Medical Marijuana Card Privacy

Despite its increasing legality, many people who live in states with legalized medical marijuana worry about their privacy. Because marijuana is still federally illegal, employers can technically fire medical marijuana card holders. Having a card means that you can legally purchase cannabis from a collective or dispensary, but it doesn’t necessarily protect you from every law, such as DUI laws and employment rights.

In order to understand your medical marijuana card privacy, it’s important to understand the layers of privacy protection. Depending on the state you’re living in, there are different methods for obtaining legal medical marijuana. When obtaining a doctor’s recommendation, you are protected under HIPAA (the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act). This means that your medical records, along with anything you tell your doctor, are completely private.

For those purchasing marijuana through a collective or dispensary, most stores are required to ask for a driver’s license and social security number. In these cases, your information is protected by state law. Although dispensaries have been raided in the past, law enforcement has yet to use their records to incriminate anybody. In states such as California that allow residents to obtain a state medical marijuana card, government employees are required by law to protect your information. There are heavy fines in place to prevent state workers from illegally accessing the records database. The federal government can legally access these state databases, but to date, they have not.

Who Benefits from Medical Marijuana?

There’s no denying the numerous benefits of medical marijuana. Research shows that marijuana provides relief for people with:

  • Arthritis
  • Chronic Pain
  • Glaucoma
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • PTSD
  • Nausea
With about 1.2 million card carriers in the US, medical marijuana is growing in popularity. 29 states and Washington DC have legalized marijuana, and many others are pending similar legislation. As medical marijuana becomes more ubiquitous, so does the need to remove its odors. Healthcare facilities strive to maintain cleanliness for their patients, and synthetic odor removers leave a chemical scent that can irritate sensitive noses. Businesses also don’t want odors to drive away clients or customers.

Many Individual users do not want their home and clothes smelling like cannabis. Despite its widespread use, the skunky smell of marijuana still carries a stigma. Those who use cannabis for medication should not have to deal with the anxiety of covering up the smell. Patients should be able to reap the benefits of marijuana without worrying about maintaining their privacy.
