This is to inform you of two new processes that involve Nevada patients and medical marijuana cards.
NO MORE DMV
Patients no longer need to visit the DMV for card processing. The Division and the DMV interfaced data systems so that patients’ cards will be mailed to them automatically. The MMP has a system in place to accommodate patients who currently have letters of approval, but who have not yet visited the DMV under the old rules. Patients with approval letters dated June 1, 2016 or later will get their cards in the mail. Patients with an approval letter dated May 31, 2016 or earlier will be contacted by the Division.
ONLINE PATIENT REGISTRATION AND PAYMENT
Applying, paying for and getting a medical marijuana approval is now available by using the MMP’s Online Registry.
From the Registry homepage (go to http://dpbh.nv.gov and click to the Medical Marijuana Registry), patients can create their own accounts, scan in their driver’s license, and download and print their application. Patients are still required to secure a physician recommendation and sign the waiver and acknowledgment in the presence of a Notary Public. This process requires internet access, a computer, printer and scanner.
When all pages of the application are complete, applicants can scan and upload them directly to the MMP portal for approval. Letters of approval may be provided in as little as 24 hours. Patients may print the letter for use in dispensaries until their card arrives in the mail (see above).
