Arizona Medical Marijuana Program is LIVE!
Posted by Marijuana Doctors on 04/14/2011 in Medical Marijuana Laws
Today is a special day for seriously ill Arizona residents: the Department of Health Services has launched its online application system for medical marijuana patients, which means Arizona residents can now legally qualify for medical marijuana.
The application process is mandatory for all patients looking to use medical marijuana in Arizona, which became the 15th state to legalize medical marijuana on November 2, 2010 with the passing of Arizona Proposition 203.
Department Director Will Humble says the online application system was created to be efficient and cost effective, and will prevent unqualified people from getting pot. The law allows approved patients to buy 2 1/2 ounces of marijuana every two weeks or grow the medicine themselves if they live 25 miles from a dispensary. The online application system is only available at http://www.azdhs.gov/prop203.
Here’s how to apply for your AZ medical marijuana card:
- download Adobe Reader. Without it, you will not be able to print your application receipt.
- collect all documentation required during the application process and follow all application instructions for Adult Patients, Patients Under 18, or Caregivers. Before beginning the application process, be sure you have the following items in digital format ready for upload:
- verify all data is correct before saving each page of the application.
- complete and submit the entire application without closing the browser. You will not be able to save and resume your application later.
