Acceptable Proof of ID for a NY Medical Card ID number from your NYS Driver’s License or NYS Non-Driver ID Card. When registering online, do NOT upload a copy of your ID. You only need to enter the 9- digit number in the NYS DMV ID field provided on the registration screen. Those without a NY, NYS Driver’s License or NYS Non-Driver ID Card can upload a recent photo; head and shoulders up on a plain background (jpg format) with no hat or sunglasses. This photo can be taken with a cell phone or camera. You will need appropriate identification (ID) in order to get a medical marijuana card in New York. If you do not have a driver’s license, you will need to take a photograph and upload it to the New York medical marijuana registry. Only residents of New York can apply for a NY medical marijuana card. Out-of-state ID is not acceptable.
