How to Get a Medical Marijuana Card in Maryland


You'll need an MMCC Patient ID Number so your doctor can upload your certification once you're approved for cannabis treatment. Registration with the portal is quick, easy, and only needs to be repeated every three years.


With NuggMD, your evaluation costs just $149 and can be completed entirely from the comfort of your own home.


Once you're approved, your doctor will upload your certification to the MMCC's patient registration portal. Then the state will prepare your temporary ID.

You don't have to wait for your ID to arrive in the mail before you can go to the dispensary. As soon as you're approved in the state's system, you can print out your temporary card and head to the nearest dispensary!


More About Cannabis in Maryland

Medical cannabis was legalized in Maryland in 2013 by state law, but the Natalie M. LaPrade Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission didn't become fully operational until December 2017.

Governor Martin O'Malley decriminalized possession of 10 grams or less in 2014. Such a possession charge is now equivalent to a traffic ticket with a $100 fine for first-time offenses and $250 for the second offense. All violations after that are a $500 fine, but it's doubtful that many people face this problem because it's so simple to get a medical marijuana card in Maryland. Marijuana paraphernalia is also decriminalized. 

Efforts are underway to put a recreational legalization initiative on the ballot in 2022. The Maryland House of Delegates formed a bipartisan workgroup to develop the proposed legislation. If you support the legalization of recreational cannabis in Maryland, you can contact your legislator and let them know you support legalization efforts in the state.

    How to Become a Patient Caregiver in Maryland

    Patient caregivers can purchase and administer cannabis for a registered patient. A caregiver may serve no more than five registered patients at any given time. 

    Caregivers must be at least 21 years old and must register with the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission. Only legal guardians or parents may serve as caregivers for minors.

    It costs $50 to register as a caregiver. You can review the registration process on the state's caregiver process overview page.

      More About Maryland

      Maryland is bordered by the recreationally legal state of Virginia and Washington D.C. Known as the Chesapeake Bay State and the Old Line State, Maryland was one of the original 13 colonies of the early United States. 

      The state is a popular tourist destination due to attractions like the Harborplace, Camden Yards baseball stadium, and the Baltimore Aquarium. Maryland's historic district is particularly trendy among history buffs due to the state's role in the Civil War. 

      Proponents of full cannabis legalization in the state can expect to see a fully functional legalization referendum on the ballot in 2022 if the legislative workgroups can iron out the wrinkles in a proposed law during the current legislative session.


      Frequently Asked Questions

      Does NuggMD Maryland have a refund policy?

      down arrow

      You will not be charged for your evaluation if you're not approved for medical marijuana treatment. We provide a full refund within 30 days for Maryland residents if their certification isn't completed with the MMCC. Because your certification is immediately valid once entered into the MMCC's online registry, a refund will no longer be available once your doctor uploads it.

      If you need a refund before your certification is completed, please email with the subject line "Refund Request" and a brief description of your issue. We want to make sure you are 100% satisfied with your purchase being that you, the customer, are the most important thing to us. Once you're refunded, you'll have to receive a new evaluation if you change your mind and wish to continue the certification process with the state. Once a refund has been initiated, please allow for 3-5 business days for the funds to transfer back to the card you used for the transaction. If any issues arise, please feel free to reach back out for further assistance.

      Where can I buy medical marijuana in Maryland?

      down arrow
