How to Register for Maryland's Medical Cannabis Program

Become a Patient or Caregiver

 

STEP 1: SCHEDULE YOUR APPOINTMENT

Visit a registered physician to see if medical cannabis could be the alternative treatment option for you.

A patient needs an in-person visit with a registered physician with whom the patient has a “bona fide physician-patient relationship.” 

If the patient meets the physician’s criteria for treatment with medical cannabis, the physician will issue a written certification.

The physician records the written certification on the Commission’s website.

You may show your government issued ID when purchasing your medicine. A physical patient ID card is not required but you may request one when you receive your written certification for $50. Replacement cards are $100.
