After acquiring my medical marijuana (MMJ) card, I set out to look for dispensaries which were convenient and offered deals. While there are many dispensary options, I struggled to decide which one would suit my needs, commute route, and timings best. I went online and found greenRush.com which welcomed me to shop for cannabis. I decided to give it a try.
What is it about?
This is not a cannabis dealer or seller site. greenRush is a ‘cannabis delivery marketplace’ which connects customers to the dispensaries closest to them. The order is placed to registered, legal dispensaries which then deliver the cannabis to the customer. GreenRush does not only deliver or ship; it serves the purpose of the middleman to help customers with MMJ cards get access to the best deals and the closest dispensaries.
This is a perfect, all-in-one place which not only makes the cannabis shopping experience much easier and more reliable but also offers great deals on cannabis orders through the website. By availing greenRush coupons or by using the greenRush promo code, you can save tons of money and buy more cannabis! That’s what I call a win-win situation.
Currently, you can buy cannabis online through greenRush and get $80 off (code: weedtemple).
The website is fairly new but easy to use and has a clean and comprehensive design. It has one job and does it well! It is registered in San Mateo, California but covers dispensaries across other areas as well. The first step is to let the website locate your position with the click of a button. As soon as you’re located, it will list all the dispensaries, their locations, their timings, and great deals in your area.
After the site lists all the dispensaries and deals, you can then browse the options one by one.
Make an account on greenRush.com with a simple signup form asking for your personal details and your MMJ card. The MMJ card, proof of residency, and other details can be submitted as a photograph; no need to post it! Verification is quick and hassle-free.
If you don’t have a card, greenRush.com facilitates the process by allowing the user to apply for a card online for $39 within 20 minutes via a video call with a registered doctor. You can order without an MMJ card only if your area allows the sale of recreational marijuana. If not, you’ll need to have an MMJ card.
Order the deal you have chosen by selecting it on the site and checking out. The delivery will come straight to your address discreetly through the transportation fleet of the dispensary you chose to buy from. When checking out, use a greenRush coupon code to knock off some bucks from the bill.
In order to get the most bang for your buck, enter the greenRush promo code 2017, which is the greenRush 420 promo code. There is no need to call a representative or any other verification to use a greenRush code (weedtemple). All you need to do is simply enter the greenRush coupon code, and you’re done!
Invite a Bud
A cool feature of the site is the ‘Invite a Bud’ offer. The offer works to connect more and more customers to the greenRush community in order to spread the convenience to as many people as possible. The services of the website are free – you only pay for the cannabis you order – and it’s great to get even more discounts when you bring a friend that orders too. Inviting a bud is a simple process, just like using a greenRush coupon code. You spend $80, and you get $10 every time a friend you brought orders cannabis.
Connect and Enjoy!
You can connect through social media handles, and contact greenRush directly by submitting a question on the website. There is also a user-friendly contact box on the lower right side of the site from where you can contact it and ask any query which hasn’t been addressed in its lengthy FAQ section. Alternatively, you can talk to a representative by calling them on their number.

Ohio is still more than a year away from fully launching the new state program that will oversee medical marijuana use in the state.
But in the 12 months since lawmakers passed and Gov. John Kasich signed the legislation allowing the drug in Ohio, three state agencies and a new panel have been busy finalizing the rules that will control how marijuana is grown, processed, tested and sold.
Here are 10 things you should know about where things stand on medical marijuana in Ohio:
1. The Beginning: HB 523 outlined the process for adopting rules for the cultivation, testing and dispensing of the drug, with three state agencies spearheading the process.
The Department of Commerce is handling the licensing of cultivators, processors and testing laboratories. The state pharmacy board will license retail dispensaries and handle patient and caregiver registrations. The state medical board will issue certificates for physicians who will recommend use of the drug.
2. Progress to Date: The Medical Marijuana Advisory Committee had its first meeting in November, around the same time that initial rules were released for public comment.
To date, more than 30 rules have been adopted, mostly related to cultivators, the groups that will be growing medicinal marijuana in the state.
Kerry Francis, a spokeswoman at the Ohio Department of Commerce, said the initial rules focused on general definitions and other groundwork for the program, plus those that will control the cultivation of the drug.
Ultimately, state officials are focused on two things: “We want to make sure that we are protecting the safety of the public (and ensuring) a safe medical product,” Francis said.
3. Growing Marijuana: Don’t expect to drive through the Ohio countryside past green fields of marijuana waving in the wind. Rules require the plants to be grown in highly secured facilities, out of the public eye.
