How to Get a Medical Marijuana Card in Maine
Still not sure about the process?
A medical marijuana patient in Maine can receive medical cannabis from a caregiver or purchase it from a dispensary. They may also choose to cultivate their cannabis on their property or a designated secure cultivation site.
It is still illegal to purchase cannabis recreationally outside the medical market. There are no taxes on the sale or purchase of medical cannabis for medical use. There will be a 10% state sales tax once recreational sales start. Recreational marijuana was already legalized in the state, but sales are currently on hold.
The first municipal legalization of recreational cannabis occurred in 2013 in Portland and 2014 in South Portland. Portland legalized the possession of 2.5 ounces within the city limits. In 2016 the state legalized recreational marijuana. However, the legalization of cannabis has not been fully implemented so far.
Smoking in public places is still prohibited, and so is inside a car or anywhere in a public view. Driving a vehicle, vessel or boat under the influence of cannabis is also not allowed.
Caregivers and qualified patients can possess up to 6 mature plants and 2.5 ounces of the dry flower. Patients and caregivers can possess an incidental amount of cannabis, they can possess up to 12 nonflowering plants and 8 pounds of harvested, unprepared flower. It is strictly prohibited to gift or transfer cannabis to another person.
To become a medical marijuana patient in Maine, you must meet specific requirements according to DHHS rules and regulations to be added to the registry. A physical card is not obligated and there is no application fee for the MMMP. A medical marijuana card in Maine is valid for one year and needs to be renewed by the patient and designated caregiver annually.
There are no longer a list of qualifying conditions that a patient must have in order to get approved for medical cannabis. The final decision is ultimately up to the doctor deciding whether or not medical marijuana is right for their patient.
Most doctors see patients for a list of similar conditions. These include, but are not limited to:
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Chronic pain
- Hepatitis C
To get a medical marijuana card, you must obtain a Medical Marijuana Program Certification from a licensed physician that is registered with the state of Maine to treat patients with medical cannabis. The physician must be registered with the Maine State Department of Health’s Medical Marijuana Program. To qualify for medical marijuana in Maine you must be at least 18 years of age, live in the state of Maine, have a valid ID, and have some type of proof of residency for the state. You can find more information on the program here.
