Medical Marijuana Program Updates

Below are the new changes that House Bill 285 has created to the Medical Marijuana Program.  Due to numerous software modifications needed, the below changes will be implemented on July 1, 2024.

• HB285 removed the requirement that a patient has a debilitating medical condition to qualify for a registry identification card.  This allows health care providers to decide if the patient has a diagnosed medical condition for which they would receive therapeutic or palliative benefit from the use of marijuana.
• HB285 also removes the CBD rich and compassionate use programs, which previously allowed for the use of marijuana for the treatment of conditions that otherwise did not qualify a patient for a medical marijuana card. 
• HB285 allows patients aged 65 and older to self- certify their qualification for a medical marijuana identification card without written certification from a health care provider.
• HB285 authorizes the medical marijuana program to issue registry identification cards with 1,2-, or 3-year expiration dates.  
• HB285 requires the issuance of a registry identification card with an indefinite expiration date where the patient has a terminal illness.
• HB285 allows individuals with out-of-state medical marijuana identification cards to make purchases in Delaware dispensaries.  
If you have any questions, please contact the Medical Marijuana staff at 302-744-4749, option #5.
