Believe it or not, it’s been almost a year since we started issuing the first medical marijuana cards for qualifying patients and designated caregivers.  This week marks the beginning of the first renewal period for the folks that applied for cards at the start of the program.  Our medical marijuana webpage has instructions and the link to renew cards. There’s also a fact sheet to tell folks what they need to know about renewing cards (and what happens if they don’t renew). 

Some key points to remember: 

  • Qualifying patients must submit a new current photograph, patient attestation form and physician certification form. 
  • The physician certification form must be dated within 90 calendar days of the application submittal.
  • The application fees for renewal are identical to the application fees for a new application.
  • Folks can begin the renewal process 90 days prior to the cards expiration date. 

Folks need to make sure they use the renewal application and not the new application when you are renew your card.   The renewal page will be updated on Thursday – you’ll be able to start renewing late that day or in the evening.
