Medical Marijuana Program Updates


Compassionate Use Card

Starting March 1, 2020, Delaware licensed physicians may now certify a patient with a serious debilitating medical condition who previously did not qualify for medical marijuana treatment under the Medical Marijuana Program through the newly created "Compassionate Use Card" (CUC). The CUC is a card issued by the Department that authorizes the use of medical marijuana under specific conditions including:

The patient has a severe and debilitating condition;

  • All current standard care practices and treatments have been exhausted and have been ineffective, or the side effects are prohibitive with continued use;
  • The certifying physician will re-evaluate and document the efficacy of medical marijuana treatment by following the intervals directed in the program regulations;
  • Certifying physicians must develop a comprehensive treatment plan for patients at risk of abuse or misuse of marijuana as a treatment option;
  • The physician will provide scientific support showing potential for the patient to benefit from using medical marijuana. The Department will review pertinent research articles or peer reviewed studies for evidence that medical marijuana may provide some benefit for the condition.

Automated Renewal Notification

Delaware Medical Marijuana Program participants who have registered a valid email address with the Office of Medical Marijuana will receive a notice when the patient card is within 90 days of expiration through the BioTrack notification system. The notice will provide patients with renewal information. Patients who do not have a registered email address are encouraged to provide a valid email address when they renew their card.
