Medical marijuana stats update: Number of kids on registry nearly doubles in two months

The number of people signing up for their state medical marijuana cards just barely outpaced the thousands of people dropping off the list from July to August. While the total number of new applications for the medical marijuana registry increased by 3,640 from June through August, to 230,847, the total number of active red cards only increased by 330 people. As we've discussed before in this space, the discrepancy is due largely to people leaving the registry and not renewing their state-issued medical marijuana card.
