Welcome to your first visit to Pleasantrees – East Lansing! As a new customer, we understand that you might have pertinent questions about our services. One query that commonly crops up amongst newbies to our center is, “How do I get my card?” Today, we aim to offer clarity on this and more topics. Please read on for a helpful guide.
Step 1: Qualifying for a Card
Before you begin your journey, it’s essential to discern whether you qualify for the card. In Michigan, specific conditions can qualify you for medical marijuana. These include conditions like cancer, glaucoma, HIV, Hepatitis C, and ALS, to name a few. Our website has a comprehensive list of all the qualifying conditions for your perusal. If you suffer from any of these, then congratulations, you’re eligible to get your card!
Step 2: Obtain Your Physician’s Approval
Once you’ve determined that you qualify for a card, the next step is to seek approval from your physician. They will need to verify your need for medicinal marijuana as a way to manage the symptoms of your condition. This verification process typically involves filling out a form that your physician will sign. Remember, your health comes first, so this step is paramount!
Step 3: Apply for the Card
With your physician’s agreement in hand, you’re just one step away from getting your card. You must now submit an application to the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs. This application would require the signed form from your physician, a filled-out patient paperwork, proof of Michigan residency, your ID card, and a small application fee. Once the Department approves of your application, it will send your card in the mail, and you’re good to go!
In summary, getting your card involves determining if you have a qualifying condition, obtaining your doctor’s approval, and sending an application to the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs.
