  • Is medical marijuana legal in Maryland?

    Yes! Marijuana is legal in the Free State for both patients and caregivers once registered with the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission — or MMCC.

  • Is marijuana recreationally legal in Maryland?

    No, recreational cannabis is still illegal according to Maryland marijuana laws.

  • How long does it take to get a medical card?

    Getting your medical card in Maryland can take a few weeks. The MMCC has to first approve and review your application, and this can take 30 days or more, depending on the number of applications. Once you’re approved, you must obtain a valid, written certification from a registered provider and print out your temporary MMCC patient ID card. After doing all of this, you’ll get your permanent card and can purchase MMJ.

  • Can I go to a dispensary without a card?

    No, you cannot go to a Maryland dispensary without a card. You’ll need to have your temporary or permanent MMCC patient ID card to get into the dispensary and make purchases.

  • Can you fly with medical marijuana?

    No. Regardless of state law, marijuana is still illegal federally, and post-security areas in airports are technically ruled by federal agencies. In general, Maryland marijuana laws strictly outline that you cannot travel to any other states, countries, or jurisdictions with your MMJ.
