I am currently trying to get my card though a place in the Portland area, Mamas. I fell as though they have so many people trying to get cards it has turned into a joke. Some if not most of these clinics thrive on getting you in the door and the times for even seeing a Dr. is a joke. I have had my records turned in to the place and they never even called me, I had to call them to find out the hold up and was told that they needed more info. When I asked why no one had called me to tell me their reply was they were just busy. Then to find out that every time that I have something sent in that they request, they put me back at the bottom of the list. I have seen people get their cards the same day. I am going to try the THC foundation. A friend of mine who got his card there said they are fast and easy to work with. Does anyone have any experience with them? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Having had to call them to remind them that my faxes are there is a joke. Being put back on the bottom of the list is a joke also when they are the ones that want more info. I will be honest, out of every time I do call. I usually pray that I do get Pauline, she has been very helpful. It just sucks to be in pain and every time I get told they need more info. I have been broke my whole life so to be able to see a Dr is something I am not able to afford. I usually have to wait till the pain gets unbearable then head to the ER, only to be told there is nothing they can do unless I decide to have my heart opened up and either fixed or replaced. Neither is an option that I am willing to do with the chances of living at best at 13% from the specialist from the Cleveland clinic.I have been so against drugs my whole life till a friend gave me an edible without telling me what it was. Yes I know what he did was wrong, but This is the only reason why I would even try for a card. I can honestly say that I had the best sleep I have had in nearly 3 years.
marijuana was just legal, right? I can tell you this......Bring your medical records BY HAND, and show your face around there. They really DO care about patients.....Take my word for it.....stop faxing stuff to them (hoping it got there) and bring it to them in person. You will find that if you make the effort, they will also.
I am not saying that your faxes being lost is OK, I am merely reminding folks that faxing medical records, you can only guess at whether they recieved the exact records you requested. Bring them by hand, and if that does not work, I would say you need more proof of your ailment.
I have 2 appointments a year. I have no insurance. I make sure my paperwork is in order.
I think if you did have a problem at MAMA's, you should let them know, so they can address the issue. The reason I still donate meds down there is that they have taken such good care of me, and the other folks I have talked to down there.
I always like to see reliable folks in the marijuana industry. We definitely want to escape some of the assumptions about pot users.
From my perspective in Scandinavia, I know almost nothing about legal-for-medical-use (in some states).
Still, I can't escape the feeling that the medical card has been played too hard, and now we're starting to get blowback instead of further legalization for everyone. I hope we focus more on recreational use, and legal use of the plant as we wish - without needing any joke-cards (or "stasi-cards").
But I salute you, you've come a long way, which might be a reason I'm wrong about the blowback.
Where I live even seeds are illegal, and the only way for a complete legal status for all usages of the cannabis plant, for all our citizens, is that it happens in the rest of the world first - especially the USA.
