Utah Medical Marijuana Card

The requirements to get a medical cannabis card include:

  1. Must be a Utah Resident;
  2. Must have at least one qualifying condition;
  3. Submit application online;
  4. Meet in-person with a medical provider registered with the Utah Department of Health to recommend medical cannabis;
  5. Medical provider has certified your eligibility for a medical cannabis card online; and
  6. Pay a $15 application fee online.

With a recommendation letter from a medical provider, a patient can only purchase medical cannabis from one medical cannabis pharmacy and only until December 31, 2020. In contrast, a medical cannabis card allows a patient to purchase medical cannabis from any medical cannabis pharmacy in Utah even after December 31, 2020 if the patient renews their card. Recommendation letters are not registered with the department while medical cannabis cards are.

NOTE: If a patient is a minor under the age of 21 or if they are an adult over 21 but do not have a qualifying condition, the application must be reviewed by the Compassionate Use Board. A minor cannot receive a medical cannabis card unless their parent or legal guardian qualifies for a medical cannabis guardian card.
