The Medical Marijuana Program is a program of the State of California that was established following the passage of SB 420 that requires counties to administer a voluntary card registration program that identifies medical marijuana patients.
If you have a chronic illness or medical issue that allows you to use medical marijuana for treatment, you may be eligible for a Medical Marijuana Identification Card.
How Do I Get A Card?
In order to apply for the Medical Marijuana Identification Card, you must provide written documentation from a licensed physician verifying that medical marijuana is needed to treat your medical condition, proof of residency, a government-issued photo identification, and a non-refundable fee payment (cash only):
- $100 for each medical marijuana identification card
- $50 for Medi-Cal beneficiaries
For questions regarding regulations, cultivation, and compliance, please call the City of San Jose Division of Medical Marijuana Control at (408) 537-1420 or email email@example.com.
