How do I qualify for an Arizona medical marijuana card?

To qualify for a medical marijuana card in AZ, you must meet the following requirements:

  • You must be a resident of Arizona. 
  • You must have a valid form of identification if you are an adult aged 18 and over. For example, an Arizona driver’s license or Arizona ID card. Minors (patients below 18 years old) must have a caregiver apply on their behalf.
  • A licensed Arizona marijuana doctor must issue you with an MMJ certification. The certification proves that you suffer from one of the qualifying conditions for a medical card in Arizona.

What are the qualifying conditions for a medical marijuana card in Arizona?

What's the process of getting an MMJ certification in Arizona?

  1. Fill out our sign-up form and create your account.
  2. Book your appointment with one of our Arizona medical marijuana doctors.
  3. Attend your in-person consultation.
  4. Get your certification after the doctor’s approval.

I have several qualifying conditions. Does that guarantee that I'll get my AZ med card?

No. The law does not obligate marijuana doctors in AZ to approve patients for medical marijuana. Still, our MMJ doctors will most likely certify you for your med card if you suffer from any qualifying condition.

How is the consultation done? Can I have a video call with the doctor?

No. Arizona requires in-person visits for medical marijuana certifications. As a result, you will need to visit our MMJ doctor for your physical examination before they can certify you for medical marijuana.

What happens after I'm approved?

You have 90 days to register with the Arizona Medical Marijuana Registry after getting certified. So, you must create an account on the ADHS Individual Licensing Portal and submit your application. You will receive your electronic medical marijuana card within five (5) working days after you submit a complete application.

When will I get my med card in the mail?

The Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) no longer provides physical medical marijuana cards to patients. Instead, you will receive an electronic or digital medical marijuana card within five (5) days after you submit your application. Afterward, you can print your med card or use it on your mobile device.

How long is my med card valid for?

Your Arizona medical marijuana card will be valid for two (2) years from the date of issue. Does your AZ med card expire soon? Remember, you should renew your Arizona medical marijuana card at least 30 days before it expires.

I lost/destroyed my med card. How do I ask for a new one?

Since the state now issues digital med cards, you can always download your med card from your account on the ADHS Individual Licensing Portal.

Are there other fees I need to pay for?

Quick Med Cards offers the cheapest MMJ certifications in AZ. Our consultation and certification costs range from $49 to $149, depending on a patient’s profile and unique needs. Additionally, you must pay $150 for your medical card to the Arizona Medical Marijuana Registry. However, patients participating in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program only pay $75 for their med cards.
