    • The first step to getting a medical marijuana registry card in Delaware is to meet with your physician about medical marijuana. Your physician MUST be licensed to practice in Delaware and be a MD (Medical Doctor) or DO (Doctor of Osteopathic medicine). Depending on if you apply online or via paper application, your physician will complete a physician certification if he or she feels that you will benefit from the use of medical marijuana.
  • Step 2 - Complete the Patient Application
    • Complete the patient application, or pediatric patient application, in its entirety. You can apply online, or print a paper copy of the application. If you will require a caregiver, ensure that the caregiver completes a caregiver application. Information on how a caregiver can apply can be found here.
  • Step 3 - Pay the non-refundable application fee
    • The fee is $50.00 and is non-refundable for all who apply. If you apply online, there will be a section for payment options. If you are mailing your application, please include a check or money order for $50.00, payable to the State of Delaware.
  • Step 4 - Submit proof of age and residency
