Get a Medical Marijuana Card in Georgia
Getting a medical marijuana card in Georgia is easy through the medical marijuana certification process provided by Synergy Health.
To get a medical marijuana card in Georgia, you must have a doctor’s medical marijuana recommendation, which can only be provided to you by a registered doctor following an in-person medical examination.
Therefore, the first step to obtaining your medical marijuana recommendation in Georgia is visiting Synergy Health’s Georgia-based, registered doctor, Dr. Carla Neal-Haley of Genesis Healthcare Associates (in Smyrna, Georgia) for a medical examination to ensure you meet the state’s qualifications for a medical marijuana card.
If you qualify, your information will be uploaded to the Georgia Department of Public Health web portal by the end of the day. Patients are generally notified, via phone, within 3 -5 business days of where to pick up their card, usually the closest County Department of Health. There is a $25.00 fee for the card levied by the Department of Vital Records.
The entire process is both HIPAA and ASA compliant, so you can be confident that your personal information is secure and the medical marijuana recommendation is legal. Once you receive your medical marijuana card you can use it to purchase medical marijuana in Georgia. Synergy Health is available 24/7 to provide immediate verification of the card’s validity via phone or online.
Georgia law only allows patients with medical marijuana cards to possess low-THC cannabis oil. Unfortunately, current laws state that purchasing medical marijuana within the state is still illegal, but having your card will help you purchase medical marijuana in states that accept them from other states through reciprocity laws. While it is illegal to bring marijuana across state lines, you could use medical marijuana in other states that allow it.
In addition, as medical marijuana laws open up in the future, having your medical marijuana card will enable you to immediately purchase approved cannabis products as they become available.
The fee to obtain your Georgia medical marijuana card through Synergy Health is $200 for the initial medical assessment, which includes a medical examination, a records review, documentation, and registration with the state. The fee for return visits is $49 per visit, and yearly recertification (as required by law) is $129 per year.
