If qualified, what do I bring to my appointment?
The State of Arizona requires you to have seen a physician besides us in the past 12 months. If you have not been to a previous physician within 12 months we may have you be seen by an affiliate facility that we work with which will satisfy the Arizona requirement. Please bring the following:
Bring any records with you for your appointment if you have them in hand. If not we will simply do a medical request and have them sent over if needed. Arizona Department of Health requires one of these three forms of ID. Arizona Drivers License, Arizona Identification Card or U.S. Passport. You can pre-fill out our clinic intake forms if needed. You can find those on our site under “forms”. Please bring these if you chose to fill them out at home. Please have a valid residential Arizona address for mailing the Medical Marijuana Card. Arizona Department of Health will allow you to mail to a post office box but you must provide us with a physical address for your application submission.
Once approved, when do I receive my card?
If you choose for us to submit your application to the state, we estimate your card arriving between 7-10 business days. Arizona Department of Health processes applications on first come first serve basis so depending on how busy they are is how fast each application is processed. Once they finish they print and mail the card immediately.
I’m qualified, I got my card …. How long is this card good for?
From 90 days of your expiration date, you will receive and email reminding you your card expires and to make arrangements to get your renewal. AZDHS allows you to renew within that 90 day window without losing any of your full year. Your new card expires “one day” after your old one as long as you renew within that 90 day period.
