Patient ID card Requirements are as follows: 
  • Massachusetts medical marijuana patients must be 18 years of age or older to register for the Department of Health’s medical marijuana program

  • A registered patient must submit a written Certification Form with your MMJ application, which is where Leafy DOC can help. We can assist with booking your appointment for a doctor’s visit after submitting your online application and then provide the Physician Certification so that you can apply for your Massachusetts medical marijuana license.

Caregiver requirements include providing current identification that proves Massachusetts residency. You can use two forms of identification: 

  • A valid driver’s license
  • State ID card
  • U.S. passport or Military ID 
  • Proof of residency

A personal caregiver has to be at least 21 years of age and a Massachusetts resident. A caregiver must renew their medical cannabis card annually to remain valid. Once the state approves, the caregiver will be given a registration number allowing them to purchase cannabis on their patient’s behalf.
