Medical Marijuana for Patients with Qualifying Conditions

In order to access medical marijuana in the state of Colorado, you must have a qualifying condition that the state accepts.

The state has agreed to allow physicians to certify individuals with the following conditions: AIDS/HIV, Arthritis, Cancer, Chronic Pain, Degenerative Disc Disease, Glaucoma, Migraines, Neuropathy, Opiate Dependence, PTSD, Seizures/Epilepsy, and Severe Nausea.

If you have any of these conditions, you may undergo a medical evaluation with a physician who will thoroughly discuss the positive and negative aspects of utilizing cannabis as a treatment for your condition and approve you for a medical card if you meet the requirements.

In order to obtain your medical card in the state of Colorado, you must also be able to prove that you are a Colorado resident. The easiest way to do this is to have a valid Colorado drivers license or identification card. You may still be able to register with the state without either of these forms of identification, but you will have to present other proofs of residency. You can find this information in the state regulations which are available in this linked blog post.
