You can now preregister for a therapeutic cannabis card!November 4, 2015 3:40 pm
The NH Department of Health and Human Services has allowed patients to submit applications to be pre-qualified for a Registry Identification Card that will allow the patient to obtain Therapeutic Cannabis.
The cards will not be issued until cannabis dispensaries have opened which will likely be some time in 2016. Currently there are dispensaries planned for Merrimack, Plymouth, Dover and Lebanon.
There will be a non-refundable $50 application fee and applicants are encouraged to carefully review the requirements to make sure they are eligible for a card. The applicant must submit a “written certification for the therapeutic use of cannabis” form that has been completed by the health care provider. The applicant must submit a digital photograph that will be used for the card in jpg. format that complies with the photo specifications. The applicant must submit proof of residency in NH. There are additional requirements for applicants who are under the age of 18 years old.
The application process will take up to 20 days from the date the completed application is received by the Therapeutic Cannabis Program. Click here for the application.
