The Arizona Department of Health Services announced today that it will be switching to a digital identification system for medical marijuana cardholders. Current patients should update their information with ADHS as soon as possible to take advantage of the new system. The ADHS issued the following instructions for updating your information:
To better serve the State of Arizona, the Department of Health Services is modernizing its technology systems. As of December 1st, 2019, you will have digital access to your medical marijuana card.
Access to your digital cards will be sent to the primary email address provided when you completed your initial application or last renewal. It is important that your email address is unique to you and not shared between multiple parties.
The State asks that you follow these 3-easy steps to ensure your email is up to date.
1) Visit the Arizona Department of Health Services Medical Marijuana Online Registry, select “Applications” from the left toolbar and then “Application Update (Email and Phone Number Only –No Fee)” (or go to https://medicalmarijuana.azdhs.gov/MyProfile.aspx)
2) Fill in the required information and select “Validate” on the bottom left-hand corner
3) Complete the required fields to ensure your email address is current and select, “Update”
If your email is not updated prior to December 1st, 2019 you can still use your physical medical marijuana card. If you file any type of application after December 1st, 2019 (including a Lost/Stolen application, Change application, or Renewal application), you will be issued a digital card and your physical card will no longer be a valid form of identification related to your access to medical marijuana in Arizona.
If you have questions about updating your email address, please feel free to contact us by email or phone.
