Maryland Medical Marijuana FAQ

With medical marijuana now available in Maryland, it has raised quite a few questions regarding the Maryland laws and requirements. To obtain a Maryland medical card, you must first be diagnosed with a qualified condition. This includes patients suffering from a chronic or debilitating illness such as anorexia, cachexia, chronic pain, nausea, or seizures. The team at Mary and Main has provided a Maryland medical marijuana FAQ to answer questions regarding the topic.

How do I register for medical marijuana?

Before receiving a written certificate, patients must first register for a Maryland medical card through the Maryland Medical Cannabis commission website. You will need to submit a government issued photo identification along with proof of address. This process is quick and easy, and can be done through your laptop or smart-phone. After being approved, you will then obtain a written certification from a licensed medical marijuana provider.

Can any doctor prescribe medical marijuana?

It is illegal in the state of Maryland for any doctor to prescribe marijuana to their patients. Only licensed physicians can recommend medical marijuana to those in need by offering a written certification.

What do I do with my written certificate?

After receiving a written certificate, it’s time to get your medicine! Your doctor may recommend a dispensary near you, or you can research to find one you’re comfortable with. At Mary and Main, we welcome patients from all around.

How much does marijuana cost? Does insurance cover?

Unfortunately, insurance is not yet known to cover patients treating with medical marijuana. The cost of medicine will depend on the dispensary, as some offer discounts and other specials throughout the week. You can find a menu and pricing for Mary and Main through Sticky Guide.
