I came to find out recently that when I needed to change the address on my driver’s license, the DMV didn’t carry through with the “renewal” procedure for my license as they claimed they would.
Suddenly on my birthday this year my license expired and I found out from a bar where I was actually attempting to gain entry.
They told me, “sorry, however all of us can’t serve you at this time” just from having a license that was expired for 2 days. This was bothersome and I had to make sure I got up early enough the upcoming day to visit the DMV before heading into my job. It was an additional $35 I wasn’t expecting to spend that day, however at least my driver’s license is active now. Oddly enough, renewing my medical marijuana card with the state was genuinely easier this year than renewing my driver’s license. When my medical marijuana program started in 2017, you had to mail the Office of Medical Marijuana Use your check and paper application. Then you waited another month or so for the marijuana card to show up at your residence. Now you are able to easily renew with their digital portal and have a temporary digital card sent to your phone in a short time period. This is incredible if you want to renew your card on the same day as your appointment with your medical cannabis healthcare worker. Once you know your physician has upgraded your medical cannabis recommendation with the OMMU, you can submit your application and payment plan to get the temporary card in a few hours. It’s a straightforward process compared to the paper applications that started some 5 years ago.
