  • After entering your profile information, you will be prompted to create a username and password. Keep in mind that these will be case-sensitive, so enter them exactly as you did when you created them. You will also require a valid email address. You did it correctly if you see a screen with your patient information, including your patient ID. You can also expect a confirmation email with information about your next step: physician certification.

** Make sure you write down your marijuana ID number.**

Your PA MMJ card would last for one year.

Because of the recent legalization of medical marijuana, Pennsylvania has yet to pass legislation authorizing the cultivation of marijuana plants. There has also been no talk of a bill being introduced that would allow medical marijuana patients to grow their own marijuana.

At this time, insurance companies do not cover medical marijuana.Β 

Buying Marijuana at Retail Location

If you live in Pennsylvania, the only way to legally smoke marijuana is to obtain an approved medicalΒ marijuana card and visit a valid medical marijuana dispensary.

Marijuana Delivery Service

Marijuana delivery is illegal in Pennsylvania under normal circumstances, but the rules have been slightly altered due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Governor Wolf invoked his emergency powers in the form of a Proclamation of Emergency Disaster, allowing dispensaries to deliver medical marijuana to an unlimited number of patients.

Pennsylvania Dispensary Hours

There have been no laws enacted in Pennsylvania that affect the operating hours of medical dispensaries, so most dispensaries operate during normal business hours, typically opening at 8:00 a.m. and closing at 10:00 p.m.

Purchase Restrictions

In Pennsylvania, purchasing limits are determined by the individual and their doctor’s recommendation. As a result, each patient is given a 30-day supply and is not allowed to purchase more than their doctor’s prescriptions within a month.

As of now, the application for medical marijuana in Pennsylvania takes place online (see outlined steps above).

Pennsylvania 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.
