Right now, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with most reasonable measures being taken to control it’s spread, Medical Marijuana Treatment Centers (MMTC), deemed essential, have had to change their ways of conducting business and providing medicine. Gloved and masked, people working in MMTC’s are taking steps to keep patients and themselves safe. Currently, you won’t find crowded waiting rooms, patients sitting shoulder or standing a foot apart. Rather, the current practice seems to be curbside pickup or delivery only. Since we don't know when or if MMTC’s will return to walk-in business, it is important to know how to navigate through this.
While medical marijuana patients can drive up to purchase their medicine with curbside service, this practice can prove to be tedious and time consuming. Not just waiting in line so to speak, but also being bypassed by patients who ordered ahead of time. Being able to order your medicine online, through an app, or by telephone makes curbside service much more time efficient and convenient. Just the same, if you do order your medicine by telephone or other electronic means, there is also the option of delivery, which is largely being offered for free during this pandemic. Regardless of how you fulfill your needs during his time, rest assured, our MMTC professionals are maintaining the highest levels of safety and professionalism.
The good news is that MMTC’s remain an essential business and that medical marijuana patients can receive their medication without disruption. The procedure for patient verification or validation is the same, you must present your medical marijuana card when picking up your medicine. For those who have always used delivery, for the most part, nothing is different. For those who previously ordered and picked up, and those used to just walking in, things are a little different now, but as we know, many things are different now in the time of this pandemic. With patience and flexibility, we will get through this.
