Everyone wants to know how to get a medical marijuana card in Maryland, and we are here to help you learn everything that’s needed to become a patient in Maryland. First things first, the state had big plans to allow out of state patients to gain access to their program. However, we haven’t seen anyone from out of state successfully be approved and the state has since pushed back that opportunity for out of state patients. Thus, the Maryland medical marijuana program is only accepting in-state patients at this time.

What is the Maryland Medical Marijuana Program?

The medical marijuana program in Maryland was approved by lawmakers in 2013. The program recently became operational with some dispensaries opening in September of 2017. Multiple growers have received their final licenses to grow as well. The MMP program allows people to become legal medical marijuana patients in the state and gain access to cannabis dispensaries all throughout the state.
