Maryland Cannabis Patient Registry Now Open

The medical cannabis commission has announced that they are opening the patient registry to the public on April 24th. This marks a significant moment for Medical Marijuana Program and patients can finally look forward to receiving their medicine. There has been a plethora of information released, but the main points are noted in this article.

How do I register as a patient?

A patient can register as a qualifying patient on the new MMCC website once it is opened on April 24, 2017. Once a patient registers they will receive Unique Identifier Number/Commission-assigned number. This number is to be given to the physician who recommends them for medical cannabis.

How does the physician submit my recommendation?

The patient’s registered physician can link to the patient by entering the patient’s Commission-assigned number on the Commission’s secure database, and then issue an online certification for medical marijuana.  Patients can then obtain medical cannabis at any licensed Dispensary in Maryland by presenting their valid government ID.   

Is there a residency requirement to participate in the medical cannabis program?

No, patients do not have to live in Maryland to participate in the program. Although Maryland will not accept out-of-state patients, out-of-state residents can become in-state patients by receiving a recommendation from a licensed Maryland doctor registered with the state

When can I get medical cannabis?

The Maryland cannabis commission has stated they expect dispensaries to be up and running by August 2017.

Do I need to go to a special clinic to get a medical cannabis card?

No. You can establish a bonafide relationship with a doctor who can recommend you for medical cannabis.

How much medical cannabis (dried flower) can a qualifying patient possess at one time?

Patients can maintain up to four ounces per month.

That’s correct Jay Maryland is finally moving in the right direction. The cannabis commission has stated they aim for the end of summer for dispensaries to open near you. Establishing that doctor-patient relationship right now is the key.
