Visit Your Doctor
The first step in becoming a registered medical marijuana patient in Massachusetts is to get a doctor’s certification.
1. Schedule a visit. Your family doctor or a specialist is a good place to start. Be straightforward. Explain why you feel medical marijuana can be helpful and ask if he or she is willing to certify you. It should be no different than discussing other potential treatment options with your doctor.
2. If your doctor can’t certify you, you can search on our map to find local doctors that specialize in and understand medical marijuana treatments.
3. Once you receive your certification, it can last up to 1 year or you may only be certified for a shorter period. Be sure to keep tabs on expiration dates.
4. Once you are certified, it’s time to register with the state’s Medical Use Of Marijuana Online System. Click here for step-by-step registration instructions.

Is there a line?

No / Little Line
PATIENTS You won't have to wait in line. Just come on in! ADULT USE Now Open! Lines are significantly shorter compared to opening week. In fact, for several hours on most weekdays, there is no line outside at all. Consider using our Reserve Ahead web app (NETACARE.ORG/RESERVEAHEAD) - most of the time there is little to no line outside for Reserve Ahead pickup orders.
