Medical Marijuana Program
Public Act 12-55, An Act Concerning the Palliative Use of Marijuana, was passed by the Connecticut General Assembly and signed into law on May 31st, 2012. Patients who are currently receiving medical treatment for a debilitating medical conditions set out in the law may qualify for a temporary registration certificate.
To qualify, a patient must also be at least 18 years of age and a Connecticut resident. Each patient may also register one primary caregiver if the need for a caregiver is documented by the patient's physician.
The temporary registration certificate application is available online and registration involves a three step process:
- Step 1: The physician initiates the registration process by logging into a secure, online system and certifying their patient.
- Step 2: After the physician electronically submits a valid certification, their patient can access the online system to complete the patient portion of the application.
- Step 3: If the physician certifies the need for a primary caregiver, the caregiver can log in after the patient, and complete the application.
