How to Become a Medical Cannabis Patient in Minnesota 2021
1. Talk to your doctor.
Ask your doctor (or an advanced practice registered nurse or physician assistant) to discuss cannabis as a treatment option and to certify your qualifying medical condition. Your doctor, once approved to certify, will then digitally submit your certification to the Minnesota Department of Health’s Office of Medical Cannabis (OMC). If your doctor cannot certify you, we have a (non-exhaustive) list of Certified Providers.

2. Join the Minnesota cannabis registry.
Once you have been certified, you will receive a notification to formally register with the Minnesota Department of Health’s OMC. You will need to submit a $200 yearly fee (reduced for some patients*) and information that confirms your identity. The OMC will verify your information and confirm your entry into the state's registry via email. You can only legally purchase cannabis medication in Minnesota if you are active in the medical cannabis registry.
