If you don’t know, know you know…
Moving forward there is a new process in Massachusetts for keeping and obtaining your medial marijuana privileges. Many of you may already now know, but starting February 1st of this year, (Last week if your reading this now) the Department of Public Health is now requiring electronic certifications from their medial marijuana doctor (The Holistic Center in Boston Massachusetts). That means those paper certifications starting Feb 1st do not mean anything!
The main reason for this is that the new medial marijuana dispensaries are required to log into a new government database where the patient is registered. Once you, the patient, goes to see the physician to re-register, and once you are re-approved, you will be then added to this database. When the patent goes to a dispensary to obtain medical marijuana, all they will need is your state issued ID or drivers license.
If you have already been certified by the Holistic Center in the past, this re-certification is an easy process. Massachusetts is a fairly strict state in general so this is no surprise that patients are required to re-register. This is also a new process for most of the US so don’t be surprised if the process changes once again down the road.
If you have any questions regarding the cost, process, and if you are eligible to receive your electronic medial marijuana certificate please call the Holistic Center at: 617-787-7400
