Step 1. Schedule an appointment with a physician who will recommend cannabis as a medical treatment for your condition. You can get a signed form from ANY physician but most patients choose to seek out a clinic that specializes in cannabis recommendations.
Step 2. Select a Montana Marijuana Provider on your cardholder application form which can be downloaded here --> https://dphhs.mt.gov/Portals/85/marijuana/MMPRegisteredCardholderApplication.pdf
Step 3. Send in your application, documents and payment to the DPHHS office in Helena.
Step 4. Wait for your card in the mail.
Your Montana MMJ card is valid for 12 months. We recommend beginning the renewal process 45 days before the expiry date. Depending on the provider, you could get lucky and find one that pre-screens you before you apply to ensure eligibility. Here are a few other things to note:
-The possession limit is one ounce of flower. You can also have eight grams of concentrate, or 800mg of THC in edibles, or 8ml worth of vape cartridges.
-Montana does not have a reciprocity program with any other state at present.
-Minors can apply by completing a different form. The minor’s parent or guardian must also register and receive approval as a Marijuana-Infused Products Provider (MIPP).
-Alternatively, this adult can name a provider on the minor’s behalf. If convicted of DUI during the period your MMJ card is valid, and your driver’s license is revoked, you must also surrender your card. You must complete the DUI revocation period before you can have your card reissued.
-Individuals under the supervision of the Department of Corrections (or a youth court if a minor) are not eligible to receive an MMJ card in Montana.
Renewing your medical card with Complia is easy! But before you get started you are going to want to make sure that you have a new recommendation from your doctor, a smart phone with a camera and a debit or credit card.
STEP 1. Go to https://mt-public.mycomplia.com and log in with your email and password. Then click on "Create Application".
STEP 2. Under “Application Type” select “Patient Renewal”. Then click “Create Application”.
STEP 3. Enter your current card number. Click “Save”. Then click “Save and Next”.
STEP 4. Complia should auto populate your information saved from last year. Please click through each page and review the information. Make sure that your contact, physician, and provider information is all correct.
STEP 5. This is where you will need that camera. On the documents you are going to upload photos of your driver’s license, your proof of residency (a piece of mail addressed to you in MT), a selfie in front of a white background (no hats, no smiling), and photos of your physician statement (upload a photo of all pages of the physician statement). Click “Save & Next”.
STEP 6. Review your information one last time. If you see a red “X” you will need to navigate back and update that information. Once you only have green checkmarks click “Pay & Submit”(see below).
STEP 7. Finally Complia will kick you over to the payment processing site. The Montana State’s registration fee is $31.85 for renewing cardholders.
Congratulations! Your renewed card should arrive in the mail in two to four weeks. If you don’t see it in that timeframe please call the DPHHS at (406) 444-0596.
