What medical documentation should I fax?

Our physicians require that each patient have current medical records within past 3 years that document the existence of one of the conditions for which medical marijuana is authorized under Arizona state law. You must either obtain your medical records yourself (which may involve a fee) and mail or fax them in to us, or you may authorize that your medical records be faxed or mailed to our office. AZMMCC requires the records to be current within the past three years and relate to your qualifying condition. Documentation is required for at least two (2) of your most recent visits pertaining to your qualifying condition for your medical marijuana application.

How do I register as a medical marijuana patient with the state?

A qualifying patient would have to submit a signed written certification issued by the physician that stated that in the physician’s professional opinion the patient would likely receive therapeutic or symptom-relieving benefits from the medical use of marijuana to treat or alleviate a debilitating medical condition. The certification would have to specify the debilitating medical condition and be made in the course of a physician-patient relationship after the physician had completed a full assessment of the patient’s medical history. If the qualifying patient were under 18 years of age, the patient’s custodial parent or legal guardian would have to submit written certifications from two physicians, and the custodial parent or legal guardian would have to consent in writing to control the patient’s medical use of the marijuana.
