This is your final reminder that effective Thursday, September 2, 2021, all DC and non-resident patients and caregivers must have a valid registration to purchase medical cannabis from a DC dispensary. Initial notices alerting stakeholders to the reinstated requirement were sent in April 2021.

Please note the following

  • Patient applications must be accompanied by a recommendation provided by an eligible healthcare practitioner within 90-days of the application submission date

  • Telehealth recommendations continue to be accepted. Please note that medical cards or documents issued by private companies such as NuggMD, even if issued by a healthcare practitioner, are not eligible.

  • Applicants may use any form of valid U.S., state, territory, or District-issued photo ID to meet the photo identification requirement.

  • Expired government issued-photo identifications and/or proof of residence that expired during the public health emergency (March 1, 2020-September 9, 2021) will continue to be accepted through Thursday, September 9. Starting Friday, September 10, qualifying patients are required to provide dispensaries with a valid government-issued photo to purchase medical cannabis. This date is also the deadline for District residents to renew their expired driver’s license with the DMV.

  • District residency can be established by a variety of documents including copies of utility bills, credit card statements, leases, and deeds.

Registered patients and caregivers are highly encouraged to submit all required application materials ASAP to avoid processing delays. Applications received shortly before or on September 1 will likely not be processed before the deadline.

If you have any questions, please direct them to mcfacilities@dc.gov.
