Benefits of Getting an Idaho Medical Card

When the laws pass, a medical card will be the only way to legally purchase medical cannabis in Idaho.

Idaho’s cannabis laws are rather strict, so it is likely that you will need a medical card should the state decide to legalize the plant. Unless the plant becomes legal on the federal level, adult use of cannabis will likely remain illegal for the foreseeable future in Idaho.

About Medical Marijuana in Idaho

Idaho has no medical marijuana program. Possession of any amount of cannabis is considered a crime in Idaho, and both medical and recreational marijuana is illegal. Idaho has one of the most punitive laws in the US when it comes to cannabis, as even possession of the smallest amounts may be considered a misdemeanor crime.

There have been attempts to reform Idaho’s cannabis laws, with ballot initiatives being voted for in 2012 and 2014. However, these initiatives failed. Another effort was made in 2020, but the ballot was suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In 2015, Senate Bill 1146a passed the Idaho Legislature, and would have legalized CBD oil for epileptic patients. Unfortunately, the bill was vetoed by Governor Butch Otter in April 2015. However, CBD oil containing up to 0.3% THC and the prescription, CBD-based Epidiolex are now legal in Idaho. Idaho was the last state in the US to legalize hemp.

    There are many medical conditions which cannabis may help. You can learn more about cannabis as medicine here.

Possession and Growing

At the moment, possessing and growing cannabis are both illegal in Idaho.

Once a medical cannabis law is passed, it will permit patients to carry a certain amount, to be determined.

We expect Idaho to have a caregiver program in the future

Under most cannabis laws, caregivers are included to allow patients who may be eligible for an MMJ Card but unable to apply for one themselves to get their medicine. For example, should the patient be a minor under 18, or if the patient needs assistance accessing medical cannabis, a caregiver can be assigned to complete the process on their behalf.

  1. 01

    Most states have a minimum age requirement for caregivers, usually 18+ or 21+.

  2. 02

    In many states, the caregiver must also have no criminal convictions relating to drug offenses or violent crimes.


Idaho doesn’t recognise other state’s medical cards because medical cannabis and recreational cannabis is illegal in the state.

Reciprocity is one key benefit for medical marijuana users. Unlike recreational cannabis users, medical marijuana users with a medical marijuana card can travel to the states listed above and purchase the medical marijuana they require while they are out of state.
