How Long Does It Take To Get a Card in
Don’t worry: you won’t have to wait long to get your MA MMJ card.

Can Minors Get Medical Cards in Massachusetts?
Yes, patients under the age of 18 with a qualifying medical condition can also get a Massachusetts medical card with the help of a caregiver.
In Massachusetts, this caregiver must be your parent or legal guardian if you are under 18. The caregiver will visit the medical dispensary and purchase products for you. Adult patients who are physically unable to visit the dispensary can also designate a caregiver.
For adult patients, the caregiver does not have to be a parent or family member.
Unfortunately, Elevate Holistics does not offer appointments for minors at this time.

Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, Massachusetts marijuana legalization began in 2008, when the state opted to decriminalize small amounts of marijuana. In 2012, the state legalized medical marijuana for patients with certain chronic health conditions. As a result, dispensaries started opening in 2013.
Then, recreational marijuana in Massachusetts was legalized in 2016.
This means that cannabis is fully legalized in the Bay State; though, it’s important to keep in mind that medical cannabis brings many more benefits than recreational.
To get your Massachusetts medical marijuana card, you will have to provide proof of your MA residency, as well as an appropriate photo of yourself. You will also need to submit your personal identification number which your physician will provide you once approved for MMJ.
People choose to get their Massachusetts medical marijuana cards for various reasons. But, since the state has legalized recreational cannabis, it’s becoming increasingly more common that medical cannabis brings significant benefits that adult-use doesn’t.
For example, medical cannabis in Massachusetts isn’t subject to any state excise taxes. Adult-use consumers, however, have to pay an additional 10.75% in taxes on each purchase they make at a dispensary. This makes recreational cannabis much, much more expensive than medical weed.
There is no state fee to get your Massachusetts medical marijuana card! You only have to pay for your appointment itself, and this cost will vary depending on where you go.
At Elevate Holistics, you can get your MA MMJ card for just $130.
Yes, you can! However, Massachusetts medical marijuana caregiver laws state that prospective caregivers have to first register with the MMP using the patient’s physician-provided PIN. From there, the program will analyze your credentials and either approve or deny you.
To be a caregiver in Massachusetts, you must be at least 21 years old and cannot serve more than one patient at a time. You and your patient have to maintain an active registration with the MMP.
Finally, it’s vital to carry your Massachusetts Medical Use of Marijuana registration card with you at all times when possessing or buying cannabis for your patient.
In Massachusetts, you can possess up to one ounce of marijuana on your person at one time. You can have up to 10 ounces in your home, though.
