Re: vegas help

If you are trying to get a recommendation, which is your certificate stating you are a medical marijuana patient, then 150 is about the going rate. Make sure you are paying for info and not the actual recommendation. If so, you can do your own investigating. 420 is the best place to find all the information you need on medical marijuana.

Can you even get a recommendation in Nevada?

Re: vegas help

yes you can here we are a med state, the 150 im talking about is for someones pocket, not the fee for the dr., and yes the dr. is 150 here. so why would i pay someone for the hook up or info, charging is not compassion it's greed....just my thoughts:3:

Re: vegas help

If I could pay $150+ in my state just to not have to worry about local police I would. We have a bill, but it hasn't made it out of committee. Maybe next year.

It was a lot closer to being passed when they dropped it from 3 to 1 for personal use.

But I have noticed every strip mall in Las Vegas has a "Smoke Shop" on it now. So maybe it will pass someday.

Re: vegas help

medical marijuana is definitely approved and legal in vegas...
as far as i know, any doctor should be able to give you a recommendation...
pickup the phone book and start making some calls...
i hear the whole medical marijuana scene there is still pretty much underground...
they are slowly emerging into the light...
but with the feds going nuts here in la, shutting down co-ops, they are a bit shy to move forward so quickly...
we will have a vegas med forum here soon and will post info for you...

Re: vegas help

yes it does, call Southwest airlines and tell them you are thinking of booking a flight from CALI TO VEGAS. Tell them that you are a medicinal marijuana patient and how you can bring your meds. I have done this twice! My neighbor does it alll the time. In LAX airport.....all you have to do....as long as you are going to a state that has the law passed they say. So their exact instructions were " If you are going to Las Vegas, then make sure to put your meds in your luggage on top of everything with your medical rec on top! Hope this benefits some cali smokers flyin to vegas! If your going there dont worry....just make sure your rec is on top....done this many times as well as my neighbor.......LoL.....and if you do not think thats right then feel free to call and ask, those were my telephone instructions from the airline!

Re: vegas help

i'd like to see a few people call the airlines and report back here in this thread what they said... i find this extremely hard to believe, given federal law...
someone confirm this please... and not someone with only a few posts, please.
thanks.

Re: vegas help

Then maybe some people would actually be able to believe it and have proof so they do not have to worry about scoring meds in vegas!

Re: vegas help

I too find it hard to believe that Federal Law permits this. The Federal Government has a zero tolerance policy to mmj, and the airline would clearly be breaking Federal Statutes if it permitted transit of mmj meds. Airports come under Federal laws, so I expect any airline employee who told you to stick your meds on top of your bags with your medical rec would get the sack. I doubt the official policy of the airline would be anything different from what I have just said.

Re: vegas help

I was just on the site, you can only write to them or call them guys. I was going to ask and post it on here, but I guess your going to have to call for your own piece of mind.

Medical Marijuana User Allowed To Fly With Pot

Since 1982, stockbroker Irvin Rosenfeld has had the federal government's permission to use marijuana to treat pain from a chronic bone condition. In 2001, Delta Airlines refused to allow Rosenfeld to board a flight from Florida to Washington, D.C. because he wanted to take his marijuana with him. Rosenfeld complained to the Department of Transportation that Delta was discriminating against him by failing to accommodate his disability.

In a victory for advocates of medical marijuana, the DOT agreed that Delta should have allowed Rosenfeld to board the plane. The DOT dismissed Rosenfeld's claim, however, ruling that Delta had reason to doubt Rosenfeld's entitlement to use the drug since so few people are allowed to possess marijuana. Rosenfeld plans to appeal the denial of a remedy.
