California -- Riverside County today joins the statewide medical marijuana identification card program for those who have a doctor's permission to use the drug. Officials estimate Riverside County could see 3,000 to 4,000 people apply for the card, which costs $100 - or $50 for patients who have Medi-Cal.The cards are optional; patients only need a doctor's note to legally use marijuana. But the card can help protect patients from criminal prosecution if local law enforcement stops them.
"I kind of liken the ID card to a driver's license," says Palm Springs resident Lanny Swerdlow, a Marijuana Anti-Prohibition Project activist who plans to get the card but declined to discuss his health history."If you are driving a car and the police stop you, you show them your license and they can't arrest you," Swerdlow said. "If you don't have the license when they stop you, they can arrest you and they can take your car. The same thing with the medical marijuana card."Appointments are available through the county Public Health Department.Applicants must have a valid identification card, proof of residency and a doctor's recommendation.The statewide card program began this summer. California is one of 10 states that allow medical marijuana use, though patients could still face federal prosecution. Patients have been known to use marijuana for diseases such as AIDS, cancer and glaucoma.The county's Department of Public Health has already received a number of phone calls from people wanting to get the card."It's really an optional card," says Victoria Jauregui Burns, chief of the health department's HIV/AIDS program. "You're not required by law to get it. We're going to be watching as much as everyone else just how receptive everyone is."NEED A CARD?To apply for a card, contact the county's Public Health Department at (888) 358-7932. Cards are $100, half price for Medi-Cal patients. Applicants must show a valid identification, proof of residency and a doctor's recommendation. The Marijuana Anti-Prohibition Project (MAPP) will host an information session about the cards at 3 p.m. Sunday at the Cathedral City Public Library, 33520 Date Palm Drive.Note: County expects up to 4,000 people to apply for optional ID cards.Source: Desert Sun, The (CA)Author: Erica Solvig, The Desert SunPublished: December 1, 2005 Copyright: 2005 The Desert SunContact: letters thedesertsun.comWebsite: http://www.thedesertsun.com/Related Article:Lawmaker Puts Pot Bill on Back Burnerhttp://cannabisnews.com/news/thread10987.shtmlCannabisNews Medical Marijuana Archiveshttp://cannabisnews.com/news/list/medical.shtml

Riverside doesn't allow dispensories still.
I agree that Riverside needs to allow dispensaries. As of now, I have to drive all the way down to Orange Country to pick up my prescription from a dispensary down there. As long as we have Mayor Loverage in power he won't help push the country to give leeway. At least my doctor is really good.

Cannabis clubs in Riverside?
I wonder when they're going to actually let Riverside medical marijuana patients buy medicine from dispensaries in Riverside. But they can't because of a lame PD and some backward thinking.

Riverside County Offers Pot ID Cards***First Southland county to comply with state law intended to shield medical marijuana users from arrest. But Supreme Court ruling could put them at risk.By Susannah Rosenblatt, Times Staff WriterDecember 1, 2005Riverside County will begin issuing photo identification cards to local medical marijuana users today, the first Southern California county to comply with a state law intended to shield medical patients from arrest."The county is trying to comply with the law approved by the voters and develop a procedure that'll do that," said Marion Ashley, Riverside County Board of Supervisors chairman. "This will probably remove the anxieties  legitimate, card-carrying users of medical marijuana may have." 
Still, the cards will be issued at a time when state and federal laws conflict over the use of medical marijuana, leaving users and their suppliers in danger of facing federal charges.California's Proposition 215 legalized the drug for therapeutic purposes in 1996, and 2003 state legislation provided for ID cards. However, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in June that federal authorities could still seize and destroy medical marijuana plants and arrest their growers and consumers  even in the 10 states that allow medical marijuana use. While federal authorities primarily target "large-scale drug trafficking organizations," individual medical marijuana users remain vulnerable, regardless of whether they have a state-issued ID card, said Sarah Beers, spokeswoman for the Drug Enforcement Agency in Los Angeles."In the eyes of the federal government, [a card] means absolutely nothing," said Thom Mrozek, spokesman for the U.S. attorney's office in Los Angeles. "Under federal law it is illegal to possess, to sell or to cultivate marijuana."However, the cards could help protect medicinal users of the illegal drug from prosecution by local law enforcement, county health officials said. The Riverside County district attorney's office "recognizes that we have to follow the law, and there is a legitimate need," spokeswoman Ingrid Wyatt said."Those people that have [the card] will now be properly identified," Wyatt said, while "we'll be able to prosecute those who try to abuse the system."Wyatt said the county district attorney's office reviews each medical marijuana case individually, and has prosecuted only "a handful." The optional cards will feature a medical marijuana user's photo and a computer-generated identification number, but no name, address or medical information, said Victoria Jauregui Burns, county public health department program chief. State estimates indicate 3,000 to 4,000 potential cardholders in Riverside County each year.
