Registering for the Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Program


If you have a health condition that qualifies
for the Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Program, registering is a simple process. So much so, it can be broken down into three steps. We’ve outlined these steps below and included some helpful resources to assist you along the way.

Step 1: Register

Register with the Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Program (MMP) using the Department of Health website. There you will create a profile in the Medical Marijuana Registry.

Required Information

  • Legal Name
  • Date of Birth
  • Residential Address (matching your PA Drivers License or State ID)

What You’ll Need

  • Pennsylvania Drivers License or State ID

Step 2: Receive Certification

Consult with a designated Pennsylvania MMP doctor to certify you suffer from one of the conditions that qualify for medical marijuana. Your physician will then submit your certification directly into the Medical Marijuana Registry.

Step 3: Pay for Your Card

Once you have been certified by an approved physician, the next step is to return to the Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Registry to purchase your medical marijuana card. Once purchased, your card will arrive in the mail around 7-10 days after completing the online process and payment.

Current Cost

The current price for a Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana card is $50. Patients who participate in assistance programs including Medicaid, PACE/PACENET, CHIP, SNAP, and WIC may be eligible for fee reductions.

That’s it!

Once all the steps above are completed, you can purchase medical marijuana at any licensed Pennsylvania dispensary using your MMP card.
