How Do I Get My MMJ Card?
Unfortunately, the Missouri Medical Marijuana Program (MMMP) is not sending out physical copies of your MMJ license for you to prove you are a medical cannabis patient. Instead, the state expects you to access your Missouri medical marijuana patient ID card through the patient registry, in your account. From there, you will be able to save a digital copy to your smartphone or print out a copy of it.
In this article, we’ll tell you how to access the PDF of your MMJ patient license, how to download it to your computer or phone, and even offer a service through Elevate Holistics to have a physical card sent to you.
When Do I Need to Show My Medical ID?
Perhaps the greatest, most important reason to have your patient ID on you is that you need it to get into dispensaries. So, if you want to purchase your medical cannabis, you will need a copy on you or on your phone.
Additionally, you will possibly need to prove your MMJ patient status if a cop pulls you over while in possession of medical marijuana. If you are home cultivating, you will also need to have proof that you are a MO patient, along with proof that you or your caregiver is licensed with the state to cultivate.
Basically, anytime you want to purchase MMJ or are going to be in possession of it, you should have your patient ID card ready on you or your phone.
How to Download Your Missouri Medical Marijuana Patient ID Card
Once approved, you can only access your patient ID card through your MMMP account. Registered patients and caregivers are required to have their cards available to show when purchasing or in possession of medical cannabis.
We recommend having a copy on you at all times.
Follow these steps to download your MMJ patient card:
- Log into your MMMP registry account at mo-public.mycomplia.com.
- ID cards for approved licenses can be accessed from the homepage by going to the “ACTIONS” column to the far right of the screen.
- Click on the button underneath “ACTIONS”.
- Select “DOWNLOAD LICENSE”.
- Save a copy of your digital ID card to your device and print it off for your records.
For those who prefer visual instruction, a video tutorial is available on how to access your patient ID card.
