Since 2015, Minnesota physicians have been able to certify that their patients have a condition that qualifies them to take part in the state’s medical cannabis program. More information about the program, and what conditions qualify can be found on the Minnesota Department of Health - Medical Cannabis Program page. 

Information on this page is for helping Minnesota physicians understand the law and providing them with useful resources so they can provide the best care to their patients.
