The county is charging patients $166 to cover program costs. Medi-Cal patients pay $83.
Swerdlow said he has been telling patients who grow their own marijuana to get a card.

When local governments ban medical pot outlets, "they turn it into this wild west show where collectives open up illegally and delivery services abound," said Lanny Swerdlow, director of the Palm Springs-based pro-legalization Marijuana Anti-Prohibition Project.
"They just open up because people have the right to this," Swerdlow said.
As the debate continues, "the only people who are winning in this whole thing are the lawyers," quipped Swerdlow, of MAPP.

Marty is friends and in league with Lanny Swerdlow, Director of MAPP (Marijuana Anti-Prohibition Project) in Palm Springs.
There is a long history of joists between the San Bernardino law officials, city councils, and county supervisors (Jeff Stone in particular) versus Lanny and MAPP members.
A ‘new' organizational ‘non-profit' was starting up Lanny got word of it and along with several other MAPP members went to their first meeting.
The Victors were part of a 12-person collective including local MMJ advocates Lanny Swerdlow and Dave Herrick.
Lanny Swerdlow, director of the Marijuana Anti-Prohibition Project in Palm Springs, is presently facing trial in a dispute with a local anti-drug advocate. The Victors were arrested in 2001 for cultivation, but were dismissed from felony charges under Prop. 215.
Lanny says, "I am going to the Victor's as soon as this email goes out. Cable Company Pulls Medical Marijuana Ads, 18 Aug 2006 [cached]
The ads, produced by the Marijuana Anti-Prohibition Project, a local medical marijuana advocacy group, had been scheduled to run every other week for three months on Comedy Central, MSNBC, the Travel Channel and Home and Garden Television, said Lanny Swerdlow, the group's president."They are censoring speech that they don't approve of.They should not be doing that," said Swerdlow, who found out about the cancellation only after being called by a reporter Wednesday."They should be in the business of fostering new ideas, not trying to squelch them," he said.Swerdlow said he had signed a contract with Time Warner on Aug. 7 and paid the company for the first month.The contract allows the company to cancel the ads, but only with 14 days' prior notice, he said.Swerdlow also expects a full refund of the money.Cable Access Show Still On Kathi Jacobs, public affairs director for Time Warner, did not give a reason for the cancellation."The ads have been turned down," Jacobs said."They will not be aired."But, she said, Time Warner will continue to run "Marijuana: Compassion and Common Sense," the half-hour show MAPP airs in the Coachella Valley at 11 p.m. Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays on cable access Channel 18.
Lanny Swerdlow, president of MAPP, had signed a contract with the company to run the ads every other week for three months.But the company unexpectedly said Wednesday it was pulling the ads before they aired.Swerdlow said he had spoken with company representatives today who said the ads had just been put on hold temporarily to allow the company to review them."We were obviously treated differently from most advertizers," Swerdlow said.
Swerdlow is the founder and ..., 6 April 2007 [cached]
Swerdlow is the founder and president of MAPP, a patient advocacy and support group.He is a grassroots activist who combines old-school passion with modern-day multimedia savvy.
Today, he is excited because members of the group have taken the first steps toward forming a patients' collective to grow and dispense the drug in a way that would be legal under California's medical marijuana laws.
"You are going to be producing your own medicine on a home-grown scale," he said to patients at the meeting."Medical marijuana may be developing a new way of delivering health care in this country."
Swerdlow came up with the idea for the collective in response to the ongoing efforts by area cities to close medical marijuana dispensaries.
Last month, Desert Hot Springs was granted a temporary restraining order against Organic Solutions of the Desert, a dispensary that opened in the city earlier this year.
Started in a drug paraphernalia shop in Desert Hot Springs in 1999, the group now has an e-mail list of more than 600, Swerdlow said.It's self-produced cable television show, "Medical Marijuana: Compassion and Common Sense" airs weekly in the Coachella Valley and the high desert, as well as Glendale and Burbank.
Usually led by Swerdlow, MAPP meetings combine equal parts education, patient networking and old-fashioned political consciousness raising.
