    Attend your appointment and discuss with your physician why you would like an MMJ Card

    The doctor will review any medical records you’ve submitted and ask you questions based on your medical history. They will provide you with advice and guidance on whether medical marijuana is a good choice for you. They will either approve you or request further information during this call.

  3. 3

    Receive your Certificate from Leafwell

    The Attending Provider’s Statement confirms that your doctor recommends you become a cannabis patient under the state’s current laws and this certificate is required to apply for your MMJ Card. It will be emailed to you after the appointment.

    Apply for a Card with the State of Oregon

    After your appointment, you’ll receive the next steps to help guide you through the state process. Once approved, the state will mail you your card (please note that the card is not sent by Leafwell). The card is valid for 1 year.

1998 – Oregon Ballot Measure 67 legalizes medical marijuana in Oregon.
2000 – The U.S. District Court suggests that physicians who are recommending cannabis in good faith should not have to face fears of sanction by the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA).

Possession and Growing

Medical marijuana patients may possess up to 24 ounces of usable cannabis. Recreational cannabis users can carry a maximum of 1 ounce on their person, and 8 ounces in their homes. That is a huge difference and many people choose to get a medical card because it offers so much!

Qualifying patients may grow up to 16 plants, 6 mature and 10 seedlings per residence. Non-medical users can grow up to 4 plants per residence.

Do not take your cannabis over state lines. Keep your cannabis in Oregon. If you are moving around the state of Oregon with cannabis, keep it to reasonable amounts.

Caregivers

Medical Marijuana patients in Oregon can have a caregiver.

Caregivers are those who have been nominated to provide qualifying patients access to medical cannabis, in particular minors and those who are unable to go to a dispensary or grow cannabis on their own.

The designated primary caregiver is the person that has significant responsibility for managing the well-being of a person who has been diagnosed with a debilitating medical condition.

Primary caregiver does not include the patient’s physician. Here's some more important information for caregivers:

  1. 01

    Medical cannabis caregivers must be at least 21 years of age.

  2. 02

    A patient may only have one primary caregiver.

  3. 03

    The caregiver can be added as part of the application process.

  4. 04

    There is no additional fee.

card-reciprocity
Reciprocity

Oregon does not recognize other states’ medical marijuana cards, certificates or recommendations. You must be aged 21 or over in order to purchase recreational cannabis in Oregon.

A valid Oregon medical marijuana card may, however, be recognized by other states with medical marijuana reciprocity allowances in their programs. This 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.
