What is a Recognition Card?

When you join the medical marijuana authorization database you are issued a Recognition Card that you can carry with you.  This card enables you many benefits, such as sales tax exemption on marijuana products.  (The 37% excise tax is still required).

What is a medical marijuana authorization?

This form is issued by a healthcare practitioner who has been given the ability to authorize marijuana for medical purposes. This form identifies you as a medical marijuana patient.  It also enables you to get a recognition card.

Can a certified medical marijuana consultant add a designated provider?

No.  Only your prescribing health practitioner can do this.

How do I register my designated provider?

Patient and designated provider (DP) MUST come in together to a medically endorsed retail store.  You will need the medical marijuana consultant so call ahead to make sure one is available.  The patient needs to bring in their own original tamper proof authorization and their designated provider needs to also have their own original tamper proof authorization.  (Proper photo identification also needs to be brought in for age verification.)  This enables the consultant to issue a DP recognition card.

What is the Authorization Database?

Only medical marijuana patients with a valid authorization form may join the medical marijuana authorization database.  Joining the database allows patients to receive their medical marijuana recognition card. Joining the authorization database is voluntary for patients age 18 and older.  Patients under the age of 18 are required to join the database in order to be a medical marijuana patient. Getting a recognition card by joining the database has several benefits for medical marijuana patients.

How do I remove my information from the database?

Just submit a notarized “revocation request form” to the Medical Marijuana Database Administrator. You can find the form and further instructions here: http://www.doh.wa.gov/YouandYourFamily/Marijuana/MedicalMarijuana/AuthorizationDatabase
