What are people saying about Cannabis Dispensaries in Merced, CA?
"Went here because I didn't want to go to Modesto to renew my card. Nice clean office, and as most prop 215 offices, kind of sparse, but staff was friendly and helpful. What impressed me most is I paid HALF what I paid in Modesto for the same things. The doctor also gave me more info on what he felt would help me then the other doctor, which I liked very much. If you are looking in getting the card, I recommend this office. It's close by and reasonably priced. If you aren't well versed in the uses of medical marijuana, they give you great info to help make your decisions."
