Michigan was one of the first Midwestern states to legalize medical and recreational cannabis for residents. Since then, over 225,120 patients in the state confidently and passionately use medical marijuana to soothe their aches, pains, nausea, and other health symptoms.

Despite increased accessibility, many people remain unaware of how easy and beneficial becoming a medical marijuana patient in Michigan can be.

Here’s a brief, in-depth look into Michigan’s medical cannabis patient program.

To become a Michigan medical marijuana patient, applicants must be at least 18 years old. Moreover, the state’s medical marijuana  program allows children and teens up to 18 years old to receive medical cannabis treatments. Still, they need authorization from two approved and unaffiliated medical providers.

Parents are not allowed to certify or apply for minors to become medical marijuana patients without medical clearance.

Resident Requirements for Michigan Medical Cannabis Patients

According to MCL 333.26426(a)(6), MMMP applicants must be state residents. To satisfy the proof of Michigan residency requirements, applicants must submit a copy of one of the following documents:

  • Michigan voters’ registration card
  • Valid Michigan driver’s license
  • Valid state identification card

Michiganders seeking to verify their residency with their voter registration card must also provide proof of identity. The MMMP accepts documentation from any local or state government agency as long as it includes the applicant’s name, address, and governing agency.

All residency proofs must be current and valid.

Although marijuana is still a federally banned substance, the state of Michigan recognizes its therapeutic effects and honors the right of patients to use marijuana treatments to manage their medical and health conditions.

In order to be eligible for the Michigan Medical Marijuana Program (MMMP), applicants must have at least one of the following medical conditions.

  • Cancer
  • Glaucoma
  • HIV Positive
  • AIDS
  • Hepatitis C
  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Agitation of Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Nail Patella
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
  • Arthritis
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Spinal Cord Injury
  • Colitis
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease
  • Ulcerative Colitis
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Tourette’s Disease
  • Autism
  • Chronic Pain
  • Cerebral Palsy

Patients may also qualify if they have a chronic or debilitating disease, health condition or symptoms from medical treatments that produce one or more of the following:

  • Cachexia or wasting syndrome
  • Severe and chronic pain
  • Severe nausea
  • Seizures not limited to those characteristics of epilepsy
  • Severe and persistent muscle spasms not limited to those characteristic of multiple sclerosis)

Many of the conditions listed above cause qualifying symptoms long before a formal diagnosis is possible. Michigan residents who believe their ailments or health concerns qualify them for medical marijuana patient status should see their doctor for documentation and a cannabis-approved one for an evaluation and physician certification.

In Michigan, applicants are only required to pay a $40 application fee. Of course, there are additional expenses, such as the medical evaluation and cannabis health recommendation.

The cost of having a medical evaluation by a marijuana doctor licensed by the MMMP varies considerably amongst providers. The average price for the medical health evaluations in Michigan ranges from $100 to $250.

Since the state requires cannabis patients to have a bonafide and pre-existing relationship with their providers, some medical providers require multiple visits for marijuana treatment authorization. This increases the price of medical cannabis cards on potential applicants.

Many patients find it easier and more cost-effective to apply via an online cannabis medical provider and evaluation network like Marijuana Doctors.

                                                    Details About the Medical Marijuana Process in Michigan

                                                    As the state’s population grows, many new and long-term residents are uncertain about the application and approval process. Medical marijuana is a safe alternative and complement to many standard treatments and therapies. Though many people experience persistent or chronic symptoms that cause pain, nausea, and other issues that make daily functioning challenging, not everyone qualifies for marijuana treatment.

                                                    Residents must have documentation regarding their health symptoms or conditions and undergo a marijuana health evaluation to receive authorization for medical marijuana treatments. Fortunately, with Marijuana Doctors, it’s easy for patients to find the information they need to book their marijuana treatment recommendations and apply for a MMJ registry card online.

                                                    Frequently Asked Questions About Medical Marijuana in Michigan

                                                    The online application process through the state’s website is simple and convenient. But it’s common for potential, new and current patients to have questions about the MMMP.

                                                    Below are some common FAQS to help clear up any confusion and uncertainty about becoming a medical cannabis patient in Michigan.

                                                    How to Find a Reputable Medical Marijuana Doctor in Michigan

                                                    There’s no shortage of medical cannabis doctors in Michigan. Though patients can see any approved physician for an evaluation, there are some provisions they must follow to have their medical marijuana certifications approved.

                                                    • There must be a preexisting patient/provider relationship prior to undergoing a medical evaluation for cannabis treatment.
                                                    • Minor patients must have documentation from a minimum of two different medical providers that states medical marijuana is an acceptable and authorized treatment for their qualifying condition.

                                                    The time it takes, and the associated expenses involved in the search for a credible and trustworthy medical provider who is knowledgeable about and amenable to cannabis therapy are not too appealing to many interested parties. These considerations are also potential barriers that keep patients from having immediate access to marijuana treatments that can immensely improve their health and quality of life.

                                                    Fortunately, Marijuana Doctors is a cannabis-friendly authority that maintains a comprehensive network of qualified medical marijuana doctors nationwide.

Patients are advised to start the renewal process within 90 days from the date of expiration to avoid a lapse of cannabis treatment. The cost for renewal is $40. That price does not include fees for the required medical health evaluation from a licensed MMJ licensed physician.

Replacement applications must be accompanied by proof of residency and age.

                                                    What Is a Caregiver?

                                                    Michigan allows individuals interested in helping valid cannabis patients procure, access, and receive their treatments to become primary caregivers. Caregiver applicants must apply for a license with the MMMP and pay the $40 application fee.

                                                    Additional Michigan marijuana caregiver criteria include:

                                                    • Be 21 or older
                                                    • Provide valid and acceptable documentation proving identity and residency
                                                    • Not have a felony conviction within the past 10 years

                                                    Upon approval, caregivers can purchase, transport, administer and cultivate cannabis for no more than 5 registered MMMP patients at any given time. The caregiver cultivation limit per patient is 12 plants.

                                                    Is Recreational Use Allowed in Michigan?

                                                    Yes, adult use is allowed for Michigan residents who are at least 21 years old.

                                                    Michigan is a reciprocity state. That means Michigan recognizes out-of-state medical cannabis patients from states that recognize Michigan medical cannabis cards. This allows out-of-state and nonresident medical cannabis patients to visit any Michigan marijuana dispensary to purchase their marijuana treatments.
