Medical Marijuana Doctors in Iowa
How To Qualify for Medical Marijuana Card in Iowa
The Iowa Medical Department of Health is tasked with implementing the regulations and provisions of Iowa's medical marijuana program which permits state-licensed physicians to recommend marijuana for medical purposes to patients with serious illnesses and medical conditions as identified by the Iowa State Medical Association.
Iowa Marijuana Card makes it easy for qualifying patients to access medical marijuana across the state of Iowa. We plan on opening offices conveniently located throughout Iowa, so patients won't need to spend hours driving just to find a compassionate doctor. At every Iowa Marijuana Card office, you'll find Iowa medical marijuana doctors able to determine if medical marijuana is right for you based on your medical condition(s), plus an extraordinarily helpful and friendly staff that will make the application and approval process simple and stress-free!
To qualify for an Iowa Marijuana Card, a patient must be diagnosed by a licensed Iowa Doctor with one of the numerous qualifying conditions specified within Iowa's medical marijuana law.
Des Moines Marijuana Card Office
Iowa Marijuana Card will be opening a medical marijuana doctor office in Des Moines very soon. It is anticipated that Iowa Marijuana Doctors will be legally allowed to issue Physician Certifications for medical marijuana once the Department of Health has finalized the forms and processes to register Patients who have received a Physician Certification:
1. Patients would not be able to legally purchase their medication anywhere at this time, as dispensaries have not yet opened.
2. The Iowa Department of Health isn’t yet issuing patient identification cards. Without a patient identification, the doctor’s recommendation only provides with you an affirmative defense in court.

After obtaining a medical marijuana card, patients will need to find an Iowa dispensary to purchase marijuana from. There is currently only one dispensary operational in Iowa: MedPharm in Windsor.
