  • General Info

    Cannabis is not just for relaxing. Many patients use it for medicinal purposes. Whether you’re a first-time medical cannabis patient or a current one interested in renewal, continue reading for an in-depth look into the process of getting a medical marijuana recommendation in Arizona.

    Age Requirements for Medical Marijuana Card

    Currently, Arizona residents can use medical cannabis recreationally or medicinally. Medical cannabis patients must have a recommendation from an approved doctor. To get a medical cannabis recommendation, patients must meet the following criteria:

    • Be at least 18 years old or older*
    • Have a current driver’s license or state identification card
    • Be an Arizona resident
    • Have a qualifying medical condition

    Thanks to some unique provisions in Arizona’s medical marijuana laws, individuals under the age of 18 can qualify for a medical marijuana recommendation. A custodial parent or legal guardian who’s at least 21 years old must register as their caregiver. It is unlawful for minors to use cannabis recreationally.

    Qualifying Conditions in Arizona

    Currently, the Arizona Department of Health (AZDHS) approves medical marijuana recommendation applications for patients with at least one of the following qualifying medical or health conditions.

    • HIV (Human immunodeficiency virus) or AIDS (Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome)
    • Cachexia or Wasting Syndrome
    • Glaucoma
    • Chronic or Severe Pain
    • PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder)
    • Epilepsy
    • Seizures
    • Crohn’s Disease
    • Alzheimer’s Disease
    • Severe or Chronic Nausea
    • Multiple Sclerosis
    • Hepatitis C
    • Cancer
    • ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or Lou Gehrig’s disease)
    • Severe or Chronic Muscle Spasms

    Bear in mind that many medical cannabis patients experience severe or chronic pain from underlying issues that may or may not be connected to a qualifying condition. If you suffer from symptoms associated with any of the medical ailments listed above, you should consider seeing a medical cannabis physician for an evaluation.

    Another special caveat in Arizona’s medical marijuana program is that every July, residents and physicians can petition the Department of Health to review and add new diseases, symptoms, or ailments to the qualifying list of approved conditions for medical cannabis use.

    Cost of a Medical Marijuana Card

    For Arizona residents, the application fee for a medical marijuana card is $150. This is an annual fee that is required upon renewal. This does not include any doctor or physician related fees for the medical evaluation needed for approval. 

    Interested individuals should be prepared to pay on average up to $300 or more for a physician’s recommendation and their medical card. Designated caregivers must pay a $200 application fee for their medical marijuana cards.

    Of course, patients who apply or renew via Marijuana Doctors website have lower application and renewal costs. Our service is an affordable and cost-effective safety net for many medical marijuana patients.

    We advise patients to play it safe and renew their cards several weeks before the expiration date to avoid processing or unexpected delays in their medical marijuana treatment regimens.

    Details About the Medical Marijuana Process

    Before applying for a recommendation to use cannabis legally for medicinal reasons, an appointment with a qualified medical marijuana doctor or physician is necessary. Patients should bring a copy of their most recent medical records to their appointment for review.

    The purpose of this appointment is for the doctor to evaluate the patient’s medical history, symptoms, and diagnosis and discuss potential benefits and risks that medical cannabis use may pose to their health and wellness. Medical marijuana recommendation approval is contingent on the physician’s recommendation.

    Anyone with old or outdated medical records should see their primary physician first for an updated diagnosis and appropriate medical documentation. Due to licensing and professional regulations, many MMJ recommendation doctors do not provide medical marijuana recommendations for diagnoses older than one-year.

    Approved patients can then either apply for their recommendation card online via the Arizona Department of Health Services website or through MarijuanaDoctors.com.

    Locate Arizona Dispensaries

    Approved patients can use their medical marijuana recommendations at any state-licensed dispensary in the state. As of April 2022, Arizona is home to 127 operational medical marijuana dispensaries. Finding a dispensary is fast and easy with our convenient locator.

    FAQs About Getting a Medical Marijuana Recommendation in Arizona

    Though getting a recommendation to freely use cannabis to treat your symptoms and ailments is a relatively straightforward process, we understand how intimidating or slightly confusing it may seem. It’s okay, we’re here to help. Please take a moment or two to review some frequently asked questions we receive from MMJ patients in Arizona.

    What If I Don’t Have Medical Records to Get a Medical Marijuana Card in Arizona?

    Sadly, not everyone has a copy of their medical records on hand when getting ready to apply for an MMJ card in AZ. Fortunately, many clinics and health care providers offer general medical services, including access to a primary physician or general practitioner for patients to see for a formal or updated diagnosis.

    Anyone who believes they may have one or multiple qualifying conditions but does not have a formal diagnosis should be prepared to undergo additional diagnostics before their primary doctor or specialist can confirm and update their medical records.

    Many severe medical conditions take time to diagnose which is why we encourage anyone interested in getting a medical recommendation for cannabis to start the process at their earliest convenience.

    Do I Need a Caregiver?

    Arizona doesn’t require adult patients to have caregivers for medical marijuana recommendations. They can designate a trusted person who meets Arizona’s caregiver requirements or they can remain caregiver free. However, anyone under 18 years old must have a custodial parent or guardian who is at least 21 years old as a caregiver.

    Can I Add or Change a Caregiver?

    Patients can amend their caregiver preferences with AZDHS any time they like, as long as they follow AZDHS caregiver regulations.
