You can become a medical marijuana patient in New Jersey in just a couple easy steps.
First, See a New Jersey Medical Marijuana Doctor
You'll need to be evaluated by a state-licensed medical doctor. If they determine that you are currently suffering from one of the NJMMP's qualifying conditions (see FAQ below for list of conditions), they will dispense an MMJ recommendation to you. The information on this recommendation will be necessary to register with the state program.
During this appointment, your doctor will also ask you to designate a specific dispensary within the state, as the NJMMP only allows its patients to register with a single dispensary at a time.
Register with the New Jersey Medical Marijuana Program
Using the information found on your MMJ recommendation, you then need to fill out a registration with the New Jersey Medical Marijuana Program (NJMMP). To register you first must:
To register, patients will need the following:
If the patient's photo ID in question has expired or does not include your most current physical address, patients can instead present two forms of proof of New Jersey residency.
Becoming a caregiver in New Jersey is not all that different from becoming a medical patient. If the designated caregiver is not an immediate family member of the medical patient in question, New Jersey law requires them to undergo a criminal background test before their caregiver registration can be processed.
The background check can be done with a service called IdentoGo, which conducts the collection of the applicant's fingerprints. After the background check has been cleared, caregiver applicants must pay the associated fee of $100 for their MMJ ID card.
Due east of the Delaware River and the state of Pennsylvania is the mid-Atlantic state of New Jersey. New Jersey is the fourth-smallest state by area, but the 11th most populated with almost 9 million residents and 9 million square miles. The state derives its name from the English who seized the area from the Dutch and the Swedish in the 17th century. They decided to name their new colony, New Jersey, after the Bailiwick of Jersey, one of the Channel Islands located near Normandy, France. Being one of the Thirteen American Colonies that declared its independence from the British Crown, New Jersey was the site of several consequential battles and events in the Revolutionary War. The most notable of which were the Battles of Trenton and Princeton.
New Jersey is one of the wealthiest states by median income. As such, it's home to many popular tourist attractions and landmarks. One of the most notable New Jersey attractions is Atlantic City, which houses some world-famous casinos and hotels such as the Borgata, the Hard Rock Hotel, Ocean City Resort, Wild Wild West Casino, along with the Atlantic City Boardwalk, Central Pier Arcade, and Steel Pier. Liberty State Park, the George Washington Bridge, Cape May Lighthouse, Turtle Back Zoo, Absecon Lighthouse, Kingda Ka (North America's tallest roller coaster), the Thomas Edison National Historical Park, Newark Museum of Art, and the Pine Barrens all call New Jersey their home.
New Jersey is one of the U.S. states to have legalized medical marijuana. However, the MMJ legislation has been controversial with politicians and residents alike. As a result, New Jersey has some of the strictest regulations for medical marijuana, and few dispensaries have opened as of now. Nevertheless, more are scheduled to open as time goes on, and enrollment in New Jersey's medical marijuana program increases. Those New Jersey residents who qualify for the use of medicinal cannabis can rely on NuggMD to help them along every step of the way. So what are you waiting for? Log on to NuggMD today!
A medical marijuana evaluation for the state of New Jersey using NuggMD only costs $139!
The New Jersey Medical Marijuana Program lists several different medical conditions that legally qualify for treatments with medicinal cannabis. These are:
The New Jersey Medical Marijuana Program Application fee is $100 for both patients and caregivers. Those applicants who are senior citizens, military veterans, or who qualify for the following New Jersey state and federal assistance programs can pay the discounted price of $20:
Medical Marijuana IDs are valid for 2 years after their issue date.
Yes. Before becoming an MMJ patient, you must first fill out the patient registration with the New Jersey Medical Marijuana Program (NJMMP). You can do so on the NJMMP site, here.
The Medical Marijuana Legislation in New Jersey does not give medical marijuana patients the right to ignore their workplace's drug testing policies. If you test positive for cannabis at a company with a drug-free workplace, you may still be fired despite your status as a medical patient. Be sure you become familiar with your employer's workplace drug policies before using medical marijuana.
No, New Jersey will not issue patients a temporary ID. Patients must wait the 7-10 for the MMJ ID to come in the mail.
New Jersey medical marijuana patients do not need to worry about being put on government lists after becoming MMJ patients. The only record of your being a medical marijuana patient will be with the New Jersey Medical Marijuana Program and the Department of Health.
If you do not have a New Jersey ID, you will have to submit two forms of proof of New Jersey residency with your current physical address listed. The following forms of proof of residency are accepted by the NJMMP:
The terms of our refund policy are the following: customers will be entitled to and receive a full refund if their medical marijuana recommendation forms are not delivered to them within 30 days following their MMJ evaluation.

