If you have a current recommendation, you can register online or in person at either of our locations. All cannabis patient recommendations will be verified with the doctor prior to any purchase or admittance to either of our locations.

Recommendations must be current when placing orders online or visiting us in person.

We Choose to Not Use the Term "Medical Marijuana"

While you may have heard medical cannabis referred to as medical marijuana, at Harborside we do not use that term. William Randolph Hearst utilized the word marijuana, as did his political allies, to promote harmful stereotypes about both the Mexican and Black populations. Smokers of marijuana were frequently caricatured as crazed and violent black men or lazy, thieving Mexicans.

We use the term medical cannabis rather than medical marijuana because we choose not to associate the positive healing properties of cannabis with the negative, racist undertones of the word marijuana. To use that term would passively support the wrong and hurtful notions of Hearst and his allies, whereas we believe that cannabis is medicine, and is meant for people of all colors and walks of life.
