Once submitted, the doctor is notified and will issue a recommendation for medical cannabis treatment. The patient returns to their profile to pay the $15 state application fee and submit an online application to the state.


The state will process the patient’s application and will issue the card and email the patient a copy of their medical cannabis card. Once you have your card in hand, you can begin purchasing from dispensaries.

The Status of Cannabis Legalization in Utah

In recent Utah cannabis news, House Bill 204 was heard by state legislators. This bill seeks to protect parents’ right to be part of Utah’s medical cannabis program. Additionally, House Bill 72 seeks to allow medical cannabis pharmacies to deliver medical cannabis to qualified, state-registered patients.

Utah’s statewide medical cannabis program was voted into law in 2018, and the state has finally opened all 14 cannabis dispensaries outlined in Prop 2. 

For now, the more than 2,800 registered cardholders in the statewide medical cannabis program are beholden to only a handful of dispensaries. The upside to the downside of limited dispensaries is that Utah allows the sale of cannabis in several forms including tablet, capsule, concentrated oil, liquid suspension, topical preparation, transdermal preparation, gelatinous cube, Unprocessed cannabis flower in a blister pack containing no more than one gram of flower pods in each individual blister, and wax or resin. 

As state and federal laws continue to change from year to year on medicinal and recreational cannabis use, assuredly Utah will be modifying its program as patients and citizens demand Utah keep up with what they promised. 

Possession of Medical Cannabis Prior to 2021

Prior to January 2021, under Utah law, patients meeting certain criteria outlined in the Medical Cannabis Act may legally possess medical cannabis without a medical cannabis card. Compliance with the Utah Medical Cannabis Act may not protect patients from liability for violations of federal law or the laws of other states. Questions regarding this provision of the law are best answered by an attorney who can provide legal counsel specific to an individual’s situation.

Medical marijuana Patients 18 and older, a parent or legal guardian of a minor patient, and designated caregivers may purchase medical cannabis. Each must have a Utah medical cannabis card.

Utah Medical Marijuana Qualifying Conditions

According to the state, medical cannabis in Utah is also available to allow residents who suffer from “pain lasting longer than two weeks that is not adequately managed, in the qualified medical provider’s opinion, despite treatment attempts using conventional medications other than opioids or opiates or physical interventions” or have “a rare condition or disease that affects less than 200,000 individuals in the U.S., as defined in federal law, and that is not adequately managed despite treatment attempts using conventional medications (other than opioids or opiates) or physical interventions.”

Conditions qualifying patients for medical cannabis under the Utah Medical Cannabis Program include:

Along with having qualifying medical conditions, a patient applying for the medical cannabis program in Utah must prove their residency with a valid driver’s license or current state identification card. The annual card registration fee is $50 and must be paid when approved. 

If you don’t have one of the qualifying medical conditions listed, your certified physician can appeal to the Compassionate Use Board if they feel your condition can benefit from the use of medical marijuana. 

Laws for Registered Caregivers

Utah has set up a caregiver application process completely online, beginning with the registered patient designating a caregiver on their application. After a caregiver has been named, they must prove they are a Utah resident with a valid driver’s license or current state identification card. The caregiver must also undergo a background check to be approved for the Guardian Card. Once approved, a caregiver license fee of $68.25 must be paid. If the caregiver has two patients, the secondary license is only $15.

Places to Visit in Utah After Enjoying Your Medicine

The natural wonders of Zion and Arches National Park seen in Utah are unforgettable, drawing thousands of visitors to the Beehive State every year. Whether it is skiing, scenic drives and off-road pursuits, hiking, biking, or camping, being in Utah offers many adventures. What makes the state even more interesting is based on its elevation, one can hike in the heat in one area of Utah, and the same day ski down a snowy mountain. Other areas of Utah frequented by visitors and locals alike are the Canyonlands and the Bryce Canyon National Parks and the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. For those who love the water, the Great Salt Lake is where to go. Next time taking a trip to the dispensary is planned, make a little extra time to stop at any of Utah’s most notable neck of the woods.

Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park

Just as it sounds, Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park is a light crimson adult sandbox. Formed by the wind, the everchanging dunes are huge mounds to be explored. Whether walking, sandboarding, or riding an ATV, the state park has many ways to play all afternoon long. Many come for the beauty alone, making a popular photography spot to take in click after click. For those who need more than a day to take it all in, a nearby campground on the dunes' edge makes a stargazing sleepover possible.

Natural Bridges National Monument

The three Mother Nature made bridges of Kachina, Owachomo, and Sipapu are securely footed to the earth for all to see. While all three bridges can be climbed, Sipapu Bridge is the most popular of all, giving hikers a 1.2 mile round trip of steep rock stairs and ladders. Considered a little easier, Kachina Bridge is a 1.5-mile round trip hike with less climbing involved. Also on site is the Horsecollar Ruins, which is the remains of 700-year-old Native American edifices.

St. George

A family-friendly town, the St. George Children’s Museum is one stop that many make when in town, starting off the trip with interactive exhibits and demonstrations. Town Square Park, made up of huge rock slabs, and Red Hills Desert Garden, filled with colorful cactus and flowers, are also great ways to enjoy St. George. A short drive out of town brings visitors and locals alike to the Kayenta Art Village, a community of beauty and relaxation. Made up of art galleries, a day spa, quaint shops, and a cafe, makes a stay in the area unforgettable.
