Upcoming changes for patients

Jan. 1, 2022

  • Only first-time applicants 18-20 years old will need to submit certifications from two providers from two different medical practices when they apply. If the patient is homebound the providers do not need to be from different practices.  Patients that have a valid registry identification card prior to Jan. 1, 2022 will maintain their current registration.

Feb. 14, 2022

  • The application processing fee will be $29.50. 

Upcoming changes for providers

Jan. 1, 2022

Providers will need to include the following information on provider certifications. 

  • Patient address
  • Recommending physician DEA 
  • The maximum THC potency level 
  • The recommended product, if any
  • Directions for use
  • The patient's daily authorized quantity, if such quantity exceeds the maximum statutorily allowed amount for the patient's age


We will continue to share more information about how these changes will affect the application process.

New form required by the Marijuana Enforcement Division

Starting Jan. 1, 2022 if a patient's provider authorizes them to purchase more than the statutory daily sales limit, they will need a Uniform Certification Form from the Marijuana Enforcement Division that has been completed by their recommending provider. The patient does not need to include this form with their application for a medical marijuana registry identification card as it is separate from the provider certification that is submitted to the Registry.
For more information about the form visit the Marijuana Enforcement Division's website.
