Montana State Process (Renewals)

When renewing your Montana Medical Marijuana Card, you need to apply via the TransAction Portal.

The state will email you 30 days before your expiry. At this time you can apply via Leafwell to see a physician and get recertified. 

The state recommends that renewal applications be submitted at least 30 days prior to expiration to allow for sufficient review and processing time.

Before you start, have these supporting documents ready:

  • Photo of applicant
    • The style should be similar to a driver's license or passport photo
    • Clear, in colour, neutral background
    • From shoulders up, facing the camera
    • No hats, face masks, sunglasses
    • Taken within the last six months
  • Proof of Montana Residency
    • Montana driver’s license, Montana state or tribal identification card, voter registration form, Montana hunting or fishing license, etc.
  • Your Physician statement from Leafwell (dated within 60 days)
    • Minors need approval of two physicians
