    So I lived in (my van) in San Diego last year and had an mmj card, I don't remember how I swung it with a Virginia id...I think I had a piece of mail? Anyway, that card is expired and I'm having trouble getting a new one. Can I go to a homeless day center and get help with it? I don't have my birth certificate or passport, etc.

    My other thought was to go to slab city and see what kind of action I could find there... just thinking out loud...

    There's tons of places in the bay who will write em for pretty much anybody. It's been a few years but the old trick with an out of state id was to go to an actual doctor in the bay and get a written recommendation. The written rec acts the same as a card and doesn't require that you have a cali id. All ya'll who don't know what a MMJ card is must've been hiding under a rock for the last 10 yrs. It's an extremely common term east and west.

    Really? I've never heard anyone ever refer to it that way. Especially since MMJ as an acronym would have to be from the letters Medical MariJuana card, which is not how a traditional acronym is built.

    Back in the ancient 80s, I know we sometimes referred to pot as "MJ". Maybe that's what it is derived from. Slang is pretty liquid and takes on weird forms over time.

    Thank you, I knew I wasn't making it up, lol. And yeah, I was in San Francisco when I got my letter of rec. in 2015. I'm actually glad I wasn't able to get the card cuz I found a guy on the beach who hooked me up for a whole lot less than what I woulda paid in a dispensary.

    I guess it's really more a CA, OR, MA and ME term but I know I've seen it used in MT and CO as well. It was required terminology for using the Humboldt Craigslist when I lived out there. 215 card used to be the more common term in Cali but that's due to phase out with the new bill.

    Wow OK I apologize. You are very sensitive. Nobody is attacking you. Smoke and take a chill pill. IMA ignore you now though to avoid further conflict. No time for drama.

    You'll need a CA ID for a Med card, but those are easy enough to get. They don't require proof of address, just an address.

    Why did @Sirius dislike this post? OP just gave the answer asked for?

    From my experience obtaining a MMJ card, yes that is standard terminology, you need a permanent in state ID in New Mexico. I am surprised you swung it without one in California. Here they are free, but the doctorusually charges $200 and due to beaurocratics, most people get it for PTSD because it cannot be disproven and the diagnostic criteria solely relies on what you say you have. Trying to get it for other conditions is asking for more hoops to jump through, so the medical cannabis stores recommend getting it for PTSD although this has caused backlash from the state. This is all just New Mexico, our medical cannabis program uas been around for a while now like California's.
