Renew your MMJ card in Maryland

Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission (MMCC).
A written certification for the use of medical cannabis must be obtained in order to renew an MMJ card, and one must visit a licensed healthcare provider. The patient then delivers the certification, the renewal application, and any other required paperwork to the MMCC. The MMCC will review the application and, if approved, issue a renewed MMJ card.
Patients can renew their cards in Maryland as long as they are still eligible for medical cannabis treatment. Patients must have a valid certification from a licensed healthcare provider and meet all other requirements set forth by the MMCC.
It's worth noting that if a patient's certification expires before their MMJ card, the patient must obtain a new certificate from their healthcare provider before they can renew their MMJ card.
Overall, patients who meet the prerequisites and possess a current certification from a healthcare professional are eligible to renew their cards for cannabis use in Maryland.
