Getting Your Connecticut Medical Marijuana Card

  1. Create an account with the DAS Business Network to access the online certification system. Use the following link to register for a free account:
  2. After completing this one-time registration process, you will receive an email to verify your account. Click on the link in the email to verify.
  3. Log in using the e-mail address and password you established during step 1. Once in, follow these steps:
    1. Select the "I am a Patient" option and the system will prompt you to provide identifying information:
      1. Date of Birth
      2. E-mail Address
    2. Review the information provided on the Patient Information webpage to ensure your information is correct.
    3. Enter the caregiver information at this time if applicable to you.
  4. Select and either mail or upload one (1) of the following:
    1. Proof of Identity
    2. Proof of Residency
    3. Photo
  5. You must read and affirm each statement by selecting "Yes."
  6. There is no mailed physical card. The state emails a certification within 30 days that will need to be printed, as it contains a cut-out card that can be used to shop.
    1. Tip: The state email is generated from:  If you are having difficulty locating the email, check your SPAM and try searching for "DCP."   
  7. Once you have your registry ID card, you can purchase products from a licensed medical cannabis pharmacy. To purchase, you’ll need your medical cannabis card and a valid form of photo ID.
