How to Get a Medical Marijuana Card in NH

1BOOK AN APPOINTMENT

When we’re booking appointments in New Hampshire, you will schedule an appointment to see a medical marijuana doctor in NH 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.

2CONSULT WITH A MMJ DOCTOR

Consult with a doctor for 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.

3GET APPROVED

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 New Hampshire, 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 NH

Signed into law by then Gov. Maggie Hassan in 2013, the medical cannabis program has been alive and well in the Live Free or Die State. Though medical cannabis flies in the Granite State, recreational use is still an issue, with advocates pushing to see a change in the 2020 election, which does not look good. Meanwhile, citizens feel otherwise, according to the University of New Hampshire Poll, reporting up to 68% of New Hampshire residents support recreational use.

The 2019 poll report reads that “the issue of legalizing marijuana in New Hampshire has been subject to debate for years.” The poll report continues, noting regional cannabis allies who feel the same. “In recent years, all of New Hampshire’s neighbors–Maine, Massachusetts, Vermont, and Canada have legalized marijuana for recreational purposes.”

While advocates argue that officials must be more progressive when it comes to politics and cannabis, officials met them halfway in 2017, decriminalizing the drug for possession of small amounts. While recreational use hangs in the balance, New Hampshire has rolled out a solid medical cannabis program for eligible patients.

Qualifying Conditions

Patients must have qualifying conditions and exhibit debilitating or severe symptoms. New Hampshire recognizes the following conditions:

Additionally, the condition must be severely debilitating or terminal, or its treatment has produced at least one of the following symptoms:

Lastly, severe pain that has not responded to previously prescribed medication or surgical measures, or for which other treatment options produce serious side effects, also makes patients eligible for a medical cannabis card.

Along with any qualifying condition, a patient must be at least 18 years old to apply for a card and prove they are New Hampshire residents with a current driver’s license or state identification card. The state also mandates that a patient and provider must have an ongoing relationship for at least three months, with some exceptions made for special circumstances. 

Caregivers

Like a cannabis patient cardholder, a caregiver must also be a resident of the state and able to prove so with a current driver’s license or state identification card. A caregiver, unlike a patient, must be at least 21 years old, and designated as such on the patient’ application. Also, a caregiver must not have any felony conviction against them to be registered with the state. A criminal background check is performed on all prospective caregivers.

Possession Limits

A qualifying patient shall not obtain more than 2 ounces of usable cannabis directly or through the qualifying patient’s designated caregiver during a 10-day period. Since New Hampshire decriminalized possession of small amounts of cannabis for any resident 18 years or older who has less than three-quarters of an ounce of cannabis; however the violation comes with a possible $100. Additional offenses raise fines.  Fines rise for third and fourth offenses. 

The fines also apply to any resident found with a large amount of cannabis-infused products including edibles, drinks, tinctures, and ointments. If found violating more than three-quarters of an ounce of any of the notes could result in a $350 fine and one year prison time. 

As for hash, any resident 18 years or older who possesses less than 5 grams of hash will only be guilty of a violation and a possible $100 fine, which rises with additional offenses. Possessing more than 5 grams or more of hash is a misdemeanor, which could cost up to $350 in fines and no more than one year imprisonment.
