Slowly but surely, more and more states are permitting recreational use of marijuana to its residents. Many more states, however, only permit cannabis use to those medical patients who have specific chronic conditions at this time. When this is the case, a patient must be approved for a state-issued medical marijuana card. To do this, he or she typically first starts the process by finding local marijuana doctors in the area with whom to consult. During this consultation, the doctor can determine whether the patient qualifies as a medical marijuana patient. If the patient qualifies, the doctor can then typically make a recommendation to the state on his or her behalf.
In addition to supplying the patient with the required recommendation, medical marijuana doctors can often assist in applying for a medical marijuana card onsite after the consultation. If you intend to apply for your medical card after meeting with your doctor, be sure to bring all relevant medical documentation proving the nature of your condition, as well as other physician contact information. This can help streamline the process significantly, as it cuts down on the amount of time required by the cannabis doctor’s staff to research your medical history.
After all of the required documentation and fees are submitted to the state, it can take up to several weeks or even months for your items to process, so please be patient. You may be able to call and request updates on the status of your application with the state office.
