Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana
The Medical Marijuana Act was approved by the Pennsylvania General Assembly on April 17, 2016. This made the use, possession, and sale of medical marijuana legal. Each customer must be a resident of Pennsylvania in order to purchase medical marijuana from dispensaries. To become certified to prescribe medical cannabis, a doctor must be PDH-approved and must confirm each patients' qualifying condition(s).

How to Renew Your Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Card
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 getting placed on the state's registry.
To buy marijuana at a dispensary in Pennsylvania, your certification must be updated every 12 months. A doctor's reevaluation is necessary to make sure medicinal marijuana is still appropriate and safe in each specific circumstance.
An email will be sent to you 60 days before your certificate expires reminding you to renew it. Then, you can make an online appointment with any of the licensed medical marijuana doctors at the Sanctuary. It will be similar to your original MMJ card consultation.
Thirty days prior to the payment deadline for your renewal, the Department of Health will also send you an email reminder. After that, you can log into your account to confirm that a legitimate payment method is 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 symptoms as well as how you feel during and after using medical marijuana. Based on your experiences, you can ask about things like dosages and side effects. Your certification will be sent to the registry by the doctor. It will instantly connect to your account.
Make sure the address that is listed for you online is correct. In the event that your doctor's certificate is current and your payment is accepted, the state will automatically mail you a replacement card.
Frequently Asked Questions
Only Pennsylvania residents who’re at least 18 years old and have a qualifying condition can obtain a PA medical cannabis card. Minors must appoint a designated caregiver as part of their applications to the state. A criminal record won’t prohibit applicants from obtaining an MMJ card, but it may prevent certain applicants from becoming caregivers.
New and renewal cards are $50 each, to be paid to the state. You may qualify for a free card if you participate in Medicaid, PACE or PACENET, CHIP, SNAP, or WIC. Your doctor will charge a separate fee for the medical marijuana consultation.
The primary rules are that you can only possess marijuana purchased from licensed dispensaries in approved forms. Also, you can only consume medical marijuana in your home or another private place. Finally, employers can permit cardholders to use medical marijuana on-site but are not required to.
Cardholders are bound by the state's other marijuana laws, including intoxicated driving, public consumption, and possession of marijuana obtained outside the limits of their cardholder rights.
Patient status does not exempt you from federal cannabis laws either. It remains illegal to transport cannabis across state lines.
Pennsylvania dispensaries are cash-only businesses. Banking regulations and the federal prohibition on cannabis limit dispensaries' ability to accept credit and debit cards. It's always best to call ahead to confirm the policies at the dispensary you plan to visit. Many locations have on-site ATMs.
If you get a PA medical marijuana card, you won’t be able to legally purchase or possess a firearm, you’ll be subject to marijuana-related DUI laws, you’ll have to pay a $50 fee to the state to renew your MMJ card each year, and your employer and/or landlord may have the right to legally forbid you from consuming cannabis products on their premises.
The pharmacist at your local dispensary sets your 90-day supply of cannabis. They determine the amount based on your symptoms and consumption method. As part of your initial dispensary visit, you will meet with a pharmacist to discuss your medical condition, how your symptoms affect your well-being, and your goals for your medical marijuana treatment.
Being honest and forthcoming about how your conditions impact your quality of life and ability to function will help the pharmacist make the appropriate recommendation.
