Get a Doctor's Certification
Massachusetts requires doctors to be certified by the state in order to provide cannabis recommendations. If your primary care doctor is not certified, you might need to find a doctor elsewhere. Please call Sanctuary and our staff will help locate a doctor for you. Additionally, you can click here for more information on certified physicians. Once a doctor has certified that you qualify, you can move on to the next step.
Note: Pediatric patients need to have TWO doctor recommendations.
Register With The State
The doctor that certified you for the Massachusetts Medical Use of Marijuana program will give you a registration number. This number will be used to complete the medical marijuana online system registration process. Click Here to Register Online
For additional questions or information on the registration process, please call your doctor or click here.
Once you have finished registration and you have been approved by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, you will receive your Medical Use of Marijuana Program Identification Card in the mail.
Note: If you prefer registering with paper forms, call DPH at (617) 660-5370 to request paper forms.
