It’s difficult trying to deal with the state when you have complications at the DMV.
When our license plate was stolen last year, it took myself and others months to get a new one because all of the state offices were closed at the time while every one of us were in the COVID pandemic.
Even after they slowly reopened some of the offices, you had to make appointments and often you had to show up at 8am if you wanted to visit the DMV in particular. Eventually I got our license plate replacement, but it took more than five months of waiting in frustration. I was pulled over numerous times by the police because I didn’t have a license plate. Each time I had to show them our registration and give them a note that the DMV provided me. It’s aggravating when you’re trying to get to labor on time and you’re needlessly pulled over by a cop because you can’t get a new license plate from the DMV. The DMV situation was horrible, but getting a medical marijuana card wasn’t much easier. I knew that I qualified because I have consistent complications with IBS, despite the fact that I couldn’t find the right information on how to proceed in getting our medical marijuana card. I wasn’t sure if I was supposed to see a marijuana doctor first or if I should send an application to the state before I do that. Thankfully, I finally got someone from the Department of Health on the cellphone and he explained the process to me. I’m blissful that I finally found out how to get a medical marijuana card, because I’m sick of feeling like a criminal buying on the black market.
