How Is This Legal?

Article 4 Section 1 of the US Constitution says:

“Full Faith and Credit shall be given in each State to the public Acts, Records, and judicial Proceedings of every other State. And the Congress may by general Laws prescribe the Manner in which such Acts, Records and Proceedings shall be proved, and the Effect thereof.”

This means that Article IV, Section 1 ensures that states respect and honor the state laws and court orders of other states, even when their own laws are different. It is also known as the reciprocity clause.

The 1996 Compassionate Use Act is a California law which allows anyone to become a member of a cannabis collective with the recommendation of a doctor.

Through the provisions of the Affordable Care Act, patients can see doctors via telemedicine services from the privacy of their homes.
Telemedicine is an internet-based video conference call with a licensed practicing physician. These internet-based video calls enable your doctors to write your prescriptions and recommendations in a legal and accepted way, without you leaving home.

A teleconference appointment with a CA doctor will give a treatment plan, a physical medical cannabis card, and a signed recommendation for membership with Be Pain Free.

Legally, under the provisions of the ACA, this is the same thing as the patient traveling to CA to see the doctor in person.

Tying it all together

Be Pain Free has several safeguards in place, the first of which is our compliance within the legal framework mentioned above. The second is the medical card which, in many cases, can shield a patient from scrutiny by agents of the state. The third is the discreet way we ship the medication. We ship directly to patients’ homes in non-descript packaging, without labels indicating the contents of the package, thereby protecting each patient’s privacy.
