Caroline County Medical Marijuana
Are you a resident of Caroline County, Maryland or do you receive treatment in the county for a chronic medical condition? If you meet these qualifications and have an interest in becoming a medical marijuana patient, you may be able to qualify under Maryland state law.
Qualifying for Medical Marijuana in Caroline County
To determine if you would be a good fit for medical marijuana, you must first see if you have one of the conditions that is deemed legally treatable with cannabis under state law. These include conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder, anorexia, and glaucoma as well as those conditions causing debilitating pain, spasms, seizures, or nausea. In addition, those receiving palliative or hospice care may also qualify. If you have one of these or a similar condition, register with the Maryland Medical Marijuana Commission and then schedule an appointment with a licensed medical marijuana doctor in your area. The doctor will verify your condition by going through your health records and will ask other questions to determine if you would make a good medical marijuana patient. A written cannabis recommendation will then be issued and can be used to apply for a patient ID number with the Commission. Without this ID number, you will not be able to legally buy marijuana in the state.
