Not Sure If You Qualify For a Medical Marijuana Card?
Medical Marijuana patients in Nevada must be at least 18 years of age (or may be a minor with a parent or legal guardian designated as his/her primary caregiver) and must be a full-time resident of Nevada to register with the Division of Public and Behavioral Health’s Medical Marijuana Registry (MMR).
In order to register, a patient must meet with their Nevada-licensed physician after requesting and obtaining a Medical Marijuana Registry application packet from the division. Only an M.D. or D.O. physician will be able to complete a portion of the application and provide a recommendation establishing that you have a qualifying medical condition specified by law.
