Medical Marijuana Recommendations 

All medical marijuana patients must be registered through Ohio’s Medical Marijuana Control Program (MMCP).

Our doctors will provide a Statement of Affirmative Defense to qualified patients. Ohio lawmakers provided an Affirmative Defense as a way to reduce legal risks for medical marijuana patients and prove they are following Ohio law.  While there have been examples where officers may choose not to cite a person when they have an affirmative defense letter , an Affirmative Defense may not actually prevent an arrest or citation; it prevents conviction.

If you have questions regarding how the current laws regarding medical marijuana may affect you, please contact a licensed attorney with expertise in medical marijuana.

After approval, you will receive your Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program card directly from the state. Your card will be valid for 1 year.

3.What happens if I don't qualify?

Not everyone meets the state requirements or would benefit from Medical Marijuana. If this happens we will consult with you on alternative therapies and charge the consultation fee of $50.

4.What documentation does the state require?

The State requires proof of Ohio residency. All you need is a Ohio state issued I.D. or Driver’s License.
