I found out not too long ago that when I needed to change the address on my driver’s license, the DMV didn’t undoubtedly “renew” my license the way they said they would.
Suddenly on my anniversary this year my license expired and I found out from a bar where I was trying hard to get entry, and they said “sorry, but the people I was with and I can’t serve you” just from having a license that expired two days prior. This was an extreme annoyance and I had to be certain I got up early enough the next day to visit the DMV before heading into my task for the day. It was an additional $35 I wasn’t expecting to spend that actual day, but at least my driver’s license is now active all over again. Oddly enough, renewing my medical marijuana card with the state was even more simple this year than renewing my driver’s license. When my medical marijuana program started way back in 2017, you had to mail the Office of Medical Marijuana Use your check and paper application. Then you waited a month longer for the marijuana card to arrive. Now you can renew with their digital portal and have a temporary digital card delivered to your email in a matter of seconds. This is enjoyable if you want to renew your card on the same day as your appointment with your medical cannabis physician. Once you know your physician has replaced your medical cannabis recommendation with the OMMU, you can submit your application and payment method to gain the temporary card in a matter of minutes. It’s a fairly convenient process compared to the paper applications from 5 years ago.
