    Informed Consent

    The physician obtains voluntary, written, informed consent from the patient.

  • Step 3

    Registry Order

    The physician enters the order into the Medical Marijuana Use Registry.

  • Step 4

    Apply for ID Card

    The patient must apply for a Medical Marijuana Use Registry Identification card.

  • Step 5

    Fill Order

    The patient may fill the order at any approved Medical Marijuana Treatment Center.
