I qualify for the Medical Marijuana Registry Program. How do I apply?
First, obtain a medical marijuana recommendation from your doctor. Not all doctors are willing to recommend medical marijuana treatments. Cancer, glaucoma, and HIV/AIDS are 3 of the qualifying medical conditions. The physician is required to complete the Physician Certification form for you to submit with your application.
Make sure to include all of the following documents:
- Original, signed Patient Application (18 and over) (under 18)
- Original, signed Physician Certification (included in the application packet).
- A legible copy of the patient’s Michigan issued driver’s license or identification card
- $100 Application Fee (check or money order made out to the State of Michigan-MMMP)
- Complete, signed Release for Disclosure of information form
Once the application is complete, mail all documents in one envelope to:
Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs
Medical Marihuana Registry
PO Box 30083
Lansing, MI 48909
All items must be submitted in one envelope. It is suggested to mail using a “return receipt service,” so that you have confirmation your application was received. If your application is approved, it may take up to sixty days to receive your Medical Marijuana Registration Card in the mail. If your application is denied, you should receive a letter within 20 days.
Once approved, each cardholder may posses up to 2.5 ounces of usable marijuana or twelve plants. Plants must be kept in an enclosed, locked facility.
