In 2008, Michigan joined the growing list of states that have passed medical marijuana laws. Proposal 1, aka the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act (MMMA) allows qualified patients to use marijuana for medical reasons. If you’d like to get medical marijuana in Michigan, simply follow these few steps:

Step One: Be Diagnosed with a Qualifying Medical Condition

In order to use cannabis under MI medical marijuana law, you must first be diagnosed with Cancer, Glaucoma, HIV/AIDS, hepatitis C, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Crohn’s disease, agitation of Alzheimer’s disease, nail patella, or a chronic or debilitating disease or medical condition or its treatment that produces one or more of the following:

Step Two: Get a Marijuana Recommendation from a Qualified Physician

The next step in becoming a medical marijuana patient in Michigan is to obtain a written recommendation (also known as marijuana prescription) from a physician that is licensed in the state of Michigan stating that you have been diagnosed with a debilitating medical condition and that you are “likely to receive therapeutic or palliative benefit from the medical use of marihuana.” If you are looking for quality Michigan medical marijuana doctors, can help.

Step Three: Get a Marijuana Card

To get a card, patients and caregivers must register with the Michigan Department of Community Health by sending an application and a Physician Certification to the Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) along with the following documents:

  • Copy of Patient’s Photo Identification
  • Copy of Patient’s Photo Identification
  • Caregiver Attestation (if applicable; included in the application form)
  • Copy of Caregiver’s Photo Identification (if applicable)
  • A check or money order in the amount of $100.00 (or a reduced fee of $25.00 if currently enrolled in Medicaid or receiving SSI or SSD) made payable to State of Michigan—MMMP

Mail all of the above to:

Step 4: Grow Your Own Marijuana or Purchase it from a Dispensary

Now that you’ve obtained your marijuana recommendation and marijuana card, you can now legally grow and consume your medicine under MI marijuana law. Additionally, these documents will also get you into countless dispensaries across the state where you or your caregiver can purchase high grade cannabis in smokable and edible form.
