The interview with the Doctor was quick and easy. The process prior to that (completing the application and uploading documents) was what took the most time. Price was competitive with others.

Getting my rec instantly and online was extremely easy and fast. I completed the application, spoke with a doctor, and never left my bed – which was great since I have a bad cold. Will always go this route in the future!

I was speaking to doctor, who was extremely easy to talk to, within minutes of accessing the website. Getting a download of my rec. took about the same amount of time. I’d recommend LeafWell to all seeking a medical marijuana rec.

2000 – Voters approve Ballot Amendment 20, removing state-level penalties on use, possession and cultivation of cannabis by those with a valid recommendation from their physician.

2010 – Governor Bill Ritter signs House Bill 1284 (HB 1284) and Senate Bill 109 (SB 109). HB 1284 regulates dispensaries, whilst SB 109 ensures that doctors conduct a proper physical examination and that they do not have a DEA flag on their license.
