Marijuana coupons can help patients save money on medical marijuana, the cost of a doctor's recommendation, accessories, and paraphernalia used to smoke or otherwise ingest Cannabis. Collectives and dispensaries in medical-marijuana states, as well as "head shops" across the country, issue printable coupons, printed coupons and coupon codes. Physicians qualified to recommend medical marijuana and provide letters of recommendation and/or medical marijuana ID cards also distribute coupons.
While marijuana is currently only legal in some states, and usually only for medical purposes, it is typically legal to purchase items such as pipes, vaporizers, bongs and rolling papers from weed accessory stores or other online retailers.

Marijuana goes by many names: pot, weed, ganja, green, reefer and others. It's made from the dried flowers (as well as leaves, stems and even occasionally seeds) of Cannabis plants. Some marijuana is labelled as "sativa", and some is labelled "indica." Marijuana is illegal to possess or distribute under federal law. However, some states have made it legal to use marijuana to treat a variety of medical conditions when recommended by a qualified physician. Colorado and Washington have both passed laws to legalize marijuana for recreational use, regardless of medical need. Even in these states, some "legal" growers and distributors of marijuana are shut down by law enforcement.
The active ingredient in marijuana is THC, or delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol. This is absorbed into the body when marijuana is smoked or eaten in cooked foods, or when the fumes are inhaled from a marijuana vaporizer.
