Medical Marijuana Program

Title 22 of the District of Columbia Municipal Regulations (DCMR) adds a new Subtitle C entitled “Medical Marijuana.”

These regulations set forth the process and procedure that qualifying patients, caregivers, and physicians must follow before any individual may become registered to obtain and use medical marijuana.  Likewise, they set forth process and procedure that candidates for registration as dispensaries or cultivation centers must follow to apply for such registrations, and the operating requirements they will need to perform upon a receiving a registration for such a facility.  The regulations set forth the provisions of the Act that must be addressed at the onset to enable the Department to administer the program.

These proposed rules do not deal with all aspects of the Act, but rather are focused on dealing with those issues that must be addressed at the beginning of the implementation of the Act.  Comments for this rulemaking should address its specific provisions.

All questions regarding the Medical Marijuana Program must be submitted in writing.  Phone calls will not be accepted.
