Getting your medical marijuana evaluation is now easier than ever, as My Marijuana Card is now offering telemedicine. This means that, despite the quarantine restrictions imposed by Covid-19 , you can still get your medical marijuana evaluation from the comfort of your very own home.
The Michigan Cannabis Industry Association (MCIA) petitions the state to classify medical marijuana as an “essential item” and authorize physicians to certify medical patients via telemed platforms throughout the COVID-19 crisis.
Here’s a snip bit, of what the MCIA wrote in a letter to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer:
"March 22, 2020, Ohio Department of Health Director, Dr. Amy Acton, issued an official Stay at Home order. This order permits individuals to leave their residence to work for or obtain services through a healthcare and public health operation."
What does the order mean for you?
Ohio Dispensaries have been deemed medically essential & will not be closed during the COVID-19 social distancing period.
The order came a few days after the Ohio Medical Board approved the use of Telemedicine for patients and caregivers. Check out our piece to learn more about how you can obtain your Ohio medical marijuana card today from the comfort of your couch!

To whom it may concern,
At My Marijuana Card, it is our hope that none of our patients or staff contract the Coronavirus (COVID-19). In order to ensure the health and well being of our patients and staff, all of our physical locations throughout Michigan and Ohio will be temporarily closed. However, within the next few weeks we will be offering telemedicine appointments.
