Persons with a medical marijuana card from any US state may purchase at Takoma Wellness Center. Just bring your valid medical marijuana card and a government issued photo ID

Medical Marijuana is now available for ANY CONDITION to Washington DC residents.
The decision to use medical marijuana is between a patient and physician, like any other medication.

Step 1: Do you live in D.C.?

In order to get your medical marijuana card, you'll need to prove that you have current residency in the District. This is because medical marijuana is legal in Washington D.C., but not in surrounding areas. 

Two documents that show your current DC address: 

  • Driver's license (if it has your current address) District I.D.
  • Current, unexpired Motor Vehicle Registration
  • Voters Registration
  • Utility Bill (not phone) within the last 60 Days
  • Current Paystub that shows Address, DC Withholding
  • A Signed Lease/Deed with your Name, DC Address, and Date
Step 2: Getting a Healthcare Provider Recommendation

The decision to use medical marijuana is between a patient and healthcare provider, like any other medication.

Your next step is to obtain a healthcare provider’s recommendation (any DC licensed physician, nurse practitioner, physician’s assistant, naturopath or dentist can write a recommendation for medical marijuana).

 

Make your appointment today, so you can get the ball rolling! If your healthcare provider hasn't issued a medical marijuana recommendation before, he/she can sign up for the program by clicking here. (If your healthcare provider will not write a recommendation, or you don’t feel comfortable asking your healthcare provider contact Takoma Wellness Center and we will give you a list of a healthcare provider who has written recommendations in the past and are willing to see new patients).
