Mike Vasser: Cannabis dispensary a good addition

I am a medicinal cannabis user. In order to purchase a cannabis salve for neuropathic pain I paid $150 to meet with a certified medical doctor, discuss my chronic pain and get his recommendation required by state law.

I had to order medical cannabis products from a state-certified delivery company. In addition to the expense of purchasing the cannabis products, I paid almost as much for the delivery cost.

After extensive public hearings, committee meetings and multiple ordinance drafts, Nevada City selected and approved a medical cannabis dispensary, Elevation 2477 was opened on the 500 block of Searls Avenue. Until Jan. 24, 2019 it operated solely as a medical cannabis dispensary. As of that date it began selling recreational cannabis products.

For me, my experience purchasing medical cannabis products at Elevation 2477 has been very positive. Daniel Batchelor and his staff have provided excellent service in a very comfortable, secure setting. The staff is knowledgeable, personable and efficient. I now have a dispensary nearby so I can purchase products at a relatively reasonable cost.

Also, I have been able to continue renewal of my medical cannabis recommendation online for $20. Before, the cost was $75. Even though the recommendation isn’t necessary locally, other counties may still require it. Anyone with chronic pain, anxiety or other medical problems only need to be 21 years of age and have valid driver’s license to purchase medical cannabis products. Before purchasing products you may want to consult your personal physician before proceeding.

I strongly recommend Elevation 2477 to purchase cannabis products.
