Who Can Access Medical Marijuana In Louisiana?

To be eligible for Louisiana’s medical marijuana program, you need to be 21 years or older.

How Do You Get Medical Marijuana in Louisiana?

Louisiana doesn’t have a traditional medical cannabis card system, but the process for access is very similar to other states. It all starts with an appointment in an office or by telemedicine.

Authorized doctors, nurse practitioners, and medical psychologists can certify medical marijuana patients.

If the doctor believes that medical cannabis can benefit you, the doctor will certify your status and forward your confirmation to a licensed medical marijuana pharmacy of your choosing.

Because Louisiana does not provide medical marijuana identification cards, the authorized clinician is responsible for confirming your certification with the pharmacy. Once that process is complete, you will be able to visit the pharmacy and check in with your state ID.

What Are the Qualifying Conditions for Louisiana’s Medical Marijuana Program?

Louisiana regulations allow for authorized clinician to certify medical marijuana access for any condition that the clinician believes would be helped by cannabis.

No matter what condition you are looking to treat with medical cannabis, it is always advised to bring as much medical documentation of your condition as possible to assist your clinician’s determination.

These are examples of the most common qualifying conditions:

Alzheimer's disease Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Lou Gehrig's disease) Cachexia, or wasting syndrome Cancer Chronic pain associated with fibromyalgia or sickle cell disease Concussion Crohn's disease Epilepsy Glaucoma HIV/AIDS Hospice or palliative care Huntington's disease Intractable pain Lewy-body dementia Motor-neuron disease Multiple sclerosis Muscular dystrophy Parkinson's disease Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) Seizure disorders Severe muscle spasms Spastic quadriplegia Spasticity Spinal muscular atrophy Traumatic brain injury
