    A person has to be 18 years of age in order to get a medical marijuana card in New York. A minor or person unable to to consent on their own may get one if: the parent or legal guardian consents, person appointed by parent or legal guardian consents or some the Department appoints (upon proof that no legal guardian/parent is available) consents for person to get a card.

    The applicant for a medical marijuana card in New York must not be under the age of eighteen (18) or a person who is otherwise incapable of consenting to medical treatment, the application must be submitted by an appropriate person over twenty-one (21) years of age. There is a non-refundable application fee of fifty dollars ($50) that will be billed to you at a later date.

    You need to be at least 18 to apply for a medical marijuana card if you meet New York’s strenuous eligibility requirements. But even under the age of 18, you can have your parents apply for a medical marijuana card on your behalf if you meet New York’s eligibility requirements. The first step in the process is to see your physician and see if medical marijuana is an option to help you and if you will be eligible to the requirements.
