Legal Topics

Navigating the legal landscape of medical marijuana can be a bit tricky, but we’re here to break it down for you. Here are some key points you should be aware of if you’re a medical cannabis patient in Arizona:

  • Delta-8, delta-10, and other psychoactive, hemp-derived cannabinoids are illegal in Arizona. Their use, possession, sale, distribution, and production are prohibited in the state due to concerns about the unregulated market and minors’ use of these products.
  • Recreational marijuana is legal for adult use in Arizona. For those 21 or older, possession of up to 1 ounce (28 g) of marijuana (with no more than 5 grams being marijuana concentrate) or growing up to six marijuana plants at their home (with up to 12 marijuana plants in households with two or more adult members) is now legal.

Caregivers

If you’re looking to become a caregiver for a medical marijuana patient in Arizona, there are some important rules and steps you’ll need to follow.

Picking Up for Patients

Good news! As a caregiver, you can pick up medicinal cannabis from a dispensary on behalf of a patient. Handy, right?

Caregiver Limitations

An individual may not serve as a Personal Caregiver for more than five patients at once. If the patient is a minor, having a caregiver is a must.

Application Process

Caregivers will need a completed physician’s attestation form, and they’ll require their completed application form, too. The process for a caregiver’s medical cannabis card is similar to the process for a patient.

Eligibility Criteria

If you have designated a caregiver within the ADHS online system, your caregiver must also apply.

  • Your patient application must be completed and approved before your designated caregiver can apply through the ADHS online system.
  • Your caregiver will need your qualified patient registry identification card number, full name, and date of birth to begin the application process.
  • Please note that your caregiver must also submit fingerprints to ADHS through the U.S. Mail as part of his or her application.
  • Caregiver application fee: $200

Timing

If approved, your application will be processed in 15 business days.

Reciprocity

Arizona has medical cannabis reciprocity laws with some limitations. To buy cannabis with an out-of-state medical card in Arizona, you must qualify as a “visiting qualifying patient.”

This means you must have an out-of-state medical cannabis card with a medical condition that satisfies Arizona’s medical cannabis requirements.

And if you’re an Arizona resident traveling elsewhere, the following states and U.S. territories also accept or recognize out-of-state medical marijuana cards:

  • Arkansas *
  • Delaware
  • Hawaii *
  • Louisiana
  • Maine
  • Michigan (at the dispensary’s discretion)
  • Nevada
  • New Hampshire
  • New Jersey *
  • New Mexico
  • Oklahoma *
  • Puerto Rico
  • Rhode Island
  • U.S. Virgin Islands *
  • Utah * (up to two 21-day periods in a calendar year)
  • Washington, D.C.

*Visitors must complete a visiting patient application with the state program.

How does the online evaluation process work for getting a medical marijuana card in Arizona?

The medical marijuana registration process is easy with Leafwell. There are three simple steps to seeing a Leafwell healthcare provider to get approved for an Arizona medical marijuana card:
  1. Register with Leafwell and speak to an Arizona-licensed healthcare provider via our HIPAA-compliant telehealth platform, which involves creating a Leafwell account using a valid email address. You'll be asked to complete a brief questionnaire of personal and health information and to either take or upload a photograph of identification (we're required by law to verify your identity). You will need a smartphone, computer, or tablet with a reliable internet connection and a working camera to be seen by a Leafwell provider.
  2. Schedule an appointment or enter the virtual waiting room. You will receive a text message on your cell phone when the provider is ready to see you, and then you'll be connected to a Leafwell healthcare provider for a video chat (i.e., a virtual doctor's visit). During the visit, your provider will assess your medical condition(s) to determine if you qualify for a medical marijuana certification.
  3. Once approved, you can download your Physician Certification Form to submit with your state application to the Arizona Department of Health Services. Your application will be processed within 15 business days and then you can download your electronic card.

How old do I have to be to apply for a medical marijuana card in Arizona?

You must be at least 18 years old to apply for an Arizona medical marijuana card. Minor patients may apply with consent from a custodial parent or legal guardian. Caregivers must be 21 or older.

Can I get an MMJ Card for my child in Arizona?

Minors under 18 can qualify for an Arizona medical marijuana card with consent from a custodial parent or legal guardian who will serve as their caregiver.
