Patients can choose from 1/8 ounce containers that cost between $20 and $60. There is a one ounce limit. They could also choose from several cannabis based lotions and tinctures as well as rolling papers and lighters.

“This is something that’s normal. It doesn’t seem abnormal to me,” Rynearson said.

Rynearson did  say occasional he does have a bad trip. MedEx when it absolutely positively has to get there sometime.
