Louisiana State Process for Getting
Your Medical Marijuana Card

  1. Once a doctor on the Heally platform approves you, you can sit back and relax while we take care of everything! Louisiana does not offer a physical medical marijuana card so there’s no state paperwork. Instead, your name will be added to the statewide medical cannabis patient registry by your Heally Physician.
  2. Heally will fax your doctor’s certificate to your pharmacy of choice. There are currently nine licensed pharmacies in the state of Louisiana. If you want to change your pharmacy at any time please contact us at support@getheally.com.
  3. You can find a list of pharmacies here.
  4. As soon as the pharmacy receives your certificate from us, you can legally purchase medical marijuana products there*. Ensure you bring a valid form of photo identification, such as a driver’s license, with you to the pharmacy.

Please note: Since the legalization of marijuana in raw or crude form (i.e. flower) in January of 2022, pharmacies are experiencing a heavy volume of new patients. This has resulted in processing delays.

Not sure if you qualify? Don't worry, if the doctor does
not approve you, you will get your money back.

Louisiana Marijuana Legalization

In 2015, Louisiana’s Governor Jindal signed a bill to legalize medical marijuana. It was put into effect four years later in mid-2019. However, when medical marijuana was first sold in Louisiana it was very difficult to access. In 2020, Governor Edwards signed a bill to increase access to patients who qualify for medical marijuana cards in Louisiana.

As of today, the recreational use of marijuana is still illegal. However, in 2021, it was decriminalized and anyone in possession of fewer than 14 grams of cannabis can only be fined up to $100. At the start of 2022, Governor Edwards enacted a bill to allow smokable flowers for medical marijuana patients. Today, individuals who qualify for medical cards in LA can obtain cannabis in this form as well as oils and tinctures. In contrast with other states, Louisiana remains to have some of the more unyielding regulations in regards to the use and possession of marijuana.
