The Vermont Marijuana Registry (VMR) is a program located within the Department of Public Safety whose purpose is to implement the provisions of 18 V.S.A. Chapter 86, Therapeutic Use of Cannabis, as they pertain to registered patients, caregivers, and the creation and operation of four dispensaries. The VMR’s primary purpose is to assist individuals applying for a registry identification card and oversee the operations of the four registered dispensaries in Vermont that provide marijuana for symptom relief to registered patients.
Vermont Marijuana Registry Forms:
Registered Patient Application Form: New patients must complete this form to register. Patients renewing their registry card must also complete this form annually. There is a $50 fee to register or to renew. To become a registered patient, a person must be diagnosed with a debilitating medical condition by a health care professional in the course of a bona fide health care professional-patient relationship. A registered patient must be a resident of Vermont. “Resident of Vermont” means a person whose domicile is Vermont.
Health Care Verification Form: A health care provider must verify that their patient has a “debilitating medical condition” to qualify them for the Vermont Marijuana Registry. This form must be completed by a health care provider for all new applications, and each year when a patient renews.
Caregiver Form: A person must complete this form to become a caregiver for a registered patient. A caregiver must be at least 21 years old. A registered caregiver may only serve one patient at a time. A caregiver may visit a dispensary and purchase medical marijuana for their registered patient. A caregiver may also cultivate marijuana for their registered patient.
Change of Information Form: Patients who want to change their name, contact information, procurement selection, or replace their registry identification card should complete this form.
