  1. Hello,

    My pain management Dr wants me to try medical marijuana. She printed my records to bring to whoever needs to review them. Is the cost still 300.00 dollars? I am on disability and will have to budget for this.

    Thank you.

    Hi Miguel,

    Great question. You need to provide the following:

    “Arizona residency by providing the Department with a copy of the qualifying patient’s Arizona driver’s license, Arizona identification card, Arizona registry identification card, or photograph page in the qualifying patient’s passport. The qualifying patient must also obtain a written certification from an Arizona physician. If a qualifying patient can comply with these requirements, the qualifying patient may obtain an Arizona registry identification card, regardless of whether the qualifying patient also has a medical marijuana card from another state.” From ADHS.

    Hope that helps!

    Thank you,

      Hi Gary,

      Great question. Here’s what the ADHS advices on the topic: The qualifying patient must also obtain a written certification from an Arizona physician. If a qualifying patient can comply with these requirements, the qualifying patient may obtain an Arizona registry identification card, regardless of whether the qualifying patient also has a medical marijuana card from another state.
