The Medical Use of Marijuana Online System (MMJ Online System) is available for qualifying patients to register to possess marijuana for medical purposes.

An appointment with your qualified health care provider is required in order to begin the registration process. Your provider will evaluate you to determine if you are qualified for the medical use of marijuana.

Once your health care provider has issued you a certification, you may register with the Medical Use of Marijuana Program. If this is your first time registering, your provider will give you a PIN; this PIN is required for you to register in the MMJ Online System. See below links for further instructions.

If your registration is approved by the Program, you will receive a Medical Use of Marijuana Program ID Card.

Registrations must be renewed every year. See below links for further instructions.

Effective February 1, 2015, paper certifications from physicians are no longer sufficient for compliance with registration requirements under DPH Marijuana Regulations.  All patients, including those currently holding a paper certification, must obtain a Medical Use of Marijuana Program ID Card.
