    GWPH. Novus Aims to Make Medical Cannabis Affordable

    Whitefish, MT / Aug 22, 2014 / The legalization of medical cannabis has picked up steam over the past couple years, with 23 states and Washington D.C legalizing the drug in some form.

These costs are especially significant given that many medical cannabis patients and their families are already suffering from costly medical conditions.

Many of these families may already be facing higher medical bills, as we mentioned, including excess doctor visits, surgeries, and prescription drugs that aren’t covered by insurance. In many cases, medical cannabis is also the only viable option for the patient.
