California’s Medical Marijuana Card Program

Medical marijuana was first legalized in California in 1996 thanks to Proposition 215, also known as the Compassionate Use Act.

The act exempts all medical marijuana patients and their defined caregivers from laws prohibiting the possession and cultivation, provided they have a written recommendation to use cannabis from a doctor. It also protects practitioners who believe in the power of medical cannabis from being punished for recommending it as a treatment option for any debilitating illness

The infamous Senate Bill 420, also known as the Medical Marijuana Protection Act, establishing an identification card system for medical marijuana patients in 2003. California’s Medical Marijuana Identification Program is voluntary, and aims to further protect patients against cannabis prohibition laws by providing them access to state ID cards.

The fact that the program is mandatory and that patients do not require a medical marijuana card in San Diego and other counties in order to access medical cannabis makes many patients question the benefit of registering for a green card in the first place.

However, there are many benefits to having a medical cannabis card in San Diego. Here are a few of them:

  • Easy verification: A green card is an easy way to access medical cannabis and cannabis products through dispensaries and online delivery services such as
  • Extra protection: A medical marijuana card can be easily stored in your wallet or purse and offers you an extra layer of protection from the law. If you are approached by police for either medicating with or cultivating cannabis and you don’t happen to have your recommendation on you, a green card can protect you from the law at least until you get your hands on your recommendation.

Some patients have also expressed concerns about registering their information for fear of being prosecuted by the federal government. However, a variety of sources, including California NORML advise patients that “they will probably be safer from arrest if they enroll in the state ID program.”

The federal Drug Enforcement Agency has repeatedly said that it is not interested in pursuing individual patients and prosecuting them for using cannabis. Furthermore, the DEA could request access to the information collected through mandatory cannabis user registration systems (such as those in Oregon, Colorado, and Hawaii), yet it has subpoena patient/user records.

Plus, the state ID card system in California has safeguards to protect patient privacy. Patient names and addresses are not kept in the state's data base: the only information retained is a personal photo and ID number.
