Medical Marijuana Identification Card Services
On January 21, 2021, Governor Newsom issued another executive order Executive Order N-01-21 (PDF), affecting the expiration date of Medical Marijuana Identification Cards (MMIC) issued under Health and Safety Code section 11362.71, which concerns current MMIC cardholders and their designated primary caregivers.
Pursuant to this executive order, MMICs that would otherwise have expired on or after March 4, 2020 shall be valid until this Order is modified or rescinded, or until the State of Emergency is terminated, whichever occurs sooner.
Under California law, it is legal for adults 21 or older to possess, consume and cultivate cannabis. You can also use cannabis if you are 18 or older and have a current qualifying physician’s recommendation or a valid county-issued Medical Marijuana Identification Card (MMIC).
