How to Renew Your CT Medical Marijuana Card?
The renewal process is similar to the initial application. The first step is to attend a medical marijuana evaluation, where your doctor will confirm that you have a qualifying condition such as epilepsy, Crohn’s disease, or objective neurological indication of intractable spasticity. If you have a primary caregiver and wish to appoint someone else, you can designate the new caregiver using your online account. They will then need to apply for a caregiver card.
Your doctor will complete three certifications through the online portal, confirm the date of the recertification examination, and verify they have a patient-physician relationship with you.
The doctor will update your demographic information in the system, so advise them of address or name changes since your last examination.
The state requires a copy of a photo ID and proof that you reside in Connecticut. You also need to complete the six certifications at the end of the online form.
Acceptable forms of ID include a clear and valid:
- Connecticut or out-of-state driver’s license
- Connecticut issued ID
- Connecticut pistol or firearm permit.
- US Passport or passport card
- Permanent resident card
- Certificate of naturalization or citizenship
You must submit one of the state-accepted documents to prove your Connecticut residency. It must be dated within 90 days of your application, be computer generated, show your name, and list the address of your residence.
You upload each document to your online account as part of your application. The Department of Consumer Protection, which issues medical marijuana cards, suggests you contact your dispensary if you need help uploading documents. Keep in mind that the state may request additional medical records before issuing a registration certificate and certifying you as a medical marijuana patient.
Submit Application Fee
Registration fees can be paid through the portal using a credit card. The state also accepts checks or money orders payable to the Treasurer, State of CT. Verify your application is complete and accurate before submitting the fee.
