Navigating the Process: How to Get Your Medical Marijuana Card in East Lansing

If you’re considering the benefits of medicinal cannabis, knowing how to get your medical card in East Lansing can feel daunting. At Pleasantrees – East Lansing, we are here to simplify this process for you.

Firstly, understand that Michigan law requires patients seeking a medical marijuana card to have a qualifying condition. These conditions range from cancer and HIV/AIDS to epilepsy and arthritis. A full list of qualifying conditions can be found on the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services website.

Secondly, schedule an appointment with a Michigan-licensed physician or osteopathic physician for an assessment. This physician must affirm in writing that your symptoms could benefit from using medical marijuana.

On obtaining these documents, apply online via the Michigan Marijuana Regulatory Agency (MRA) website. Remember to include your physician’s statement, a copy of your valid photo ID, and pay the $40 application fee. Approval typically takes approximately 15 days.
