles metropolitan area and the 36th most populous in the United States. Initially, the city was called Wilmore City, but residents themselves voted to change the name to Long Beach, dedicating the name to the long and picturesque beaches on the Pacific coast.
The city actively supports the state policy regarding the recreational and medical use of cannabis — one of the most famous activists is Snoop Dogg, who actively supports the full legalization of marijuana in the city and state.
In our article, we will talk about the main provisions of the city’s policy regarding the use of marijuana for medical purposes, as well as how to get the official recommendation for the purchase of cannabis in pharmacies and specialized dispensaries.

The city has actively supported the legalization of marijuana for the past 30 years. In 2011, the city administration decided to close specialized mobile dispensaries specializing in the sale of medical cannabis. Since then, marijuana can only be bought at special points of sale for psychoactive cannabis or at licensed pharmacies, while mobile dispensaries continue to operate on semi-legal rights. The state administration explained the general ban on dispensaries that they were allegedly the front of active sales of illegal traffickers. But in actual fact this turned out to be a wrong decision — part of the city’s residents began buying marijuana directly from drug dealers, ignoring the specialized pharmacies and legal points of sale. Already a few months after the ban, the population of the city won a lawsuit that claimed the illegality of this decision, in particular with respect to people with disabilities who use medical cannabis to relieve the symptoms of age-related diseases and ease chronic pain.
After the adoption of the official California Proposition 64, any business engaged in the cultivation and sale of marijuana for medical and recreational purposes was completely legalized in the city — this happened in June 2018. After that, specialized clinics continue to function in the city, are taxed and amenable to adjusting their activities on a civil basis, while the legality of their work remains in question.
Among other provisions of the law SB420 we can separately note the following:

The best option for the legal purchase of medical cannabis in pharmacies or specialized MMJ mobile dispensaries — registration of the official recommendation from the doctor and the subsequent issue of a plastic MMIC (Medical Marijuana Identification Card) card.

Most medical marijuana varieties contain an increased amount of CBD with a reduced concentration of psychoactive THC. This optimizes the effect of marijuana in the medical plan — increases the relaxing and analgesic properties, while reducing the characteristic for psychoactive marijuana “stoner” effect, which is characterized by a certain amount of inhibition of the psychomotor functions of the body.
Many scientific kinds of research testify in favor of the fact that CBD has anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antipsychotic properties. In this regard, doctors hope that this substance will help pharmaceutical companies in the development of effective drugs against a variety of disorders and diseases, accompanied by similar symptoms.
The list of such diseases includes, but is not limited, to such pathological conditions:
So far, there are no full-fledged CBD-based drugs to combat these disorders, but numerous patients claim that the substance really helps them relieve and even completely get rid of the symptoms.
At the moment, given the scarcity of choice of medicines based on CBD, the best solution would be to issue an appropriate permit to receive medical cannabis or to issue an MMJ card. In addition to regular smoking marijuana, at the points of sale throughout the state, you can find special oils or fluids for use with a vaporizer that saves the body from the negative effects of marijuana smoke.
