In order to legally possess medical marijuana, a patient must first obtain a valid recommendation from a State-licensed medical doctor.

Frequently Asked Questions & Answers
How Much Medical Marijuana Can A Patient Grow With A Standard MMJ Recommendation Letter?
Qualified patients are exempt from the state permit program if cultivating less than 100 square feet for personal medical use. Primary caregivers with five or fewer patients are allowed up to 500 square feet (AB 243, 11362.777(g) and SB 643, 19319). Exemption under this section does not prevent a local government from further restricting or banning the cultivation, provision, etc. of medical cannabis by individual patients or caregivers in accordance with its constitutional police powers under Section 7, Article XI of the CA Constitution (11362.777(g)).
Can Anyone Have Access To My Medical Marijuana Health Information?
No. Your information is secured and completely private between the patient and the doctor. Your medical record will be kept confidential and secure.
