How to get your medical marijuana card in Maryland

In order to get a registry identification card (medical marijuana card) through the Maryland Medical Marijuana Program, you must go through the following steps:

  1. Complete and submit an online state application. Visit the MMCC registry (OneStop Portal) ​and click Create Account under the Patients heading.

    You will need the following to complete your application:
    • A valid, accessible email account.
    • The last four digits of your Social Security Number.
    • An electronic copy of a valid government-issued photo ID (driver’s license, state id, military id or passport).
    • Proof that applicant lives in Maryland (documents must have name/address and no two documents can be from the same agency).
      Two of the following documents:
      • MVA registration card or title
      • • Utility, telephone or cable/satellite TV bill
      • • Bank account statement
      • • Property tax bill
      • • Mortgage statement or proof of home ownership (Deed, Title, Bill of Sale)
      • • Major credit card bill (Visa, MasterCard, Wal-Mart, Target, etc.)
      • • Residential rental contract (lease or rental contract between landlord and tenant which ​includes all signatures)
      • • Selective Service Card
      • • Federal, state or local government mail issued by the state of Maryland (i.e. Social Security, social services)
      • • Car insurance policy
  1. Verify your email address. As soon as you have completed and submitted an online application form, a verification email will be sent to the email address you provided on your application. You must click the verification link in the email message to verify your email account. Without performing this step, your application is not complete and will not be reviewed by the Commission.
  1. Once your application is sent, you will receive an email indicating whether or not you have been approved. Please retain the approval email for your records. It contains your Username, which you will need to log in to the Patient registry (OneStop Portal), as well as your MMCC Patient ID Number, which your physician will need to issue your written certification for medical cannabis. Once you have a written certification, you will also need to provide your Patient ID Number when visiting a licensed dispensary to purchase medical cannabis.
  1. After receiving MMCC approval, you are ready to visit a provider registered with MMCC to obtain a valid certification. Sign up on where you can connect with a licensed medical practitioner, if you are 18 years old or older, to see if medical cannabis is right for you. All medical practitioners are fully licensed and registered. Once fully registered and in possession of a valid certification, you will be able to print your temporary MMCC patient ID card, this will be required to purchase medical cannabis from a licensed Maryland dispensary.​ The MMCC will mail your medical cannabis card to you in approximately 4 weeks.

In 2014, the State of Maryland passed House Bill 881 which effectively legalized medical marijuana and established the Natalie M. La Prade Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission (MMCC). The MMIC was created to set regulations for a patient registry and identification cards, dispensary licensing, settling fees and possession limits. Registered Qualified Patients can no legally consume and possess cannabis in the state. The list of qualifying conditions for medical marijuana includes cachexia, anorexia, wasting syndrome, severe or chronic pain, severe nausea, seizures, severe or persistent muscle spasms, glaucoma, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), or another chronic medical condition which is severe and for which other treatments have been ineffective.

Only specific medical practitioners can certify patients for medical marijuana. The list of medical practitioners who can recommend cannabis includes doctors and nurses who are licensed by the Maryland Board of Nursing, Maryland Board of Physicians, the Podiatrist Medical Examiners, or the Maryland Board of Dental Examiners. Providers must register with the State of Maryland in order to make medical marijuana recommendations. The amount of cannabis that a patient may purchase is determined by the recommending medical practitioner. The MMCC states that “the certification issued by a provider for a patient identifies the amount of dried flower and THC that the patient may purchase in a 30-day period.” Personal cultivation is currently illegal.
