Medical Marijuana in D.C.


Medical cannabis users are the only ones who can buy from a dispensary in D.C. Medical patients can possess up to two ounces every month, though public use is still a criminal offense.


The process of obtaining a medical marijuana card in DC is extensive. Applicants must fill out the application, provide two forms of identification, present a recommendation from a licensed doctor, and pay a $100 fee.


Then, they must sit back and wait for the 30-day waiting period to end.

If you’re from out of state, you can still get cannabis if you have a medical card from another state with a “functionally equivalent Medical Marijuana Program.”

Application Link can be found on the DC Health Gov website
