Medical Marijuana Cards in Georgia
How to get Medical Marijuana Card in Georgia
In order to qualify for a card, applicants must be examined by a medical doctor who will attest that the patient does, indeed, suffer from one of the qualifying medical conditions. There are two forms — a waiver form which must be signed by both the applicant and the physician, and a physician certification form.
If your doctor doesn’t offer this service, you’ll need to get copies of your medical records and look for a doctor that does.
If your physician deems you worth, they will electronically submit the completed forms to the Georgia Department of Public Health.
Applying for a Georgia Med Card
- Patients and caregivers of patients who believe they may be eligible should consult with their physician about the possibility of obtaining a card allowing them to possess 20 fluid ounces of low THC oil.
- If approved by the physician, the patient or patient’s caregivers’ information will be entered into DPH’s secure “Low THC Oil Registry” and a MMJ card will be issued.
- Patients and caregivers will be notified when the cards are ready for pickup within 15 business days from one of several public health offices geographically spread around the state.
