FAQs

  • A physician who certifies a patient for the palliative use of marijuana is also responsible for assessing whether the patient needs a primary caregiver. The caregiver has to be documented by the patient’s physician in his or her written certification to the Department.
  • To be qualified as a patient’s primary caregiver, you must:
    • Be 18 years old or older;
    • Agree to undertake responsibility for managing the well-being of the qualifying patient with respect to the palliative use of marijuana;
    • Have not been convicted of a violation of any law pertaining to the illegal manufacture, sale or distribution of a controlled substance; and
    • Not be the qualifying patient’s physician.
  • No, the Department will only register a single caregiver on behalf of a patient.
  • Ordinarily no; the only exception is if you have a parental, guardianship, conservatorship or sibling relationship with each qualifying patient for whom you are registering to be the primary caregiver.
  • No. The law prohibits ingesting marijuana in or on:
    • a bus, a school bus or any moving vehicle;

    • in any public place; or
    • in the presence of anyone under 18.
    • It also prohibits any use of palliative marijuana that endangers the health or well-being of another person, other than the patient or primary caregiver.
