You can get a medical marijuana card in Michigan if you are an adult that is at least 18 years old. A minor under the age of 18 can get a card also, but only if the persons parent or legal guardian gets a written certification from two qualified doctors and consents in writing to their child’s use of medical marijuana.
There is no age limit for patients seeking medical marijuana, but the registered caretaker of the patient must be at least twenty-one years old. Those younger than eighteen years old must get a parent or guardian’s approval before they receive authorization for medical marijuana, and the parent or guardian must be the registered caregiver of the patient.
Currently there exists no minimum age requirement for registered patients of Michigan’s Medical Marijuana Program. Those younger than 18 must have parent or guardian consent to be eligible for the program. Additionally, said parent or guardian must be the registered caregiver for the minor and over the age of 21.
