Maine Medical Marijuana Card
Maine Medical Marijuana law established the Maine Patient Registry, a voluntary registry identification program. In addition, out of state medical marijuana register cards, are accepted in Maine.
* The Maine Marijuana Registry is voluntary.

“In addition to either a registry ID card or a physician certification form, all patients, including both non-registered and voluntarily registered patients, must also present their Maine driver license or other Maine-issued photo identification card to law enforcement, upon request.” Program Bulletin, [Accessed September 28, 2011]
* Out of State’s registry cards are accepted in Maine.

“Law enforcement will accept appropriate authorization from a participating state, but that patient cannot purchase marijuana in Maine without registering here. That requires a Maine physician and a Maine driver license or other picture ID issued by the state of Maine. The letter from a physician in another state is only good for 30 days.” Maine’s Division of Licensing and Regulatory Stories — Email received August 19, 2010.

The Maine Patient Registry fee is $0 for patients. For caregivers however, the fee is $300 per patient, with a limit of five patients — however, if the caregiver is not growing, the fee is waived.
