Medical Card

The City of Colorado Springs is entirely medical marijuana and does not allow recreational purchases. Luckily, there is a straightforward path to obtaining your medical card if you suffer from any of the following conditions (or those deemed appropriate from a qualified medical professional):

  • Cachexia, or wasting syndrome (severe weight loss caused by a medical condition or its treatment)
  • Cancer
  • Glaucoma
  • HIV or AIDS
  • Persistent muscle spasms
  • Seizures
  • Severe nausea
  • Severe pain
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

How to Get Your Card

The Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment has released a 4-step process to obtaining your card, and you can find the full instructions here. The steps are as follows:

  1. See your healthcare provider
  2. Complete your application online
  3. Wait for application review
  4. Print or display your card

Restrictions

The only restrictions on obtaining a medical card are that you must be 18 years or older and a Colorado resident. The application requires a valid driver’s license or ID, as well as a valid social security number.
