Important Information about Eligibility
Who can apply for a Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission (MMCC) Card?
Maryland residents are eligible to register if their provider has approved medical cannabis as a treatment option for certain qualifying conditions. Non-Maryland residents who are living in Maryland because they are receiving medical treatment here are also eligible. Non-residents will need to provide contact information for the Maryland medical facility where they receive treatment. Qualifying medical conditions include cachexia, anorexia, wasting syndrome, chronic or severe pain, severe nausea, seizures, severe or persistent muscle spasms, glaucoma, and post-traumatic stress disorder. PLEASE NOTE THAT PATIENTS IN HOSPICE WILL BE GIVEN PRIORITY IN THE MMCC APPLICATION PROCESS.
What if I am a Caregiver for a Minor Seeking Access to Medical Cannabis?
It is possible for minors to benefit from medical cannabis, however, they are required to have at least one caregiver assigned to their account. Only parents or legal guardians are eligible to serve as caregivers. Caregivers must first register wth the MMCC prior to registering a minor. Registering a minor patient requires additional forms, one of which must be notarized, so please review carefully the process by which you can help a young person in your care find relief.
