Medical Marijuana Identification Card (MMIC)

From the California Department of Public Health

The California Department of Public Health’s (CDPH) Medical Marijuana Identification Card Program (MMICP) was established to create a state-authorized medical marijuana identification card (MMIC), along with a registry database for verification of qualified patients and their primary caregivers. Participation by patients and primary caregivers in this MMICP is voluntary. The MMICP web-based registry allows law enforcement and the public to verify the validity of a qualified patient or primary caregiver’s MMICP as authorization to possess, grow, transport, and/or use medical marijuana within California.

On January 21, 2021, Governor Newsom issued another executive order Executive Order N-01-21 (PDF), affecting the expiration date of Medical Marijuana Identification Cards (MMIC) issued under Health and Safety Code section 11362.71, which concerns current MMIC cardholders and their designated primary caregivers.

Pursuant to this executive order, MMICs that would otherwise have expired on or after March 4, 2020 shall be valid until this Order is modified or rescinded, or until the State of Emergency is terminated, whichever occurs sooner.

Effective January 1, 2018 we will be serving recreational customers.  All customers must have proof of age of 21 or older.  Customers may now reside outside of California.

As of January 1, 2018 new taxes will be charged by the City of San Diego and the State of California.  Click here for more information. Notice of Sales Tax (English and Spanish)

Medical Marijuana Identification Card (MMIC)

Only customers with California State issued Medical Marijuana Identification Cards will be allowed to purchase products containing over 100mg of cannabis. Your current local rec card issued from a local physician does not qualify.  There are also tax benefits to obtaining an MMIC.  See Notice of Sales Tax above.
