How to Obtain a Medical Marijuana Card with 3 Things

For many patients, getting a medical marijuana card seems like a last resort after one treatment after another fails to relieve you of pain or other painful conditions. A medical marijuana card would allow you to obtain medical cannabis by legal means.

However, obtaining a medical marijuana card or other Michigan Medical Marijuana Certification can either seem convoluted, socially unacceptable, or just too difficult to achieve. Doctors do not make it easy to qualify their patients for medical marijuana cards like they would for regular prescription drugs. The right steps have to be taken and some credentials must be met.

But thankfully, with the right information and help, you can be on track to own a medical marijuana card with no hurdles to jump through. Once you know what the process is like, it is not as hard as it may seem at first.

Here are three things you need in order to obtain a medical marijuana card.

A Proof of Residence

This is likely the easiest step, so long as you officially own a home or car. You can easily obtain this credential with a valid driver’s license. There are 29 states that medical marijuana is legal in, including Michigan. Because Michigan Medical Marijuana Certification is acceptable, there are not any big obstacles for you to get past. If you live in a state where medical marijuana is not yet legal, you will have to wait until it does become legal before you can move forward with obtaining a medical marijuana card.

An Eligible Condition

If you live in Michigan, Florida, or any other state where medical marijuana is 100 percent legal, your next step would be to have a condition that would make the drug absolutely necessary for you to use. It isn’t enough to simply obtain medical marijuana because you can. This means that you will need a condition that medical marijuana could treat for you to obtain it. The list of eligible conditions varies by state.

The qualifying conditions for Michigan are as follows:

  • Cancer
  • Glaucoma
  • HIV/AIDS
  • Hepatitis C
  • Lou Gehrig’s disease (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS)
  • Crohn’s disease Alzheimer’s disease Nail-patella syndrome
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Cachexia (wasting disease)
  • Severe and chronic pain
  • Severe nausea Seizures, including those containing epilepsy
  • Severe muscle spasms, including those containing multiple sclerosis

If you have one of these conditions or diseases, you should be eligible for a medical marijuana card, but you still need to get your doctor to sign off on your eligibility. You also may be eligible for a medical marijuana card if your condition is not listed above. This condition must be giving you chronic pains that will be verified with a diagnosis. This will also make you eligible for a medical marijuana card.

Documentation From A Doctor

The last and most necessary step to obtaining a card it to get your doctor to sign your forms. If your doctor opposes medical marijuana as a form of treatment, and there are some that do, you will have to look for a new doctor that will sign on the dotted line. The reasons that a certain doctor would not entitle patients to a medical marijuana card range from medical marijuana not being their expertise to their negative stance on marijuana in general.

Thankfully, there are medical marijuana clinics as well as medical marijuana doctors that are specialized to help patients become eligible for medical marijuana. If you have a proof of residence and a documented chronic condition, you will be able to get your card as soon as you see the right doctor.
