Become a Medical Cannabis Patient

If you are at least 18 years old and you have an accessible email address, you can submit an application on the MMCC’s registry.

Step 1: Submit an online patient application: http://mmcc.maryland.gov

You will need to upload the following documents and to complete the online application:

  • An electronic copy of a valid US federal or state government issued photo ID and proof of Maryland address.
  • An electronic copy of a recent color photograph on a white background.
  • $50 Application fee

The MMCC will review your application and upon approval, you will be registered and issued a MMCC ID Number. Your registration is valid for three years.

Step 2: Receive your patient ID Number via email. This is usually received within 2-4 weeks of submitting your application.

Step 3: Schedule an appointment with a registered MMCC provider to get your medical cannabis certification. They will need your patient ID number to complete the process. Once certified, you can print out a temporary ID card from your MMCC account to use until your ID card comes in the mail.

Step 4: Visit Greenlight Therapeutics, your licensed dispensary, to obtain your medical cannabis. If you are using a paper certification, you will also need to bring a valid photo ID such as your driver’s license or passport.

If you’re not yet 18, you will need a caregiver associated with your account. Parents or legal  guardians who are 21 or older are the only ones eligible to act as a caregiver. Caregivers are required to register with the MMCC before registering with a minor patient.
