How to renew your Medical Marijuana card
Please note – Your NJMMP Patient Identification Card is valid for 2 years, however, your medical marijuana recommendation is only valid for 1 year. Therefore, after that time, you need to be re-evaluated by one of our licensed doctors.
However, you don’t have to worry about your recommendation expiring. We will be in touch to let you know when it’s time to see our doctor again for a re-evaluation.
Important – If you are a caregiver, your Registry ID is only valid for the same period as your patient’s medical MMJ card. When your patient’s card expires, they will need to get a new certification from their doctor. After your patient has successfully renewed their med card, you will need to renew your registry card as well. You need to make sure that you have a valid Registry ID card when buying from a dispensary.
How to Renew:
1. Receive email notice from NJMMP
When your two-year ID card is nearing its expiration date the NJMMP will send an email with information on how to re-register. You can also access these instructions anytime by logging into your profile.

NJ Medical Marijuana Med Card Guidelines
Patients validated for the state program who receive a medical weed card may purchase and use medical marijuana in New Jersey.
- You are allowed up to three (3) ounces of medical marijuana during a thirty (30) day period.
It’s important to know that medical cannabis patients may not operate any vehicle under the influence of marijuana. That is to say, driving under the influence of medical marijuana is illegal. This also applies to aircraft and marine vessels.
Patients are not allowed to use cannabis in public places. Smoking of medical marijuana falls under the Smoke-Free Air Act at N.J.S.A. 26:3D-57 and is subject to the provisions of the Smoke-Free Air Act.
This means that you’re not allowed to smoke in any indoor public place and work place. For example, in public beaches, recreational centers, school compounds, school buses, or on public transport. In fact, private vehicles are also considered ‘public places’ when in motion.

Frequently Asked Questions
When did New Jersey legalize medical marijuana?
Medical cannabis was signed into law by Gov. Jon S. Corzine in 2010. Legalizing the use of marijuana for medical reasons is an enormous leap for the Garden State. Previously, it was considered one of the states with a stiffer stance when it comes to crimes related to marijuana.
In the November 2020 election, with 67% of votes in favor, New Jersey citizens voted on permitting the possession, sale, and use of cannabis for adults 21 and over. However, at the time regulatory rules or structures were not included, so it might take a year or longer to see the licensing system and dispensaries in place.
To date, residents of New Jersey who pursue relief with the help of medical cannabis can access the medication without penalty.
