CLEVELAND - Amanda's labored steps around her home are some of the most obvious symptoms of multiple sclerosis, which she's been battling since her diagnosis in 2011. Back then, Amanda was in a lot of pain but she didn't want anything to do with marijuana of any kind.
Here are steps to be able to buy medical marijuana:
Doctors certified to recommend medical marijuana can enter a patient onto the list.
After the state confirms who they are, patients and caregivers will get a Patient and Caregiver Registry Card.
Patients will eventually get medical marijuana from dispensaries, once they open.
But even then, Amanda says she's worried about security.
"Everybody is going to know we're going into these establishments with cash and what we're coming out with," said Amanda.
She says she's not very mobile because of her multiple sclerosis, making her an easy target. Amanda says she's interested in some kind of delivery service and thinks that would have to help other patients who also don't get around very well.
