How to Get a Medical Marijuana Card in MT

Step1: Book an appointment

Schedule an appointment to see a medical marijuana doctor in MT 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.

Step 2: Consult with an mmj Doctor

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

Step 3: Get approved

After you meet with the physician and evaluate your condition, once you're approved you will receive a completed physician certification. This form outlines your approval for medical marijuana. After you receive this you can apply online with the Montana Department of Health to receive your medical marijuana card.

The application fee paid to Montana is $30. Once you submit your fee and application, the state will review it and send you your card in the mail within 4 weeks. Once your card is received you can start buying your medical cannabis directly from the dispensary.

In Montana, 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.

About Medical Marijuana in Montana

You have to be a legal resident of Montana to receive a card and must be above 18 years old. To prove that, you will need a copy of your valid Montana driver’s license or a Montana State issued ID card.

Qualifying Conditions

In addition to that, to be legally allowed to use medical marijuana your doctor must confirm that you have one of the following qualifying conditions:

  • Cancer, glaucoma or positive status for human immunodeficiency virus, or acquired immune deficiency syndrome when the condition or disease results in symptoms that seriously and adversely affect the patient’s health status;
  • Cachexia or wasting syndrome
  • Severe chronic pain that is persistent pain of severe intensity that significantly interferes with daily activities as documented by the patient’s treating physician
  • Intractable nausea or vomiting
  • Epilepsy or an intractable seizure disorder
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Painful peripheral neuropathy
  • A central nervous system disorder resulting in chronic, painful spasticity or muscle spasms
  • Admittance into hospice care
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

After confirming that you have one of the conditions shown above, your physician will fill out the Physician Statement for a Debilitating Medical Condition form and provide it to yo. Ince you receive that you can apply for your medical marijuana card in the Montana Medical Marijuana Program (MMMP) website.

As a patient you can complete the Registered Cardholder Application that is also available on the MMMP website. The application fee costs $30.00 and can be paid online at the time of the application.

These application forms can all be found on the Montana Medical Marijuana Program Forms page.

Caregivers in Montana

Montana has all but disbanded both the caregiver program and distribution programs and replaced them with the Provider/Marijuana Infused Products Provider (MIPP) program. Provider/MIPP fees are $50 and will not be refunded if the if the application is incomplete, denied or the card is revoked.

All applications require a photocopy of a valid (not expired) Montana driver’s license or state issued ID, to prove Montana residency. Change request forms do not require a copy of a driver’s license or state issued ID and do not require a fee.

All provider/MIPP applicants must submit fingerprints at the time of application, and have their background check completed, before their application can be processed. Provider/MIPP applicants must be named by a registered cardholder (patient) applicant, in order to become a provider/MIPP. Provider/MIPP applicants must send at least one change request form for a patient naming the applicant as their provider, with their provider application packet.

Medical Marijuana Access, Possession and Limits

A registered cardholder may possess up to one (1) ounce of usable marijuana, four (4) mature plants, and twelve (12) seedlings.

A provider or marijuana-infused product provider may possess four (4) mature plants, twelve (12) seedlings, and one (1) ounce of usable marijuana for each registered cardholder who has named the person as the registered cardholder’s provider.

Some medical marijuana patients will claim they have a doctor’s prescription for medical marijuana, but marijuana prescriptions are in fact illegal. The federal government classifies marijuana as a schedule I drug. Therefore doctors are unable to prescribe marijuana to their patients, and medical marijuana patients cannot go to a pharmacy to fill a prescription for medical marijuana. Instead, medical marijuana physicians will supply patients with a medical marijuana recommendation in compliance with state law.

According to Montana medical marijuana law, patients and their caregivers may grow medical marijuana for the patient’s private use and each may possess 4 mature plants, 12 seedlings, and 1 ounce of usable marijuana.. The Montana Medical Marijuana Act does not allow for the purchase or sale of medical cannabis and caregivers must agree to supply cannabis to registered patients for free.

Licensed medical marijuana providers (dispensaries) can serve more than three patients at one time. It also allows them to hire employees to grow, dispense and distribute medical marijuana.

Montana has a medical marijuana program, but it is not decriminalized. This means those caught with marijuana could get into serious trouble if they are not a medical patient.  Not only is Montana weed growing a felony without medical need, looking like you intend to sell it is also a felony.   Montana has mandatory jail time sentences for those convicted of selling weed and misdemeanor charges for all forms of possession. Those arrested for possession (that are not patients) will be required to take a drug education course.

Being surrounded by Idaho and the Dakotas, Montana is on its own with its marijuana policies. Although Montana weed growing is a unique situation for the area, it doesn’t mean that Montana is very weed- friendly.

Cultivation

Patients who have not named a provider can cultivate up to four seedlings and four mature plants – with one ounce of usable medicinal marijuana at any time. 

Patients who have designated a provider are not allowed to grow their own medicinal marijuana.

Places to Visit in MT After Enjoying Your Medicine

Vast open spaces and wild and wonderful National Parks are the primary draw-cards which attract thousands of annual visitors to the sprawling northwestern state of Montana. Montana is well-known for its numerous outdoor activities, including an array of winter sports; water sports such as fishing, canoeing, and kayaking; as well as hiking and biking.
It is also the perfect place from which to access magnificent Glacier National Park, and the North and Northeast entrances of Yellowstone National Park, both containing rich environments to backpack, hike, and explore.

Glacier National Park

Featuring stunning glacier-carved mountain peaks which tower over river-bisected valleys, Glacier National Park covers over 1,500 square miles of wilderness in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, near Montana’s border with Canada. The park draws thousands of visitors who come to experience a wide variety of outdoor recreational facilities including camping, back-packing, hiking, cycling and wildlife viewing. You can explore the remarkable scenery on your own or join one of the many guided tours and activities on offer, including bus, boat and raft tours as well as guided hikes and horseback rides. Depending on how eager you are to get back to nature you can choose from comfortable hotel and lodge rooms, rent a cozy cabin or rough-it in a tent or RV.

Yellowstone National Park

Established in 1872, Yellowstone National Park is the world’s oldest national park and a national treasure which attracts thousands of visitors every year – June to August is the busiest time and visitors need to plan ahead if they visit during this peak period when traffic can cause longer drive times and lodges and campgrounds fill early. Start your visit at one of the Visitors’ Centers and download the Yellowstone App to give you all the resources you need to fully enjoy your experience in the park. A few of the highlights of the park that you need to add to your itinerary include Old Faithful Geyser, the gurgling mud at Mud Volcano, wildlife watching in the Hayden and Pelican Valleys and the crystal-clear fish-laden waters below Fishing Bridge (unfortunately no fishing has been allowed for many years).

Helena

Founded as a humble gold camp during the Gold Rush, Montana’s capital city Helena is ideally located between Yellowstone National Park and Glacier National Park. Besides providing the ideal base-camp for visitors wanting to explore these amazing parks, Helena offers several city attractions when you need a change of pace. Cyclists can look forward to exploring over 75 miles of cycling and mountain bike trails, many of which originate in downtown. History lovers can visit the Montana State Capitol Building, take a ride on the Last Chance Tour Train or go on a self-guided walking tour through the Westside Mansion District to admire the homes of the miners who struck it lucky. After a busy day you can relax in the rejuvenating waters of the natural hot springs at Broadwater Hot Springs.
