How To Get a Medical Marijuana Card
The Step-By-Step Process For Maryland Residents
Here is your step-by-step guide to get a medical marijuana card in Maryland. This is only possible for current Maryland residents with proof of address and a valid government ID.
Step 1: Register With MMCC
In order to register with the MMCC you must be at least 18 years old to register alone.
If you are under the age of 18, you must have at least one caregiver assigned to you at all times (this caregiver must be at least 21 years old and register with the commission before your registration.)
Step 2: Receive Written Certification From a Commission Registered Provider
In the state of Maryland certain providers have been identified by the commission as eligible to recommend medical marijuana for eligible patients.
You must have a bona fide provider-patient relationship with this doctor and they must do a full assessment to determine if medical marijuana can be a beneficial addition to your existing medical treatment plan.
Some qualifying medical conditions that are frequently approved include patients with epilepsy, severe nausea, PTSD, glaucoma, cancer, and more.
Step 3: Receive Your MMCC Patient ID Number
Before you receive your actual card you will get your patient ID number, which will deem you as an eligible patient in the state of Maryland.
Step 4: Visit Your Local Dispensary
Once you have your patient ID number you can bring that along with a government ID to your local dispensary and purchase medical cannabis.
You may only purchase a 30-day supply at once per Maryland rules and regulations.
