A new proposal from the state Department of Health in Pennsylvania calls for Pennsylvania residents paying $50 under patient and caregiver registry regulations to apply for a medical marijuana identification card.
Acting Health Secretary and Physician General Dr. Rachel Levine stated, “Every day, we hear from patients who are desperately waiting for this program to be fully implemented.”
“These proposed regulations for patients and caregivers to participate are one of the final pieces we need to have in place to launch the program sometime next year.”
The proposal also calls for a reduced or waived fee for those who are under financial hardship and include required certain documents when applying.
The new proposal all calls for applicants to include their name, address, telephone number, date of birth, email address, and a valid photo ID or driver’s license number if applicable.
The ID cards will be valid for up to a year.
