Any individual who lives in the state of Maryland whose provider recommends medical
cannabis as a treatment option for a qualifying medical condition is eligible
to register with the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission (MMCC) as a patient.
Qualifying medical conditions include cachexia,
anorexia, wasting syndrome, severe or chronic pain, severe nausea, seizures,
severe or persistent muscle spasms, glaucoma, post-traumatic stress
disorder (PTSD), or another chronic medical condition which is severe and for
which other treatments have been ineffective.
Please note: Minor
patients (under the age of 18) are required to have
at least one caregiver at all times, who is a parent or guardian of the minor.
A minor patient may have up to four caregivers, two of whom are a
parent/guardian, and two additional adults over the age of 21 designated by a
parent or guardian.
While the registration processes and requirements differ for adult and minor patients, both are completed online. The online application form must be completed
and submitted in one session; you will not be able to save and complete the application at a later time.
It is essential that you have the required information and documents in an electronic format ready for upload before starting the application process. Please carefully review the requirements below and the appropriate guidance documents to ensure you are prepared to complete the entire application before beginning the process.
At this time, the cost of medical cannabis is not reimbursable by any private or public insurance plan, Medicare or Medicaid, or through Veterans' covered plans.
Maryland residents should be aware that transporting cannabis across state lines is a federal offense.
