- Do You Need a Medical Marijuana Card Renewal Doctor in Virginia?
YES. Mandated by the Virginia Board of Pharmacy, the process of renewing your medical marijuana certificate involves updating your medical information, confirming your eligibility with an authorized medical provider, and paying the renewal fee. While you don’t necessarily need to visit a doctor in person, you do need a certifying physician’s recommendation for your renewal. This can quickly be done online with ReThink-Rx.
- State Renewal Optional
In July 2023, the Board of Pharmacy removed the requirement to register with them and get a state MMJ card. Some patients may still want to renew their state registry, however. The Virginia Board of Pharmacy has implemented an online renewal system that streamlines the process, making it easier for patients to maintain their registry as medical marijuana patients. Here’s how you can renew your state MMJ card online:
a. Access the Online Renewal Portal: Visit the official website provided by the Virginia Board of Pharmacy, which is responsible for administrating the state’s Medical Cannabis Program. On this website, you’ll find a dedicated online portal for card renewals.
b. Log In: You must log in using your existing credentials. This will include your patient ID and password, which were provided to you when you initially registered for the program. If you’ve forgotten your login information, the website should provide options for account recovery.
c. Complete the Renewal Application: Once logged in, complete the renewal application. This may include providing updated information about your medical condition, treatment plan, and any changes to your contact information.
d. Pay the Renewal Fee: There is a renewal fee of $50 associated with renewing your medical marijuana card with the state. The payment process should be straightforward, allowing you to pay online securely.
e. Await Approval: After submitting your renewal application and payment, you must wait for approval from the Virginia Board of Pharmacy. Once approved, you’ll receive your renewed medical marijuana card by mail.
