How to Get a Maine Medical Marijuana Card

The Division of Public Health Systems offers the Maine Medical Use of Marijuana Program. Unlike other states, Maine’s program does not require a patient to submit an application. The patient’s physician can submit the information to an online system and issue an immediate patient card. However patients under the age of 18 are required to have a caregiver submit an application on their behalf.

Who can qualify?

To be eligible for a medical marijuana card in Maine you must be a resident of Maine or qualify as a Visiting Patient and hold a medical marijuana card from another jurisdiction.