Growers have to complete an extensive application process to be considered for the limited number of licenses that will be made available.
There are two levels of cultivator licenses. Level I will cover larger facilities (initial operations up to 25,000 square feet), while Level II will cover smaller ones (initial areas up to 3,000 square feet).
There will be a dozen licenses awarded by state officials for each level (24 total), with provisions in the rules for additional licenses in the future, should demand warrant increased production.
Level II applications will be accepted between Monday and June 16, while Level I applications will be accepted June 19-30.
4. Show Me the Money: There’s a cost to get your foot in the door. Level I applicants have to pay $20,000 up front, while Level II pay $2,000 when submitting their initial application.
Those initial fees are nonrefundable.
If selected for a provisional license, cultivators will have to pay an additional $180,000 for Level I and $18,000 for Level II certificates. Licenses have to be renewed annually, at a cost of $200,000 for Level I and $20,000 for Level II.
5. Who Gets Licensed: The application process is extensive, requiring names of people involved, criminal background checks, disclosures of ties to marijuana operations in other states and evidence that proposed cultivation sites are either owned or leased by applicants.
That’s not to mention business plans, details about proposed facilities, staffing and employment information, inventory tracking methods and disclosures of everything from the types of fertilizers and pesticides to be used to how waste will be disposed.
Just because you pay your application fee and submit all of the requisite paperwork, that doesn’t mean you automatically get a license to produce medical marijuana. There’s a scoring process the state will use to make final licensing decisions.
6. Restrictions Apply: Growing facilities can’t be located within 500 feet of schools, churches, playgrounds and parks, and other public areas.
Also, municipalities have the authority to restrict or prohibit cultivation and other medical marijuana activities.
7. The Application Itself: There’s also a whole series of specific submission requirements for the actual application paperwork.
For example, submissions must be hand delivered to the Ohio Department of Commerce’s offices near the Statehouse between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. during the acceptance periods for the two application levels.
Applicants must include “one paper copy of the application in 12-point font on standard white 8.5×11 copy paper, with margins no smaller than 3/4-inch.” Applicants also must provide digital copies of their submissions on a CD or DVD.
An information packet posted online notes, “Applications that do not contain all of the required elements in the required format will not be accepted.”
8. The Approval Process: Francis said there’s no timeline for when decisions will be made on which cultivators will receive licenses, though that process likely will be completed before the end of the year to provide time for licensees to have their operations in place by September 2018, when the program is supposed to be fully up and running.
9. What’s Next: State officials tackled the cultivator rules first, but there are other rules that will be developed in coming months covering testing labs, processors, dispensaries and doctors who will recommend the use of medical marijuana.
10. Reminder: Under Ohio’s medical marijuana law, doctors will have to direct medical marijuana use for their patients, with limits on the amount of the drug they could possess. The law lists more than 20 medical conditions that would qualify for marijuana use. It also bans smoked forms of the drug and homegrown supplies.

Money brought in by Colorado’s booming, legal marijuana industry is now being used to help homeless citizens, address mental health and end the state’s opioid epidemic.
The state’s $105 million in tax revenue from marijuana sales in the 2016-2017 fiscal year will go toward the “Marijuana Tax Cash Fund,” which will help create housing programs, aid mental health programs in jails and contribute to health programs at local middle schools. Last week, Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper signed the budget bill declaring the fund, which will also help oversight efforts for the industry.
“We expect to reduce incarceration, hospitalization and homelessness for many of Colorado’s most vulnerable citizens,” the bill reads.
For the next fiscal year, $15.3 million of those tax dollars were put toward providing “permanent supportive housing” and housing assistance for the homeless or those who were considered “at-risk” of losing their homes. The state’s Department of Education got $9.7 million to add 150 health professionals at high schools across the state, and the state’s Department of Human Services received $7.1 million to end “the use of jails for holding people who are experiencing a mental health crisis.”
Another $5.9 million will target illegal marijuana sales.
Hickenlooper also approved a different bill, which will annually allocate $500,000 of marijuana tax revenue to create a program that will send trained health care professionals to help those affected by the opioid epidemic in two Colorado counties.
A small number of states including Oregon, Washington and California, among others, have legalized the recreational use of marijuana in recent years — though it is still illegal federally. Under the Obama Administration, the Department of Justice relaxed federal enforcement of marijuana laws in states where it is legal. But the Trump Administration may walk back that effort.
