Who Can Get a Medical Card in Nevada?

To actually obtain a medical card in Nevada, you must be an in-state resident and have been diagnosed by a licensed physician as having at least one of the state’s qualifying medical conditions. 

Those under the age of 18 are welcome to get a medical card, but parents or guardians must be the ones to fill out the paperwork and make cannabis-related decisions for the child.

What Are the Qualifying Conditions for Medical Cannabis in Nevada?

In Nevada, you must be diagnosed with at least one of the following medical conditions to receive your card: 

  • Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS)
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Cancer
  • Glaucoma
  • Cachexia
  • Severe pain
  • Severe nausea
  • Seizures, including without limitation, seizures caused by epilepsy
  • Persistent muscle spasms, including, but not limited to, spasms caused by multiple sclerosis

How-To Steps for Getting an MMJ Card in Nevada

1: Make an Appointment With a Qualified Physician 

To get your MMJ card in the Battle Born State, you have to make an appointment to be evaluated by a qualified physician. This physician will then determine whether or not your conditions qualify for a medical marijuana card. 

2: Receive a Physician's Recommendation and Apply Online

If they do approve you for cannabis, your doctor will provide you with signed documentation stating their certification. Hang onto this! You will need this recommendation to apply online.

Then, head over to the State of Nevada Medical Marijuana Program website and register through their online portal. (You don’t have to do it this way, as mail-in applications are accepted; the process is just going to take quite a bit longer.) Along with your recommendation, you will also need to submit a photocopy of a Nevada state ID to prove residency and identification.

3: Submit Your Documentation and Wait for Your Card

Once you go to submit your documentation, you will be asked to pay a one-time registration fee of either $50 or $100 depending on how long your card will be valid. As soon as all of this has been put in the system, the only thing left to do is wait. Your Nevada MMJ card should show up in the mail within about 30 days. But, don’t worry! You’ll get a temporary one until then in case you want to do some shopping.
