HOW TO GET A MEDICAL MARIJUANA CARD ONLINE
You’ll need a few things to get an MMJ Card. The first thing that you’ll need, obviously, is residency in a state where medical marijuana is legal. There are 23 of them, ranging all across the country from Alaska to Maine, with Washington and Colorado having legalized marijuana outright. Next, you’ll need a prescription. The signup process differs from state to state, with fees ranging from $15 - $150 for the issuance of an MMJ “green card,” though no matter where you live, you’ll absolutely need a note from your doctor. Getting the recommendation takes three main steps.
STEP 1: APPLY
Regardless of where you get your MMJ card, you will need to fill out a questionnaire. This will help the doctor establish a medical diagnosis and alert them to any potential conflicts that could prevent a recommendation.
STEP 2: EVALUATION
Many states allow for patients to obtain a medical marijuana card online. But they all require evaluation by a doctor before the card is issued. Remember that the doctors are there to ask and answer questions so take advantage of it.
STEP 3: MMJ CARD DELIVERY
Once the doctor evaluates you and signs off, the only thing left is delivery. Most online sites offer instant digital downloads as the physical copy is mailed out. Some even ship out physical copies the same day.
NOW TO FIND YOUR DOCTOR
I'm sorry, did I say your doctor? I meant to say a doctor. Except for in Hawaii and Oregon, the recommendation does not necessarily have to come from your primary care physician. It can come from any doctor that feels cannabis could treat a condition you have.
Proposition 215 established new rules to help patients obtain MMJ cards. This helped stimulate an explosion of prop 215 compliant businesses. But with thousands of services and storefronts available, which do you choose? Thankfully there are websites for this sort of thing nowadays. Below is a list of places to get a recommendation online.
