In order to be afforded legal protection under the New Jersey Medical Marijuana law, qualified medical marijuana patients must register with the state patient registry and possess a valid state-issued identification card by submitting a medical marijuana card application to the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services “Medicinal Marijuana Program”.
A New Jersey medical marijuana card is an identification card issued by the DHSS, to a qualifying patient, personal caregiver, or dispensary agent. The New Jersey medical marijuana card verifies that the patient has received a written certification from a physician, stating that he or she may benefit from the medicinal use of marijuana, as per the qualifying medical conditions outlined by the State program.For purposes of the DHSS, and law enforcement, the medical marijuana card serves to identify those patients who are exempt from New Jersey criminal and civil penalties, for conduct pursuant to the medical use of marijuana.
New Jersey has strict regulations for finding a doctor to write a statement that will qualify you to obtain a marijuana card. The qualifying doctor must be registered with the state MMP. You also need to pay a visit to the doctor a couple of times before he can certify that you need to use medical marijuana for your condition.
