Guidance for Law Enforcement Regarding the Medical Use of Marijuana
April 15, 2015
Chapter 369 of the Acts of 2012, An Act for the Humanitarian Medical Use of Marijuana, allows a qualifying patient to possess a 60-day supply of marijuana if the patient has a written certification from a Massachusetts licensed physician. The Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) was charged with issuing regulations to implement a medical use of marijuana program, which includes registration of qualifying patients, caregivers, dispensary agents, and defining a 60-day supply.
In October, 2014, DPH began issuing Program ID Cards to qualifying patients, caregivers, and dispensary agents (see below for images of sample Program ID Cards by registration type). These Program ID Cards can be used by law enforcement and Registered Marijuana Dispensaries (“RMD’s”) to confirm that a patient, caregiver, or dispensary agent is eligible to possess marijuana for medical use.
Who can possess marijuana for medical purposes?
Chapter 369 and the DPH regulations allow a registered patient, and their registered caregiver to possess a 60-day supply of marijuana with the certification of a Massachusetts licensed physician.
A dispensary agent may possess marijuana on behalf of the RMD that they are employed with. There is no limit to the amount of marijuana a dispensary agent can possess on behalf of an RMD. However, when transporting marijuana outside of an RMD to an approved location, the dispensary agent must have a transportation manifest showing the amount of marijuana to be transported and the location(s) that the dispensary agent is traveling to.
Approved locations to which a dispensary agent may transport marijuana on behalf of an RMD include:
a testing laboratory;
the primary residence of a registered patient or caregiver; and
a destruction/disposal site in compliance with DPH Medical Use of Marijuana
