Patient Registration Form
2. Print the Patient Email and Acknowledgement Form
On the Patient Email and Acknowledgement Form you’ll need to:
Write in the email address you’d like to use to receive private messages about your health. It is best to use your personal email address and not a work one. Bring this form along with you to your appointment and give it to your health care practitioner. During your visit, ask your practitioner for an appointment summary and a list of the medications that are currently prescribed to you. Take these documents with you when you go pick up your medical cannabis.
After you meet with your health care practitioner, you’ll receive an email from the OMC that will contain:
- Confirmation of your condition by your health care practitioner.
- Your unique registration link for the Medical Cannabis Patient Registry.
3. Register Online
Once you receive your certification email, you will be ready to register. Before you click on the registration link, gather your:
- Government-issued ID: state ID, driver’s license or passport
- If applicable, your government medical assistance plan ID: CHAMPVA, Medicaid or MinnesotaCare, Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
- Camera or a camera-equipped mobile phone to capture/scan images of your IDs
- Credit/debit card or check — the program’s payment processor, U.S. Bank, accepts all of the above methods of payment for the annual registration fee
- When your account has been approved, you’ll be notified by email.
4. Buy Medical Marijuana at a local MN Dispensary
At this point you will be officially registered with the program and have your MN marijuana card. It’s time to get your butt in gear, find a dispensary and go shopping!
About The Minnesota Medical Marijuana Program Overview
Type of program: Medical only
Minnesota’s Medical Cannabis Program allows registered patients to purchase up to a 90-day supply of medicine as determined by a state-certified medical marijuana doctor.
Renewal and replacement
If a patient’s certification is soon to expire, they must contact their health care practitioner to get recertified. Once recertified, patients will receive another enrollment email with your application link.
Patients can renew a Minnesota medical marijuana card as early as 90 days before expiration.
There is a $200 fee for a Minnesota medical marijuana card due at enrollment. The fee is reduced to $50 if the patient is a recipient of Social Security disability, Supplemental Security Insurance payments, or is enrolled in MinnesotaCare or medical assistance.
Patients must be at least 18 years of age to get a medical marijuana card in Minnesota.
Patients who require help in purchasing and administering their medicine can assign caregivers. A patient may have both registered designated caregivers and registered parents, legal guardians, or spouses acting as caregivers.
Because of recent changes in law, patients are no longer required to get approval from their health care practitioner to add a caregiver.
Caregivers must undergo a background check.
