Interested in getting your Montana Medical Marijuana Card?

Follow these 3 easy steps:

Step 1

Make an appointment with a certified physician.

We can help you find a Montana physician that is knowledgeable about the Medical Marijuana program. The average cost for one of these doctor visits is $160. You may be asked to bring medical records that attest you have one or more of the qualifying conditions as described in the State of Montana medical marijuana regulations. See conditions list below.  

Find doctors we recommend here.

Step 2

Register through the Trans Action Portal (TAP) with the State of Montana.

A doctor that has certified you to use medical marijuana will give you a 3-4 page
physician statement, which needs to be registered with the State and uploaded to its TAP portal (see URL below.) We can help with this. Please note, if you’d like help from our staff with this step you must come into the store before 6:30pm. You will need a current Montana-issued ID, driver’s license, or tribal ID, and a photo. The fee to register is $22/year. 
To register, visit and scroll down to the Cannabis Control section and click “Apply for or manage a Medical Marijuana Card” to follow the steps and submit your application.

Step 3

Print your temporary card.

Once you’ve submitted your application on TAP, you will need to print your
temporary MMJ card. You can do this immediately after submitting your application. You can use your temporary card to purchase cannabis at registered dispensaries in Montana.

Process Complete!
Bring your patient registration card and valid Montana identification card or US Passport to your dispensary.
Your new temporary MMJ card along with a valid Montana ID can be used to purchase cannabis products at registered dispensaries in Montana. You will receive your official MMJ card in the mail. Your card is valid for one year. Tamarack offers a 5% back rewards program and you can order online.
