In order to be afforded legal protection of the Arizona Medical Marijuana law, qualified medical marijuana patients must register with the mandatory state medical marijuana program and possess a valid identification card by submitting a marijuana card application with the Arizona Department of Health Services. Card-carrying patients are authorized to obtain, possess or cultivate cannabis for medicinal use.
There are two types of Qualified Patients: Adult Patients and Patients Under the Age of 18. For patients under 18, the patient’s custodial parent or legal guardian must be designated as his or her caregiver. Adult patients do not need to designate a caregiver. There are different requirements for an adult patient and patients under the age of 18. To learn more about how to apply for a registry identification card for adult patients and patients under 18, use the links below:
As per state law, patients and registered caregivers, may possess more than 2.5 ounces of marijuana in a 14-day period, to be obtained from a registered nonprofit medical marijuana dispensary — Unless a patient lives more than 25 miles from the nearest dispensary, then the patient/caregiver may cultivate up to 12 marijuana plants in an enclosed, locked facility.
