Having a Talk With Doc

To verify that you qualify for medicinal cannabis, check in with your doctor and ask them to complete the form provided by the state (English versionSpanish version). If they certify your condition and that you’d benefit from medical marijuana, you can use it as a part of your application.

Doing the Paperwork

Once you’re sure you can get MMJ, you just have to complete the state’s program application and turn it in to your county’s relevant office.

Your application must include:

  • A completed application form (English versionSpanish version)
  • A copy of your government-issued photo ID or birth certificate if under 18
  • Proof that you live in the county you’re submitting your application to, such as a utility bill or vehicle registration
  • Medical documentation proving your illness is on file with your doctor for authorization purposes — this can be the form mentioned above, or something else
  • A registration fee — amount depends on your county and Medi-Cal participation

What to Do With Your New Card

Card-holders can carry up to one ounce of marijuana or eight grams of concentrated cannabis. You can get your medicine at a dispensary or growing collective. Although everyone will be able to buy cannabis without a doctor’s recommendation in 2018, you may want to get a card to cover the gap between now and then.

Regardless of legal status, immigrants and other non-citizens should use caution when traveling with their medicine and documentation. NORML reports that ICE has used them as grounds for deportation, citing the federal Controlled Substances Act.
