Do you need a caregiver?

“Medical Cannabis Program patients can designate up to 3 caregiver(s) to apply for the caregiver card. The caregiver card will allow the person to legally purchase and transport the medicine to the patient. Caregivers need the same required documents the patient needs excluding the doctor certification. The fee for a caregiver is $25 a year. Opioid patients can NOT have a caregiver.”

What about minors?

Minor qualifying patients need a physician certification AND a reviewing physician certification. A designated caregiver must apply, providing all the same documents listed for a patient.

Medical Cannabis card holders will NOT have to give up their FOID card or Concealed Carry Card.
