In Minnesota it costs $250 for a MD exam from one who is licensed to evaluate patients for the state. He then will send prescription to a state approved lab. After meeting with their pharmacist he then determines what blend of Cannabis is right for you. In my case, it cost $270 for a one months supply. You have to determine if you can afford it or not and just what pain relief is worth to you. This information is for Minnesota only. You must be a resident of the state and may not transport the drug across state lines, especially to a state where it is illegal.
