- Always medicate out of the view of the public.
- Always have your state issued medical marijuana registry ID card on your person.
- Never drive under the influence of medical marijuana. A person can receive a DUI or injure themselves and others while driving under the influence of medical cannabis.
- Never drive with medical marijuana in reach. Store the medicine in the trunk or back of the vehicle.
