If you have a qualifying health condition and you’re in Maine, you may be able to get a medical marijuana card. However, you will need to meet with a licensed physician to be sure. You must also have proof of residency, including a valid state photo ID, before you can receive your certification.
Qualifying patients can submit an application online or by mail. To apply, you must show that you are 18 or older, a resident of Maine, and have a qualifying health condition. Once you have completed your application, you can wait up to seven days before you receive an approval.
Medical cannabis users can visit Maine dispensaries or purchase their cannabis at clinical dispensaries in other states. However, they must present their MMJ card when purchasing products.
Qualifying conditions for a Maine medical card are not clearly defined. However, chronic pain, PTSD, and other chronic conditions can be deemed to qualify. Also, you will need to meet with a physician and provide all of your medical records.
A Maine medical marijuana card will last for one year. During that time, you’ll be able to possess up to two and a half ounces of usable marijuana. Additionally, you can grow up to six mature plants in your home.
Getting a Maine medical card is easy. It only takes a few days, and it costs just over $50. The physician will evaluate your medical records, determine whether or not you are a good candidate for medical marijuana, and write you a recommendation.
