How to Get a Mississippi Medical Marijuana Card

Mississippi’s medical marijuana program has not been well defined, but state Senate Bill 2610 lays out the framework for allowing patients to get access. Qualified patients will be able to possess and use a CBD extract, defined as an extract, oil or resin with a 20:1 ratio of CBD to THC and no less than 50 mg of CBD per mL, and no more than 2.5 mg of THC per mL.

Who is eligible?

Patients must be residents of Mississippi and 18 years of age or older, or have a parent, guardian or custodian responsible for their medical care. The patient has to be diagnosed with a debilitating epileptic condition by an approved physician.

How much does it cost?

There is no application fee.

How do I apply?

Mississippi has no official method of applying for medical marijuana use. The Senate Bill only specifies that the CBD solution must be obtained from the University of Mississippi Medical Center Pharmacy, or another state-approved pharmacy or laboratory that meets the same regulations. The patient or guardian must also sign a hold-harmless agreement freeing the state and any division, agency, institution or employee from liability. The state also requires that the patient obtain a physician’s order recommending the use of CBD in the treatment of a debilitating epileptic condition.
