Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 8 months ago.

medical marijuana laws vary from state to state

we can't give you a card here

but I can post internet links if you are in a state where it is legal

to download forms

most states need you to take forms filled out to a center to apply in person

Expert:  Dr. David replied 8 months ago.

for new jersey, you have to find a medical marijuana doctor here

http://nj.gov/health/medicalmarijuana/patients/find-doctor/

there are only about 10 diagnosis in NJ where a doctor can give you an electronic prescription

Lou Gehrig's disease (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS) Multiple sclerosis Terminal cancer Muscular dystrophy Inflammatory bowel disease (IBS) Crohn’s disease Terminal illness if the physician has determined a prognosis of less than 12 months of life Seizure disorder, including epilepsy Intractable skeletal muscular spasticity Glaucoma HIV/AIDS

you have to find a doctor on the list and if you have one of these conditions, that doctor can register you in the system,

then you have to apply online, pay a fee, upload a face photo, photo of a utility bill, state drivers license

and then you get the card in the mail.
