Applying for a medical cannabis card in Michigan just got a lot faster and easier thanks to the state’s new online medical portal, Michigan Live reports.
According to regulators, the new site will allow officials to issue medical cards much faster. An applicant may even be able to get their card in as few as two or three days following physician approval.
Before now, applicants had to apply via paper forms and the U.S. Mail — and renew via the same method.
“We are pleased to be able to make these services available online. It’s a small but significant step in making access to government services easier for Michigan residents. Our new online capabilities deliver services where and when and at the times our constituents need them.” — Orlene Hawks, Director of the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, in a statement
The new online registration services also work for doctors who are seeking to register with the Michigan system in order to issue medical cannabis cards. This will allow more doctors to be approved for the program as well, even further speeding up the process for patients.
The new features can be accessed on Michigan.gov.
