Going digital: Nevada medical marijuana patients can now apply online for MMJ cards
Published on Oct 5, 2016
After negotiating over the last year, state officials and the Nevada Dispensary Association have finally implemented an online system for patients to apply for their medical marijuana card. By eliminating the need for patients to physically go to the DMV and a Division of Public and Behavioral Health office, more patients will be able to register and obtain the necessary medication. Patients need only to visit with a doctor for approval to use medical marijuana, then the approval can be scanned and submitted online.
Nevada officials say they will now offer the medical marijuana card application process online.
The Las Vegas Sun reports that the doing so will eliminate the need for patients to make trips to a Department of Motor Vehicles branch and a Division of Public and Behavioral Health office. Patients will be able to submit all forms on the Nevada Dispensary Association website.
