  • General Info

    Medical cannabis has paved the way for thousands of Louisiana residents with debilitating medical conditions to live healthier and more productive lives. The Pelican state decriminalized marijuana for medical treatments in 2019. Now, over 43,000 residents benefit from using prescription marijuana as an alternative therapy to conventional medications and treatments.

    Residents interested in becoming medical cannabis patients must apply to the state’s Medical Marijuana Program, overseen by the Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry (LDAF). After approval, patients can safely medicate without legal consequences to make their symptoms more manageable to improve their quality of life.

    Age Requirements for a Louisiana Medical Marijuana Card

    Louisiana is a bit of an outlier regarding medical marijuana laws across the country. Currently, there is no age requirement for medical marijuana treatment applicants. Anyone 18 and older with at least one of the previously mentioned medical ailments can apply. 

    Eligible patients under the age of 18 must be under the care of a primary physician and pediatric subspecialist. A primary doctor and pediatric specialist must authorize medical cannabis as a viable treatment option.

    Minors qualifying on autistic spectrum criteria may be provided a caregiver to help with their medical marijuana treatments. Only approved legal parents and guardians, 21 or older, are authorized to become caregivers for autistic minor medical cannabis patients. Minors with other qualifying symptoms or medical conditions who meet all other Louisiana Medical Marijuana Program criteria can complete the application process themselves.

    Qualifying Conditions in Louisiana

    Residents must have a qualifying medical ailment or medical condition that causes debilitating symptoms. A formal diagnosis must be obtained from an approved physician. Anyone with at least one of the following qualifying diagnosable disorders is eligible for a medical marijuana card in Louisiana.

    • Alzheimer’s disease
    • Cancer
    • Crohn’s disease
    • Glaucoma
    • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
    • Lewy body dementia
    • Motor neuron disease
    • Parkinson’s disease
    • Huntington’s disease

    Minor patients with autism spectrum disorders that cause any of the above concerns must have their recommending doctor consult with a pediatric subspecialist to receive authorization for medical cannabis treatment.

    Cost of Medical Marijuana Card

    Currently, there’s no fee for medical marijuana recommendation cards in Louisiana. However, a primary requirement of the program involves patients seeing an approved physician for evaluation and cannabis prescription certification. The costs of medical cannabis certification recommendations vary among medical providers and typically range from $150 to $300. Once diagnosed/certified by an approved medical cannabis physician, patients can start receiving treatments.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Medical Marijuana in Louisiana

    The state’s medical marijuana program is still in the expansion stages, leaving many questions for residents and patients interested in medical cannabis treatments. Below are some common questions and answers to help clear up any uncertainties or confusion.

    How to Find a Reputable Medical Marijuana Doctor in Louisiana

    With plenty of medical providers across the state, finding a credible and trustworthy marijuana doctor can be time-consuming.

    Louisiana Marijuana Patient Limits on Different Types of Medical Cannabis Products

    Patient limits and consumption forms are determined by approved marijuana providers and dispensed by cannabis pharmacies. Patients are allowed up to 2.5 ounces of cannabis flower or marijuana product equivalents every 14 days in the following consumption forms.
