Getting your medical marijuana card is simple, fast, and affordable. You’ll need a recommendation from a licensed California marijuana doctor. However, you can schedule an in-person or online appointment. If you are approved, the doctor fills out a recommendation form that allows you to apply to the state. You’ll need proof of California residency.
How to Apply for a Medical Card
Once approved, you then register with the state and submit an application. After the application is processed and you’re notified of your approval, you’ll receive your card by mail. Re-certification is required by law every other year. While recreational cannabis is fully legal in California, there are some benefits to a medical marijuana identification card.
Benefits to a Medical Marijuana Card
- Exemption from sales and use tax saves you 15%
- Availability to adults under the age of 21
- Medical patients can purchase up to 8 oz of cannabis per day, compared to the one-ounce purchase restriction on recreational marijuana users
- Medical marijuana is often lower priced than recreational options
- Access to higher potency
