MN Medical Marijuana Certification and Approval Process

In 2014 the State of Minnesota passed a law that created the Medical Marijuana Program. The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) was tasked with creating guidelines for patients, caregivers and manufacturers to ensure positive health outcomes and safety. MN MDH has created an Office of Medical Cannabis (MNDOH OMC) that now maintains a patient registry of people who have been determined by a registered healthcare provider to have a qualifying condition that allow them to receive medical marijuana as a treatment option.

Placement on the registry allows patients to receive medical cannabis from one of the eight MN approved Medical Cannabis Offices (e.g. dispensaries).

At TimeWise Medical we believe in applying the best solutions to the real problems that our patients face. We believe that for many patients medical marijuana is the safest, most effective treatment option available. We are committed to empowering those in need to navigate the process of receiving medical marijuana in a safe and private manner.

As a patient of Dr. Adam Locketz in the Minnesota Medical Marijuana program you will learn about the process for receiving Medical Marijuana in our State.
