Sixth Step (Finalize, Submit, Access Dispensaries )

How do I finalize my registration application and access medical marijuana dispensaries?

Answer

Review and Submit Application: Check that all information you have submitted is correct before submission. Once you’re ready, submit your patient registration application to the Department. The Department will review your application in the order it was received. You will be notified via e-mail from DPHOnlineSystem (DPH) <dphonlinesystem@state.ma.us> whether your application was accepted or denied. If your application is denied, your e-mail message will tell you what the issue is and how you can log back into the Virtual Gateway to fix the information before submitting the application again.

When the Department approves your registration application you may log back in your Virtual Gateway account, select Medical Use of Marijuana System, and print your temporary program ID card by clicking the "Print Temporary Program ID card" link on the homepage. Your temporary program ID card acts as your card until your official card arrives in the mail. You may use your temporary program ID card to enter Registered Marijuana Dispensaries and possess a 60-day supply of medicine at any time.
