Medical cannabis is an alternative treatment option for those suffering from medical conditions or symptoms that are untreatable with pharmaceutical-based treatments. Mississippi patients needing relief from their symptoms use medical marijuana to make their ailments more manageable to live with. 

As beneficial as cannabis is for countless users across the country, Mississippi residents must first register with the state’s medical cannabis authority. There are additional criteria in place for patients to adhere to in order to protect their right to medicate with marijuana safely.

To obtain a medical marijuana registry card, Mississippi residents must be at least 18 or older. They must provide proof of age and residency status as well. Patients under 18 may qualify to become medical patients, but they must have a qualified legal guardian or parent apply on their behalf.

In Mississippi, patients can provide the following types of proof:
