How do I become a legal medical marijuana patient?
1. See a qualified physician for a certification exam.
Dr. Reynolds will do an initial exam, take into account medical records and may diagnose a qualifying condition.
2. Register and obtain a medical marijuana use registry identification card.
Dr. Reynolds places potential patients on the state’s medical marijuana use registry, so they can apply for the state identification card. Potential patients, or their caregivers, must submit an application to the state’s Office of Medical Marijuana Use, either mailed-in or online, with a copy of a state ID or proof of residency and the required $75 fee. An approved passport photo is required with the application if it’s being mailed to the office. Identification cards expire one year after the approved date. Patients or caregivers can renew the card by submitting an application 45 days before the expiration date.
3. Purchase medication at a state-licensed medical marijuana dispensary.
