Do I Qualify for California Medical Cannabis?

California law outlines the diseases and symptoms that can legally get marijuana medicine. Here’s the abridged version.

These diagnoses are allowed to be treated with MMJ under California law:

Disorders that make tasks the ADA calls “daily living activities” difficult or impossible also count. These tasks include:

  • Breathing
  • Learning
  • Thinking
  • Bending
  • Walking
  • Sleeping
  • Concentrating
  • Hearing
  • Caring for oneself
  • Lifting
  • Performing manual tasks
  • Communicating
  • Standing
  • Eating
  • Seeing
  • Speaking
  • Reading
  • Working

Any other health problem that poses a huge risk to your health and safety if not alleviated can receive MMJ, too.

California’s MMJ Application Materials

You’ll work with your county’s department of health to apply for medical marijuana. They’ll need the following documents from you:

  • The Department of Health’s official application (English versionSpanish version)
  • A government-issued ID with a photo
  • A utility bill, vehicle registration or rent/mortgage receipt that proves your county residency
  • A permission slip from your physician
  • The registration fee that your county requires

The most crucial part of your registration is the paper from your doctor. They can provide it in any format as long as it mentions the relevant diagnosis and confirms your doctor recommends the use of medical marijuana. California offers a physician form for your convenience, but you aren’t required to use it (English versionSpanish version).

All medical marijuana cardholders can purchase cannabis at a dispensary or collective. You can own up to one ounce of the marijuana plant itself or up to eight grams of concentrated medicine, like lotions or tinctures.

If you’re an immigrant or visitor from outside the U.S., we advise you to take care when travelling — NORML has heard reports that some ICE officials use medical marijuana and related documents as grounds for deportation.
