How to Get a Medical Marijuana Card in MN


Schedule an appointment to see a medical marijuana doctor in MN through Veriheal at a time that is most convenient for you. Provide basic medical history and book your appointment with a licensed medical marijuana doctor. You will need medical records and the doctor(s) can approve any qualifying condition.


Consult with a doctor for 10-15 minutes to evaluate your ailments, and ask any questions you may have about medical marijuana treatment. After the appointment is complete and if you are approved, the doctor will fill out a recommendation form for medical marijuana. Once you have this you can then apply to the state.


Once you are approved, you’ll register with the state and submit an application. The state will process your application and notify you of your approval and mail your card. Once you have your card in hand, you can begin purchasing from dispensaries.

In Minnesota, patients will need to re-certify their license annually by seeing a licensed physician again. Veriheal will get in touch with you when your certification is approaching its expiration to help you setup a renewal consultation.

The Status of Cannabis Legalization in Minnesota

With White Earth Nation voting to legalize medical cannabis by a 994-150 tribal vote, patients who seek relief from its many healing properties can now consume it without penalty, reports Red Lake Nation news. Six years after the state of Minnesota legalized medical cannabis in 2014, “the measure allows the Tribal Council to create its own rules governing medical cannabis on the reservation that wouldn’t be subject to Minnesota’s medical marijuana laws, which are considered among the most restrictive in the nation,” reports the news source.

Minnesota Public Radio (MPR) News reported in 2019 just how restrictive the program is. “More than four years in, the state’s program serves relatively few people and is considered to be too expensive by many patients,” says MPR news. “The exact form the program will take in the future is unclear, as some lawmakers push for Minnesota to join other states that allow the sale of recreational marijuana.” 

While Minnesota and dozens of other states consider recreational use along with medicinal, up to 11 states in the U.S. legally allow both types in their regions, proving it not only helps patients, but it seriously boosts the economy. 

Qualifying Conditions and Costs

Minnesota’s initial qualifying conditions for the state medical cannabis program included:

In August 2020, the state added age-related macular degeneration, after Minnesota Commissioner of Health Dr. Ed Ehlinger added autism spectrum disorders and obstructive sleep apnea to the list in 2017. 

Along with having a qualifying condition, a Minnesota resident must prove their place of address with a valid state driver’s license or identification card. The cost for a Minnesota medical cannabis card is $200 annually. Patients who have  SSI, SSD, or are enrolled in MinnesotaCare only pay $50 annually.  The annual renewal fee for a medical cannabis card is $50.


Minnesota details a five-step process to become a caregiver, beginning with having the patient’s physician certify that they need assistance in the medical cannabis program. After approval by a physician, the caregiver fills out an online application, which includes a criminal background check that costs $15 and is payable by the caregiver. A certified caregiver for any patient must be at least 21 years of age and have a valid Minnesota driver’s license or state identification card.

Possession and Cultivation of Medical Marijuana in Minnesota

Minnesota has very strict possession and cultivation regulations, with only two in-state manufacturers producing all medical cannabis in Minnesota. Based on state law, “manufacturers are required to ensure that the medical cannabis distributed contains a maximum of a 30-day supply of the dosage determined for that patient.” Additionally, “pharmacists at registered Cannabis Patient Centers recommend specific dosage and type for patients.” Permissible forms of medical cannabis include but not limited to oil, pill, and any vaporized delivery method, which does not use raw plant or dry leaves.

Places to Visit in Minnesota After Enjoying Your Medicine

Famous for the Mall of America and the International Wolf Center, not to mention the Split Rock Lighthouse State Park, Minnesota has more than enough to keep locals and visitors enticed. The midwestern state, bordering Canada and Lake Superior, also boasts St. Cloud Clemens Garden, with up to 80,000 annual plants among benches, swings, ponds, and fountains. For more of Mother Nature, Minnesota's 32,000-acred oldest state park of Itasca has hiking trails, bike routes and Wilderness Drive for scenic byway view. If time allows, take a detour on the way to the dispensary to any of the below places for some Minnesota memory making. 

Mall of America

It’s America’s biggest mall with more than 500 shops to peruse in Bloomington. If one day of shopping is not enough, hotel accommodations at the mall make it possible to stay overnight. Theaters and restaurants throughout the mall give visitors chances to get off their feet when shopping to enjoy a movie or snack. Some even visit the Mall of America at certain times of the year during any one of the 400-holiday events held annually.

St. Cloud Clemens Garden

Made possible by the Munsinger Clemens Botanical Society, this garden is one-of-a-kind, filled with more than 1,100 rose bushes and 80,000 annual plants that bloom all year round. Visitors can enjoy the vast garden in several ways, whether sitting on a bench, picnicking at a pond, or taking a swing. The site also hosts Music in the Garden bi-monthly and art fairs, featuring famed musicians and artists from around Minnesota.

St. Paul

As one of the Twin Cities, St. Paul compliments Minneapolis well. Built around the Cathedral of St. Paul, the city is lined with Golden Age mansions along Summit Avenue, the largest and longest collection of Victorian edifices in the U.S. according to Planetware. Along with sightseeing up to 373 original mansions, the top tourist news source adds “the area also offers plenty of things to do for families, including an excellent zoo with a neighboring amusement park, a science museum, and a children's museum.”
