How to Get a Medical Marijuana Card in DC

Step1: Book an appointment

Schedule an appointment to see a doctor through Veriheal at a time that is most convenient for you. Consult with a doctor online for 10-15 mins to evaluate your ailments, and ask any questions you may have about medical marijuana treatment.

Step 2: Consult online

After the doctor approves you, you will receive a "Patient ID." You'll use this number to register with the DC DOH to complete your application online or in person. Alternatively, you just go to your local dispensary and they'll help you complete the state application.

Step 3: Consult in-person

Once you are approved and registered with the DOH, you'll wait for your card to come in the mail in 2-3 weeks. You can then begin buying cannabis from any dispensary in DC.

Every DC patient will need to be re-certified annually by a licensed physician. Veriheal will get in touch with you when your certification is approaching its expiration to help you set up a renewal consultation.
