Medical Marijuana

Due to the current COVID-19 Shelter-In-Place orders​ in Santa Clara County, we are not conducting Medical Marijuana Identification Card Program appointments until Shelter-In-Place restrictions have been lifted. We appreciate your patience and support during this time. Thank you.   

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 (We do not accept cash. We accept credit, debit, money order or check):

  • $100 for each medical marijuana identification card 
  • $50 for Medi-Cal beneficiaries  


Additional Information
