Patient ID cards

Important information for patients and caregivers about California’s Medical Marijuana ID Card Program

For over a decade, the Compassionate Use Act (Prop. 215) has allowed patients in California to legally use medical marijuana pursuant to their doctors recommendations. Unfortunately, many patients are still subjected to unnecessary legal problems at the hands of state and local law enforcement who are skeptical of their qualified medical status.

State law requires counties to administer a patient ID card program to protect patients from false arrest, detainment or seizure of property.

This program is voluntary for qualified patients and caregivers but many choose to become card holders because it greatly reduces their risk of unnecessary legal hassles for a qualified person who stays within the statewide or local safe harbor guidelines. Implementation of the program even benefits those who choose not to obtain a card because it forces the county to acknowledge our state’s medical marijuana laws.

All counties are now complying with the law by offering the ID cards. Fees vary from location to location.

County contact information for the medical marijuana ID card program.

    Colusa County is the last holdout in the state, but if you live there the lack of an MMP card is probably the least of your problems.

  5. Celeste says:

    Is this patient id card the same as the card you can get when you get your doctors referral document or is this different?
