Below are steps and requirements for patients (and their caregivers) to obtain medical marijuana in Pennsylvania.
1. Patient must be at least 18 years of age and not homebound. Patients under the age of 18 or home-bound must have a caregiver who is registered with the Department of Health.
2. Caregivers must be at least 21 years old, and designated by a patient or, if the patient is under 18 years of age, an individual that is a parent or legal guardian of the patient, or an individual designated by a parent or legal guardian, or an appropriate individual approved by the Department of Health if no patient or guardian is appropriate or available.
3. Patients must be a resident in the state of Pennsylvania with proof of residency. If you do not have a Pennsylvania I.D., an out of state I.D., passport, or other photo I.D. with proof of residency such as bank statement, utility bill, etc., is acceptable.
4. The patient must have one of 21 qualified serious medical conditions as certified by a health care professional. Qualifying Conditions (hyperlink previous text to list)
5. The patient must complete an in-person examination and review of health records by a physician who is registered with the PA Department of Health Medical Marijuana Program and has successfully completed a required 4-hour course approved by the Department of Health.
6. If the physician recommends that medical marijuana is appropriate for the patient, the physician will issue a patient certification. Additionally, the physician will register the patient online with the Pennsylvania Department of Health Medical Marijuana Program.
7. Then, the patient will complete an online application to obtain a medical marijuana ID card. Caregivers must also complete an online application if wishing to obtain their own medical marijuana ID card in order to obtain marijuana for the patient. Caregivers must also undergo a criminal history check.
8. Once the application has been completed and reviewed, the Pennsylvania Department of Health will send a medical marijuana ID card to the patient or caregiver. Individuals may renew the certification with a registered physician after one year.
9. Once received, bring the medical marijuana ID card to Solevo Wellness™ and obtain medical marijuana.
