Become a Medical Cannabis Patient in Massachusetts
Medical marijuana is regulated much differently than recreational marijuana in Massachusetts, and for good reason—it’s used by patients as a treatment for their qualifying medical conditions. The process to become a medical cannabis card holder requires a few steps before getting approved by the state.
Qualifications for Medical Marijuana in Massachusetts
Applicants for a medical marijuana card in Massachusetts must have a certification from a health care provider that states you have a qualifying medical condition. Healthcare providers include doctors, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners who are registered with the Massachusetts Medical Use of Marijuana Program. This medical practitioner will need to provide a certification that you suffer from one of the qualifying conditions.
