Arizona Medical Marijuana Card

State Residency

Only residents of the state of Arizona are currently eligible to get a medical marijuana card in Arizona. Residency can be proven with a state issued Drivers License, ID Card or a Passport.
Please note: although you are able to obtain your card with a Passport, the dispensary is NOT allowed to accept it as a form of identification. You must present a valid and current Arizona state-issued ID.

Qualifying Conditions

According to Arizona statue 36-2801, medical marijuana can be recommended for patients for any of the following state-approved qualifying medical conditions:

Physician Recommendation

Any licensed Arizona physician legally can certify patients for a medical marijuana card. However, most physicians have not received any training on the benefits of medical marijuana and are hesitant to recommend marijuana for their patients.
As a result, most patients utilize licensed medical marijuana certification clinics.

Documentation

Current medical records (within the past 12 months) documenting a qualifying condition are required. These can be obtained free of charge from a patient’s physician, even if the physician is unwilling to write the recommendation. If a patient is unable to comply with this requirement, certain licensed medical marijuana clinics are able to provide these records with a consultation, others may be able to recommend another consulting physician.
In order to avoid a long wait, calling in advance to schedule an appointment with a licensed medical marijuana clinic is highly recommended. Any remaining questions can be answered during scheduling or by visiting the clinic’s website.
Upon approval, the Arizona Department of Health Services will issue a medical marijuana card within 7 to 10 days.
Medical marijuana cards are valid for one year from the date of issuance. AZDHS will send a notification 90 days before the card expires and again 30 days before expiration.

Fees

In Arizona, the annual fee for a new or renewal medical marijuana card is $150. (Current as of April 2014)
Certification clinics will also charge a fee for their service. These fees vary greatly depending on the type of card (new or renewal) as well as from clinic to clinic.
