California Marijuana Card

More Information:

California Medical Marijuana Card

The Medical Marijuana Program (MMP) was established to provide a voluntary medical marijuana identification cards and registry program for qualified patients and their caregivers.  The registry system allows law enforcement and the public to verify the validity of qualified patient or caregiver's card as authorization to possess, grow, transport and/or use Medical Marijuana in California. Upon obtaining a recommendation from their physician for use of medicinal marijuana, patients and their primary caregivers may apply for and be issued, a Medical Marijuana Identification Card. It is NOT mandatory for patients to obtain a Medical Marijuana Identification Card in order to receive full legal protections of the California Medical Marijuana law.

How to Obtain a Medical Marijuana Card in California

  1. Obtain a medical marijuana recommendation from your physician
  2. Fill out the Application/Renewal Form CDPH 9042
  3. Submit the Application form to your country health department (addresses listed below) along with the following:
  • A government-issued photo identification card
  • Proof of county residence, such as a rent/mortgage receipt, utility bill, or motor vehicle registration
  • Written documentation from your doctor recommending the use of medical marijuana
  • Application fee (varies by county - see below)

Medical Marijuana Identification Card Cost

The Medical Marijuana Program, within California Department of Public Health, is administered through each medical marijuana patient's county of residence and therefore fees will vary by county. The state cost of the Medical Marijuana Identification Card (MMIC) application fee is currently set at $66.00 per card for non Medi-Cal patients and $33.00 per card for Medi-Cal patients.  Each county then adds their administration fee to the state cost.  Contact your county program to find out what the total cost for a Medical Marijuana Identification Card is in your county.
