Register for Medical Marijuana in California after your Doctor's Visit

After obtaining a physician’s recommendation for medical marijuana, you can register for the Medical Marijuana Identification Card Program (MMICP) through your county’s Department of Public Health. This is voluntary, but having an MMIC can make it easier to prove your eligibility to law enforcement and provide certain legal protections.

A Brief History of California Medical Marijuana

California became the first state to legalize medical marijuana in 1996 with the passage of Proposition 215 (the Compassionate Use Act). Senate Bill 420, passed in 2003, further clarified and expanded the scope of the medical marijuana program, including the establishment of the MMICP.

Possession and Cultivation Limits in California

Medical marijuana patients and their primary caregivers can possess up to 8 ounces of dried marijuana and cultivate up to 6 mature or 12 immature marijuana plants. However, these limits can be exceeded if a doctor determines a patient requires more for their personal medical needs.

Medical Marijuana Caregiver Laws

A primary caregiver is someone who consistently assumes responsibility for the housing, health, or safety of a medical marijuana patient. Caregivers must be at least 18 years old (unless they are the parent of a minor patient) and can provide marijuana to their patients without fear of prosecution under state law.

Frequently Asked Questions

You can purchase medical marijuana from licensed medical marijuana dispensaries or collectives in California. Always bring your physician’s recommendation or MMIC when visiting a dispensary.

MMICs are generally valid for one year from the date of issuance. However, your physician’s recommendation may have a different expiration date. You will need to renew your MMIC and doctor’s recommendation as needed.

Medical marijuana is available in various forms in California, including:

  • Dried flower
  • Edibles
  • Tinctures
  • Topicals
  • Concentrates
  • Capsules
  • Transdermal patches
  • Suppositories

Minors can access medical marijuana if they have a qualifying medical condition, a physician’s recommendation, and the consent of a parent or legal guardian. In such cases, the parent or legal guardian must act as the minor’s primary caregiver.

The cost of medical marijuana in California can vary depending on factors like the dispensary, the product form, and the amount purchased. Prices can range from $10 to $60 or more for an eighth of an ounce of dried flower. Additionally, there is a fee for obtaining an MMIC, which can vary by county but typically ranges from $50 to $100 for non-Medi-Cal patients and $25 to $50 for Medi-Cal patients.
