The AG’s office says since passage of Initiative 65 last month, they have received questions about ads claiming to offer pre-registration for medical marijuana cards.

The Mississippi Department of Health has not issued any regulations for Initiative 65 so far, and has not licensed any providers.

Fitch is urging Mississippians to watch out for any promises to jump you to the head of the line for access to medical marijuana. She says it is too early for any company to offer that guarantee.
