As medical marijuana continues to gain recognition for its potential therapeutic benefits, more and more states are legalizing use of the drug. Massachusetts is one of the most recent states to adopt medical marijuana regulations. For qualifying patients, obtaining a medical marijuana card in Massachusetts is a fairly straightforward process that begins with certification from an authorized health care provider. Patients need to fill out an application at the Department of Public Health website and submit it with a valid copy of their Massachusetts driver’s license or state ID and a clear photo. After this is complete, they are eligible to purchase up to 10 ounces of marijuana every two months from certified dispensaries.
