Can I get a medical cannabis card for my child in Mississippi?

Minors under 18 can qualify for a Mississippi medical marijuana card with consent from a custodial parent or legal guardian, serving as their caregiver.

The Mississippi Medical Cannabis Program (MMCP) requires the following for minor patients:

  • Minors must be approved by two physicians (MD/DO), in person, from separate practices.
  • Caregivers for minor patients must be the child’s primary custodial parent or legal guardian.
  • Documentation of custody must be uploaded with the caregiver application in the form of a birth certificate or legal documents designating custody.

Although not technically minors, the MMCP requires individuals between 18 and 25 to receive two certifications from practitioners, with one being a physician (MD/DO), at separate practices following an in-person consultation. However, the in-person requirement is waived for homebound individuals and those with an MMCP identification card before turning 18.
