How to Get a Medical Marijuana Card in Newtown, PA

Step one is to get appointment with our medical marijuana doctor

Register for the Medical Marijuana Program at medicalmarijuana.pa.gov

Your driver's license ID number must be used to register with the state. When you make an appointment, the doctor will upload your ID number from the system, updating your records to reflect that you have been approved for medical marijuana therapy. You will need to enter back into your account after you receive your certification, so it's crucial that you keep your log-in details somewhere safe and accessible.

Step two is meet with SWI medical doctor

Meet with a Certified Doctor from the Sanctuary

Next, you will need to receive certification for a medical marijuana card from a doctor who has been certified with the PA Department of Health. For your convenience, you can schedule a telehealth or in-person appointment with one of The Sanctuary’s medical marijuana doctors. Your meeting will be brief, in which you will spend 10 to 15 minutes discussing your health concerns and any questions you might have regarding the use of medical marijuana. If your doctor decides that you qualify, they will give your certification that same day.

Step three to receive you medical marijuana card and buy your required product

Complete Registration on PA DOH Website

Once your physician has certified you, you must log into the account you originally used to register in order to pay the charge to the Pennsylvania Department of Health. The registration charge is $50, but there is a possibility that you could be eligible for a reduced registration fee if you receive help from a government program. Remember that moving forward, you will be required to pay an annual registration fee. The DOH will mail your medical marijuana card to the address on your driver's license that you provided when you first registered once that fee has been paid.

How Does the Renewal Process Work?

girl blue

It's easy to renew your medical marijuana card in Pennsylvania. All that is needed is an updated certificate and the renewal fee. You can continue to be a patient for as long as you like after being added to the state's registry.

To buy marijuana from a dispensary in Pennsylvania, your certification must be updated every 12 months. This mandatory annual renewal ensures patient safety by requiring every individual to visit their doctor and confirm medical cannabis treatment is still appropriate for them.

An email will be sent to you 60 days before your certificate expires reminding you to renew it. You may make an online / in-person renewal appointment with any of the licensed medical marijuana doctors at the Sanctuary. It will be similar to your original MMJ card consultation.

Thirty days before the payment deadline for your renewal, the Department of Health will also send you an email reminder. After that, you may go into your account to confirm that a legitimate payment method is still stored there. Your card won't expire if you pay the $50 renewal charge within 30 days of receiving this message.

Your doctor will inquire about your signs and symptoms as well as how you feel during and/or after using medicinal marijuana. Based on your experience, you might inquire about things like dosages and side effects. Your certification will be sent to the state's registry by the doctor. It will instantly connect to your account.

Make sure the address that is shown for you online is correct. As long as your doctor's certificate is current and your payment is accepted, the state will automatically mail you a replacement card.

How to Become a Medical Marijuana Caregiver

In Pennsylvania, persons who register with the state's medical marijuana program can buy medicinal marijuana on behalf of children, adults who are housebound, and those who need help because of a condition. Registered caregivers must be at least 21 years of age and possess a current driver's license or other Pennsylvania state-issued identification card.

  1. As a caregiver, you must register with the Department of Health. To create your account, you must include your name and address, the name of the patient you will be helping, their program ID number, and their name.
  2. Submit to a criminal background check via the state's provider. People who have been found guilty of a crime involving the sale or possession of narcotics or other prohibited substances during the last five years are unable to work as carers. After your appointment for fingerprinting, it will take up to six weeks for the state to process your background check.

  1. Once you pass the background check, the state will email you to let you know. The $50 registration fee can then be paid. Medical marijuana cards for caregivers have yearly expiration dates.
  2. Make an online or in-person appointment with one of the Sanctuary's licensed physicians.

As a caregiver, you are only permitted to visit dispensaries and buy marijuana if your account is linked to a valid patient. If you look after an adult, they can link you to their online account as their caregiver and grant you permission to buy cannabis goods on their behalf. In order to become patients, minors or persons with debilitating impairments must register with you as their caregiver.

Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Card Conditions

The Medical Marijuana Act (Act) was approved by the Pennsylvania General Assembly on April 17, 2016. This made the use, possession, and sale of medicinal marijuana lawful. Each customer must be a resident of Pennsylvania in order to receive a medical marijuana certification and buy medicinal cannabis from dispensaries. To become certified to prescribe medical cannabis, a doctor must be PDH-approved.

The Sanctuary team pledges to help patients from Yardley, Philadelphia, Doylestown, and other parts of Pennsylvania access medical marijuana treatment in the Newtown region.

The state of Pennsylvania charges a $50 fee for an official medical marijuana card. Residents who participate in certain governmental assistance programs such as PACE/PACENET, Medicaid, CHIP, SNAP, and WIC may be eligible for reduced or waived fees. Prospective patients should note that the state’s fee doesn’t include the cost of visiting a medical marijuana doctor before submitting your application.

A few of the myriad benefits of obtaining an official PA medical marijuana card include access to a broad array of cannabis products, legal protections, and the mitigation of the symptoms of your qualifying condition(s).

Currently, capsules and tinctures are the only edibles sold in Pennsylvania. State law prohibits manufacturers from placing cannabis in food and beverages. Patients can use legally purchased medical marijuana to make edibles for personal use.

No–employers are not allowed to discriminate against employees simply because they’re medical marijuana cardholders. However, they are legally allowed to discipline employees who use cannabis products and/or are found to be under their influence at the workplace.

You can usually schedule an appointment with one of the Sanctuary's doctors within the week. Your consultation will last approximately 15 minutes, after which the doctor will submit your certification to the Pennsylvania Department of Health. Once you register with the department online and pay the registration fee, your card will be mailed to you. It should arrive within one or two weeks.

No, to enter a Pennsylvania dispensary, you must show a valid medical marijuana card and a photo ID. After completing the registration process, you should receive your MMJ card in the mail within one to two weeks.

A Pennsylvania medical marijuana card allows you to buy up to 90 days/three months' worth of cannabis products (as prescribed by your doctor or pharmacist).

Pennsylvania does not have a reciprocity agreement with any other state, so your medical marijuana card is not valid outside of PA. If you plan to spend significant time in another state, research its marijuana laws. If that state issues temporary medical marijuana licenses, you may be eligible for one.

No, Pennsylvania is one of 13 states in the U.S. where marijuana is only permitted for medical purposes. To legally buy and consume cannabis products in PA, you must first get a medical marijuana doctor's certification for a qualifying condition.

To keep your medical marijuana card active, you have to renew it every 12 months. To do so, schedule a recertification appointment with a medical marijuana doctor at the Sanctuary within 60 days of your card's expiration. These visits are quick, simple, and can be done online. You will receive a new MMJ card in the mail once your doctor has approved your recertification and you’ve paid the state’s $50 fee.
