Your medical marijuana card must be current in order to make purchases at the dispensary. If your card has expired or will expire soon, we recommend applying for a new card as soon as possible.
The process for renewing your card is very similar to the process you followed previously. You will need the following items:
- Current photo ID
- Updated doctor recommendation
- New photo for your patient ID card
- Updated proof of SNAP eligibility (if applying for low-income registration)
- Updated Patient Attestation Form (available here)
The application fee for renewing your card will remain the same, unless there has been a change in your eligibility for low-income registration. The rate is $150, with a 50% discount for participants in the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program. Some recommending physicians offer discounted rates for renewing patients, which may help to reduce your cost.
If you have adesignated caregiver, their card will automatically expire on the same date as yours and they will need to submit an updated application as well. The cost of a caregiver renewal is $200. The caregiver renewal application is available here. Please note that your caregiver will need to submit fingerprints by mail to the Department of Health Services as part of their application.

Once you’ve obtained your updated doctor recommendation and prepared your documents, you may submit your new application through the Department of Health Services website by clicking here.
