Frequently asked questions

How do I get a medical marijuana card in Nevada, and what documents do I need to qualify?

All patients must have the following documentation to register

Patients must be a Nevada Resident with a valid Nevada I.D. as proof of residency. If you do not have a Nevada I.D. an out-of-state I.D., passport, or other photo I.D. with proof of residency such as a bank statement, utility bill, etc. is acceptable.
Patients must obtain legitimate medical records or documentation from your primary care physician describing their diagnosis and bring these records with you to your marijuana evaluation appointment
The qualifying patient must have been diagnosed by a physician as having a debilitating medical condition.



Once a patient has obtained a written certification from a physician licensed in the state of Nevada, patients are required to submit an application to the Nevada State Health Division, with a written request and application fee, to the Nevada Medical Marijuana Program.
The Nevada DMV will issue the medical marijuana card/s.
* Please note: if you hold a Commercial Driver’s License, you are NOT eligible for a medical marijuana card.
