Comedian Shows How Easy It Is to Get a Medical Marijuana Card in California

Anyone who's ever been to California knows how prevalent marijuana is. It seems like nearly every block has a dispensary or a doctor advertising marijuana prescriptions. But is it really so simple to acquire marijuana in California?

Comedian Ross Everett decided to put California's marijuana laws to the test. He went to a doctor's office that advertises medicinal cannabis prescriptions and documented just how easy it is to get one.

Of course, it'll get even easier in four months when California legalizes recreational marijuana. Then you won't even need to go through all the hassle of getting a prescription. You'll just need to be 18-years-old. But that would be a far less interesting YouTube video.

Derived from the part of the cannabis plant that doesn't get you “high” like THC, cannabidiol (CBD) is typically used for health reasons instead of for recreational purposes, and has been found to be especially useful for treating symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. A challenging neurodegenerative disorder, Parkinson’s causes a combination of motor and non-motor symptoms — such as tremors, weakness, stiffness, dizziness, anxiety and sleeplessness — that affect daily life. CBD, typically taken in oil form, has the potential to relieve these symptoms, improving sleep, reducing inflammation and more, which can profoundly help the more than 10 million people across the world suffering.
