Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Info for Children & Veterans

Pennsylvania medical marijuana for children

A true way to heal for patients of all ages.

Some people are surprised to learn that medical marijuana is an option for children. For kids with epilepsy, cancer, and other conditions, anecdotal evidence shows support for its benefits. 

At Verilife, we believe that no one should have to suffer when a medication that can help relieve their symptoms exists—least of all children. That’s why we advocate for access for everyone, including kids, and ensure that we bring the real information about its possibilities to help.

How to get a medical marijuana card for a qualifying child living in Pennsylvania

  • Patients under the age of 18 with a serious medical condition can get medical marijuana through a caregiver
  • A caregiver for a minor must be a parent, legal guardian or spouse and must be 21 years of age or older unless otherwise authorized by the department
  • Third-party caregivers must be designated by the patient’s parent or patient's legal guardian or spouse.
    • An authorization form can be downloaded from the caregiver’s profile and uploaded once completed
  • Have an approved physician certify that the child suffers from one of the serious medical conditions that qualify for medical marijuana use under Pennsylvania's Medical Marijuana Program

Info for Pennsylvania veterans 

The challenges of life after military service can be difficult to navigate, and we're here to help. From the potential to alleviate the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) to provide an alternative to opioids for chronic pain, medical marijuana holds numerous possibilities to help the many men and women who have served this country.

Veterans can obtain medical marijuana the same way as other patients. Veterans need to confirm through the office of Veteran Affairs that they are permitted to use medical marijuana as part of their certified provider recommendation without consequence to their current position or health care system.
