Getting Your Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Card

  1. Your Leafwell physician will have passed all required details to the Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Registry following your appointment - all the difficult work is done for you by our team!

  2. Log back into the Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Registry:

  3. Pay the $50 state fee.

    • Patients who participate in assistance programs including Medicaid, PACE/PACENET, CHIP, SNAP, and WIC may be eligible for a $0 state fee.

  4. Receive your card in the mail.

    • The state will mail your medical card to your address. It normally takes 1-2 weeks to arrive after you’ve paid the fee. The card will be valid for 1 year.

  5. Legally purchase cannabis from an approved dispensary.

    • To purchase medical cannabis, you must bring your medical cannabis card and a valid form of photo identification, such as a driver’s license, with you to the pharmacy.

Please note:

You have 90 days from the date of your certification to submit the annual state fee. Failure to do so may result in additional fees.
