Leafly’s Medical Cannabis Patients Bill of Rights

As a medical cannabis patient, it's important to be aware of your rights when you interact with a cannabis provider. You're entitled to a clean, safe environment as well as sanitary, appropriate medication suited for your unique needs. Leafly has created a Medical Cannabis Patients Bill of Rights to help you understand and acknowledge your rights when you visit a medical cannabis provider. 

All medical cannabis patients have the right to the following:

  1. A clean, professionally run medical cannabis provider location (dispensary, access point, co-op, etc.)
  2. Safety when procuring medical cannabis
  3. Access to knowledgeable staff members or educational resources
  4. Medicine that is lab-tested for quality and safety standards
  5. Pesticide-free medicine 
  6. Staff use of gloves, tongs, or other sanitary measures to guarantee cleanliness of your medicine
  7. Considerate, respective care and assistance from provider staff
  8. Privacy while visiting a dispensary and confidentiality of your personal information
  9. Access to different types of medicine (flowers, tinctures, medibles, topicals, etc.) that are suited to your unique patient needs
