Maryland And Marijuana Pt. 2

Currently, only medical marijuana is legal in the state of Maryland. Residents can acquire cannabis in Maryland by completing several steps to ensure that the use is entirely within the law. This process includes receiving a medical marijuana card from a licensed physician.

There is no need to go to any type of special clinic to receive a medical marijuana card. The card can be issued by any licensed physician in good standing in Maryland, as long as they are registered with the Medical Cannabis Commission. You can check with your primary care physician to see if he or she is registered and whether or not they feel medical cannabis could benefit your current condition. Physicians are only allowed to give marijuana cards to those with qualifying conditions that have been outlined by the department of health services and/or department. An in-person visit is required in order to receive a medical marijuana card. However, the physician must have a bonafide relationship with the patient, meaning the physician has reviewed medical records, assessed the patient's history, holds records of the patient and provides follow-care to the patient on a semi-regular basis. Once these qualifications have been filled, the physician can provide the patient with a "written certification", similar to a prescription.

Patients can acquire no more than 120 grams (approximately four ounces) at a time unless their physician has determined the patient needs more. Cannabis oil is also included under the definition of medical cannabis in the state of Maryland, so long as the oil is produced by a Maryland-licensed processor.

All patients that have been approved to receive medical marijuana must receive their marijuana from a Maryland-licensed processor or distributor. Patients and caregivers are not allowed to cultivate their own marijuana for medical use.

As state laws are continuously changing, be sure to regularly check on the current laws and where they stand on legal and medical cannabis use.
