Are you the primary caregiver for a loved one who would like to use medical marijuana to address their health concerns? Applying for a medical marijuana patient caregiver card may be the right option for you.

Why should I apply to be a medical marijuana patient caregiver? 

There are many different reasons why a medical marijuana patient may not be able to visit a dispensary on their own. They may be a minor, disabled, hospitalized, etc. Regardless of the reason, as a designated caregiver for them, you have the legal right to possess, purchase, and transport cannabis products for use by a qualified patient. Similar to that of a patient I.D. card, a caregiver card allows you access to medical marijuana dispensaries and their products for shopping the various solutions that can address your loved one's needs. 

Who qualifies as a primary caregiver?

According to the Missouri Department of Health & Senior Services, the term "Primary Caregiver" is defined as an individual 21 years of age or older who has significant responsibility for managing the well-being of a qualifying patient.

What are the steps to apply?

When a qualified medical marijuana patient wishes to name you as their primary caregiver, the process is relatively simple: 


Please note: The patient will receive this number upon approval of their application, and will begin with "PAT." 

  • After registering, you can complete an application by logging into the Complia portal. Upon login, click on “Create Application” and “New Caregiver Registration”.

Please note: There is a $25 fee to submit the application.
