Do You Qualify for Medical Marijuana in Washington D.C.?

Different states have their respective lists of qualifying medical conditions that allow a medical marijuana doctor to certify you for a medical marijuana card.

Here are some of the qualifying conditions for patients in Washington, D.C.:

  •     Cancer
  •     Epilepsy
  •     Traumatic brain injury
  •     Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)
  •     Pain unrelieved by regular medical treatments
  •     Glaucoma, Hepatitis C, and Crohn’s disease unrelieved by regular medical treatments
  •     Multiple sclerosis
  •     Posttraumatic stress disorder
  •     Chronic renal failure necessitating hemodialysis

Getting Your Medical Cannabis Card

To become certified for a medical cannabis card, you will need to register with the D.C. Department of Health with the following details:

  •     A written medical authorization from your medical marijuana doctor
  •     A completed application form
  •     Proof of Washington D.C. residency
  •     Registration fee
  •     A passport photo

It may take a few weeks before your physical card arrives from the state health department. Meanwhile, you will get a temporary medical marijuana card. This allows you to buy up to two ounces of medical marijuana from a licensed dispensary.

Consult a Reputable Medical Cannabis Doctor

Medical cannabis doctors are your gateway to using medical marijuana. You should walk away from an appointment knowing exactly what to buy at a dispensary. While your cannabis doctor cannot write you a specific prescription, they should steer you in the right direction to get what you need.
