Your Health Care

Health care is a big issue, but it does not have to be. There are people that are using the Internet to get more information on choosing a primary care provider. There are reviews online. People that are looking for a physician have the ability to find out what other patients are saying about the service that they are getting. This is helpful, but this is just the beginning of what technology brings to the health care industry.

People that are using tablets and smart phones are now able to get a checkup form a doctor through a video conferencing method. This is new and intriguing in the smart device environment, and a lot of millennial patients are embracing this. There are so many people that are not feeling well, but they do not have the time to get to the doctor. Some people don’t have the ability to get themselves out of bed.

How California’s Marijuana Laws Are Changing the Cannabis Industry

How California's Marijuana Laws Are Changing the Cannabis Industry

In the 21st century, there has been a change in the attitudes of many Americans when it comes to Marijuana. Presently it is legal in 9 States and the District of Columbia, and it is decriminalized in 13 other states. The states that have legalized cannabis have seen a sharp increase in businesses related to the industry. In fact, many people are moving from states that have harsher penalties for marijuana to set up businesses in these legal areas. Companies including dispensaries, restaurants, health supplements, and many others have been set up to take advantage of this new economy. Even though cannabis is still considered a Schedule 1 drug by the Federal Government, and therefore illegal, these companies continue to rise unabated.

An amendment in the federal budget inhibits federal resources to be used to prosecute cannabis businesses that operate within the laws of that state, so that gives states further incentive to follow the rules. California’s new marijuana laws allow anyone with a license to purchase marijuana in approved locations, but they are not allowed to smoke in public. This being said, there are companies planning to create “cannabis lounges”, similar to Dutch coffee shops, where people can meet and smoke. Retailers will need separate licenses to sell both medicinal and recreational marijuana. The medical dispensaries still require a medicinal card to purchase medicinal cannabis from their dispensary. There is also a lot of autonomy from the cities about dealing with marijuana. Many cities still do not allow recreational Cannabis to be sold.

In the cities where it is allowed, however, they are taking full advantage of the new laws. Many companies have set up their shops to look …
