What are the 4 steps needed to obtain your marijuana card in Connecticut?

Step 1 – Schedule an appointment with an approved Connecticut medical marijuana physician.

Step 2 – Obtain your certification from your  Connecticut medical marijuana doctor.

Following your evaluation, the physician must diagnose you with at least one qualifying condition in order to write you a physician’s recommendation. It is impossible to receive your card without this.

Step 3 – Apply for your MMJ Card through the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection

Make a copy of your physician’s recommendation and send it to the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection. This Department is in charge of everything related to medical cannabis. The Department will evaluate your case once they receive your certification, along with your photo ID and payment of fees.

As a medical cardholder, you may purchase and possess up to 2.5 ounces of medical marijuana in a 30-day period.

Yes. With Connecticut being an at-will state and there not currently being any legislation in place that protects medical marijuana patients in the workplace, medical cardholders can still be administered drug screenings and receive disciplinary action regarding the results of drug screenings. For this reason, we recommend making sure you are fully aware of your employer’s policy regarding drug screenings and medical marijuana before moving forward with the process.

Connecticut does not have any restrictions regarding patients on probation or parole, however, you must get permission from your probation or parole officer first before pursuing a medical marijuana card.

As a legal medical marijuana patient, you are protected. Patients do not have to disclose that they possess medical marijuana and do not have to consent to a search. However, if a search is conducted and medical marijuana is found, the patient should immediately present their patient ID card or direct law enforcement to the state database to show that they are a legal patient.

No. You must be certified in Connecticut by a registered medical marijuana doctor to legally access and purchase from dispensaries in the state.

The laws for using out-of-state medical cards vary from state to state, so the best way to find out is by contacting a dispensary in the state you’re interested in visiting to find out for sure.

Guide for Guardians to Register a Minor Patient

STEP 1: Schedule Appointments with Two Physicians

  • Get two doctors to agree that marijuana is the best option for the minor patient.

    • The patient’s primary care provider must be one physician.

    • The other must be board certified in the qualifying condition’s field of medicine.

  • One of the two doctors must enter the medical marijuana registration system and certify that the patient has at least one qualifying condition.

  • The second doctor will write a letter confirming that marijuana is the best option.

STEP 2: Complete the Patient Registration Process

Following your scheduled appointments, the minor patient should enter their information into DCP’s medical marijuana registration system.  View/print the “Quick Reference Card.”

The parent or guardian must complete the registration by:

  • Using the following link to set up a free account in the State’s Business Network system. 

  • Log in with the email and password you used to register for the Business Network.

  • Select “I am a Patient,” and then provide the certifying physician with the minor patient’s date of birth and email address.

  • Once logged in, you will see a pre-filled form with the physician’s patient information. If the information is incorrect, you must correct it as soon as possible.

  • After confirmation, choose a dispensary from which to purchase medical marijuana.

  • Following that, you must provide information about yourself as the patient’s Caregiver.

  • Finally, choose a method of payment. A minor patient must pay a fee of $100.

STEP 3: Complete the Caregiver Registration Process

  • You will see a pre-filled screen with the physician’s patient information and your own caregiver information.

  • You will then be asked a series of questions to confirm your understanding of being a caregiver and your responsibilities.

  • Following that, you must upload proof of identity and residency, a photograph of yourself, and a letter from the second physician.

  • Finally, you’ll need to choose a payment method. A Caregiver costs $25 per hour.

STEP 4: DCP Reviews the Application

  • You will be notified via email if your registration has been approved or if any information is missing.

  • The Caregiver will receive a medical marijuana registration card in the mail from DCP.

  • DCP will not issue ID cards to minor patients. Proof that the minor patient is registered can be provided by the minor’s email confirmation and your caregiver card.

To qualify for a Connecticut medical marijuana card, you must:

  • Be at least 18 years old

  • Be an in-state resident

  • Have at least one of the state’s qualifying medical conditions

If you’re a minor, you are still eligible for a Connecticut medical marijuana card; you just have to have an Approved Caregiver handle all of the cannabis-related decisions. The list of qualifying medical conditions is less extensive for minors, though.

All marijuana products and accessories are legal under the state of Connecticut. Connecticut has them all:

  • Actual flower

  • Edibles

  • Creams

  • Oils

  • Ointments

  • Cartridges

  • Concentrates

  • Vapes

Connecticut Medical Marijuana Cards are valid for one year from the date of certification. This is an important distinction because the clock begins to tick at that point. This is true even if you do not use the card for several weeks.

Here is Connecticut’s widespread list of qualifying medical conditions. They are:

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

  • Cachexia

  • Muscular Dystrophy

  • Osteogenesis Imperfecta

  • Severe Epilepsy

  • Terminal Illness Requiring End-of-Life Care

Even with a valid MMJ card, you cannot grow or otherwise cultivate weed at home

You pay a $100 registration fee once you have logged all of the required documentation for the application. You may pay with a credit card, a check, or a money order. Make all money orders/checks payable to “Treasurer, State of Connecticut.” Caregivers must pay a registration fee of $25. The average consultation fee ranges between $175 and $200.

There are about 20 medical dispensaries across the state of Connecticut. Only valid medical patients are allowed to buy marijuana from these locations; recreational marijuana is still illegal. Finding a dispensary that is right for you is just a click away!

Buying Marijuana at Retail Location

If you do not bring a valid ID and a medical card, the dispensary will not let you in. Patients and caregivers must be at least 18 years old to enter a medical dispensary.

Marijuana Delivery Services

Section 12 of Connecticut’s marijuana act states that no one is permitted to “sell, deliver, transport, or distribute marijuana to a person who is not a licensed dispensary.”

Connecticut Dispensary Hours

Almost every Connecticut medical dispensary has chosen to close at 8:00 p.m. Opening hours, on the other hand, vary from dispensary to dispensary but typically range between 7:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m.

Purchase Restrictions

A patient in Connecticut is not permitted to purchase more than 2.5 ounces per month. That would be a clear violation of the possession restrictions. You can buy 2.5 ounces of cannabis per month if your doctor does not recommend a specific amount.

To get registered with CT’s MMJ program is by meeting with an approved physician. Then, make an appointment. There are many approved doctors in Connecticut, so find the closest and best for your budget.
