Medical Cannabis Authorization Form

Authorization Form

To be a Washington state medical cannabis patient, you must be a resident of the state under the care of a health care practitioner for your qualifying medical condition and provided a Medical Cannabis Authorization Form from your health care practitioner allowed to authorize cannabis for medical purposes.

Authorization form requirements

All authorizations must be completed and signed by the patient's health care practitioner. The form must be printed on 8.5 x 11 inch authorization tamper-resistant paper as defined in RCW 69.51A.010.

Important note: Authorization forms printed on tamper-resistant paper containing the Pharmacy Commission seal are not valid and will prevent a patient from being entered into the Medical Cannabis Authorization Database.
