    If I live outside Michigan, can I obtain a medical card if I have an rx from a Michigan physician?

    A 'medical card' is the prescription. Where I live, docs provide a written prescription and a small wallet size medical card, at the same time.

    However, most dispensaries here, want to see the written prescription, not the card, and they do verify with the doc before setting up membership in the co-op dispensary.

    It's very unlikely that an out-of-state prescription will be valid in a different state.

    Quite right. I think Maryland honors out of state recs but not Michigan.

    Let me make a small point while I have the floor.

    Because Cannabis is still schedule-1, it can not be "prescribed".
    The best a doctor can do is a recommendation.
    He simply states that, in his professional opinion, cannabis will do more good than harm for your condition.
    It is NOT a get out of jail free card.

    A medical defense is forbidden in federal court.
    Not even allowed to mention it.
    But a doctors recommendation gives a lawyer something to work with in State courts and can lead to jury nullification. :)
    We get enough of those and the battle is over. :)