The NJMMP requires that all medical marijuana that is sold in the state must be packaged in either 1/4 or 1/8 ounce units. The patient's particular MMJ health care provider will decide on the precise dosage; however, the maximum amount currently allowed to be possessed by New Jersey law is 3 ounces in 30 days. However, if a patient is terminally ill, they can possess an unlimited amount of medical marijuana.
Becoming a caregiver in New Jersey is as simple as registering with the NJMMP. However, if you are not an immediate family member of the designated patient, you must first undergo a criminal background check through your fingerprints. A printable form is available on the NJMMP website with information on how to make an appointment with IdentoGo, the service required by the state of New Jersey, to have your fingerprints collected. Then, caregivers must pay the registration fee associated with their MMP identification cards. But, since a background check is required before the registration, the fees will not be collected until the caregiver's criminal background check is processed and approved by the NJMMP. This can take up to three weeks.
It may take anywhere from 1-3 weeks for the NJMMP to process your MMJ application and mail your medical ID. However, in most cases, it will only take 7-10 for your application to be processed and your ID to be mailed.
As of now, dispensaries in New Jersey are not delivering medical marijuana. That doesn't mean, however, that the state is not allowing it. In fact, as of June 2020, 4 dispensaries are awaiting approval from the NJMMP to allow delivery services.
As of now, New Jersey does not allow out-of-state marijuana cards to be used in New Jersey. However, there are plans to form an additional medical marijuana commission that will allow out-of-state MMJ IDS to be used within New Jersey.
According to the state of New Jersey, a patient smoking medicinal marijuana is considered "smoking" as outlined in the Smoke Free Air Act. As such, the guidelines of the Smoke Free Air Act apply to medical marijuana smokers.
Patients may not smoke medicinal marijuana on a school bus or any other form of public transportation; in a private vehicle unless the vehicle is not currently operating; on any school grounds, in any correctional facility, at any public park or beach, at any recreation center or any area according to N.J.S.A. 2C:33-13.
Patients also may not operate, navigate, or be in control of any vehicle, aircraft, railroad train, or stationary heavy equipment vessel while under the influence of marijuana.
Those qualifying patients who are on parole and probation do not have any explicit restrictions in the New Jersey medical marijuana law. However, patients should first consult with their probation officers regarding the specific stipulations laid out in their sentencing agreement. In some cases, parolees or patients on probation are told that using cannabis, even if medically licensed, is a violation of their parole/probation agreement. Be sure to consult with your P.O. before using medical marijuana.
Some states include specific protections for those medical marijuana patients with children regarding how their use of medicinal cannabis is to be treated by the family courts in custody hearings. However, New Jersey's Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana Act does not include such protections.
As of this time, there is no such program for New Jersey patients beyond the discounted registration fee for those who qualify.
As of 2020, yes, there is a state sales tax on cannabis products. Initially, this was set at 6.625%. However, it was cut to 4% on July 1st. It will be cut again to 2% the following year, before being eliminated entirely in 2022. Nevertheless, local municipalities are still able to charge a 2% transfer fee on transactions within their town borders.
First time that I have ever tried to get a medical marijuana card and I'm so glad that I went through NuggMD.. It was very fast and everyone was so helpful, the doctor and staff were very nice and understood what I was going through. Quick and easy, and I was approved in less than 24 hours once I uploaded the right paperwork. I will definitely be recommending them to anyone I talk to who is looking to get their medical marijuana card.
This was such a simple process. Fill out the application and you get in line to have a quick (And I mean very quick - under 5 minutes) chat with the doctor. My wait was just over 5 minutes for the doctor. Soooo much better than going into a doctors office where you are waiting hours and hours.
The whole process start to finish took less than 30 minutes. Was super simple and the Doctor was very friendly and understanding. Got my approval and my certificate within a few hours. Very affordable much less than everyone else. Sent all my friends the web link!!
Getting my license was a very big step for me so finding this site was a blessing. Signing up was easy and the virtual visit was very nice and pleasant. The Dr was very nice and understanding. I got my approval really quickly and was able to apply with state the next afternoon. All in all a really good experience.
NuggMD was the easiest online experience I've ever had. The process was quick, easy, and was processed just as quickly. The doctor I spoke with was super nice and gave clear direction on how to set everything up. And their customer service was quick - Their customer success director Freddy wants to make sure you're taken care of and will reach out directly to do so. So far everyone I've worked with and the whole experience has been great. Would recommend
