MedMar Medical LLC (DPH Reg. No. D11021) was formed to permit qualified patients to possess and use marijuana for medical purposes. Qualifying patients seeking to self-medicate with cannabis and to have access to dispensaries must possess a MA Department of Health (“DPH”) medical marijauna (“MMJ”) license.
To obtain an MMJ license, qualifying patients must be certified by a DPH registered medical provider. With the MedMar Medical issued certification code, a patient then has to register with the DPH in order to obtain or maintain an MMJ license. We will provide written instructions on how to self-register through the MMJ Online System (See DPH 15-Step Registration). If a patient is unable to self-register, we offer an optional service which will assist with the submission. We will take a photo, scan all necessary documents, make the payment of the state fee (if required), and provide evidence of the submission. Please see the fees for our services (Services and Fees).
If the registration is approved by the DPH, a patient will receive an MMJ license. The card itself is replaced every three years, BUT YOU MUST STILL BE RE-CERTIFIED BY A PHYSICIAN AT LEAST ONCE A YEAR and re-register with the state annually or the card becomes invalid.
Under the final regulations issued by the DPH, a Qualifying Patient must be a “Massachusetts resident 18 years of age or older who has been diagnosed by a Massachusetts licensed certifying physician as having a debilitating medical condition…“. A debilitating condition is one that affects and substantially limits one or more major life activities including activities such as eating, sleeping, ambulating, working, and socializing. Therefore the final decision for certifying a qualifying patient is left to a qualified Massachusetts licensed physician. Minors are covered under different regulations and require certfication by two physicians.(See Final DPH Regulations)
