How to Get a Guam Medical Marijuana Card

Although the Guam Compassionate Cannabis Use Act was passed in 2014, the medical marijuana program has not yet been implemented. Cultivators are not being issued medical marijuana licenses and there is no certified laboratory for testing marijuana products.

The Department of Public Health and Social Services offers the Medical Marijuana Registry program.
