The majority of doctors in the state are not comfortable with certifying patients for the Washington D.C. medical marijuana program because marijuana remains illegal on a federal level. In addition, a doctor must be registered with the state in order to certify patients for the program.
For these reasons it can sometimes be difficult for patients to find a doctor who will certify them. We currently offer online Telemedicine visits that allow you to be seen from the comfort and security of home, making the search for a doctor easy for you. All of our doctors are registered with the state and can legally certify you for the program. If you think that you may have a chronic medical condition that could benefit from medical marijuana, then you will most likley qualify. Our doctor can evaluate you, review any medical documentation you are able to provide, and certify you for the program. Once certified, you will be able to apply with the state for your card so that you can begin purchasing at dispensaries throughout the state.
The next step after being certified by a doctor is to register and apply online with the Washington D.C. Department of Health. In order to register, patients will need to have: – a medical cannabis recommendation issued by a doctor within the last 90 days – Two (2) recent face photos – A government-issued photo ID – Two (2) proofs of Washington D.C. residency – The $100 application fee. If you're having trouble submitting your application to the state or any part of the registration process, we recommend contacting the state directly for support at 202-442-4423.
