The Medical Marijuana Use Registry is a database collected by the government containing information about licensed medical marijuana patients. Licensed dispensaries use the database to verify a patient’s or caregiver’s legal status before shipping medical marijuana to a location. This step ensures that only people legally approved to receive medical marijuana are allowed to do so.
Requirements to apply as a medical marijuana patient.

- Be a permanent resident of Mississippi.

The Medical Marijuana Use Registry is a way for patients to register with the state using their Mississippi identification card number so that they can purchase medical marijuana from a licensed dispensary. When you register, you will receive a card that says you are legally allowed to buy medical marijuana from a dispensary.
