If you have a condition recognized by the MMCC as being treatable with marijuana and you would like to use marijuana to treat your condition, then follow these 5 simple steps:
1.) Call 410-618-6315 to schedule your appointment
Due to the overwhelming interest in medical marijuana our lines frequently go to voice mail. Do not worry, we check our messages throughout the day and will return your call as soon as we can.
2.) Bring all your medical records to your appointment.
Medical documentation is required by the State of Maryland prior to issuing a written certification for the use of medical marijuana. Medical documentation may include the last 12 months of progress notes from your primary care physician or specialist. Alternately, we can also accept a letter on physician letterhead, signed by your physician stating your diagnosis, how long they have been treating you, and if your most recent visit was within the past year.
In order for our certifying physicians to issue you a written certification for the use of medical marijuana, you must have a qualifying condition. Your medical records must clearly document that you have the condition that you are seeking help with by the use of medical marijuana. Our certifying physicians will review your records prior to your visit to ensure that your condition meets the MMCC's requirements for a written certification to use medical marijuana.
3.) Visit mmcc.maryland.gov and register as a patient prior to your visit
A written certification for the use of medical marijuana can not be issued to you unless you have registered with the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission.
4.) CONFIRM THAT OUR OFFICE HAS RECEIVED YOUR MEDICAL RECORDS.
5.) Arrive for your appointment 15 minutes early to complete some paper work and have a valid photo ID-drivers license, passport, state ID.
