Q: How can I find out if I have a condition or illness that might benefit from medical marijuana?

All the qualifying conditions are listed here, and if you are still not sure just call us.

Cancer, Glaucoma, HIV, AIDS, Hepatitis C, ALS, Crohn's Disease, Alzheimer's, Cachexia or Wasting Syndrome, Muscle Spasms, Nausea, Epilepsy, Seizures, Multiple Sclerosis, and any condition that causes Severe and or Chronic Pain.

Q: Is it legal?

Yes! In November of 2010, the people of Arizona voted for and passed Proposition 203, the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act, which allows patients with a qualifying condition to get a registry identification card. Under the protection of Arizona Law, you can legally possess, use, and cultivate marijuana.

Setting up an appointment is simple! Just call us at 602-448-4655.

Q: How much does a Medical Marijuana card cost in Arizona? Are there any circumstances in which the fee can be reduced?

There are two costs associated with getting a Medical Marijuana card in Arizona. The fee for the doctor evaluation and the fee the state charges for certification. The state fee is $150.00. The state fee can be reduced to $75.00 if the patient participates in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. Please call for the physician evaluation pricing.

Q: Do I have to pay the fee if I do not receive a Medical Marijuana card?

No. The cost is $0.00 if you do not qualify for a card. Again, you will not pay anything if you do not qualify.

Q: Who will know I have a medical marijuana card?

Absolutely no one! The State keeps a database that can only be accessed with your 20 digit patient I.D. number that is located on your card. The system can't be accessed with a patient's name. It is not possible to look up a patients name to see if you participate in program. That includes law enforcement and employers.

Q: Does your clinic accept insurance?

Currently, insurance does not cover the cost of evaluations for medicinal marijuana use.

Q:Do I need to have a State issued Arizona Medical Marijuana ID card to legally possess, use, and cultivate medical marijuana?

Yes! The law only protects certified patients.

Q: What medical documentation should I bring to my appointment?

It is important for you to bring any medical documentation (from previous physician visits, chiropractor visits, etc.) that supports your diagnosis. This includes: recent medical records, chart notes, physician's letter, chiropractor's letter, or any other documentation that you think can help.

Q: What else should I bring?

The state requires a valid form of identification with your picture. You will need one of the following: driver's license, Arizona State Identification card, or Passport.

Q: How can I obtain my medical records?

Call your physician, practitioner, or the hospital where you were treated and tell them you want copies of your medical records. They will tell you the process and typically have you sign an authorization to fax to them. You can always call our office and we'll happily assist you in retrieving your records.

Q: What happens if I have not seen a physician in a long time, but I know medical marijuana will help my condition?

Please call us to discuss what options are available if you do not have current medical records.

Q: If I become a medical marijuana patient, where do I obtain medical marijuana?

There are numerous organizations and websites that will help you locate dispensaries, co-ops, and collectives. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about where and how to get medicine.
