Recommending Cannabis in Minnesota
The ability to recommend medical cannabis in Minnesota rest with "health care practitioners," who are defined as doctor, physician's assistant, or advanced practicing nurse who is licensed to practice in the state. The recommending health care practitioner must have primary responsibility for the care and treatment of the qualifying medical condition that the patient is being recommending medical cannabis to treat. Health care practitioners may participate in the state's registry program to collect data on patient outcomes. The Commissioner of DOH is responsible for providing notice to health care providers about the existence of the program and to provide understanding about therapeutic use of medical cannabis within the program.
Physicians must register with the Department of Health. To enroll in the DOH Medical Cannabis Registry, physicians need to provide the following:
- General information: name, address, email and phone.
- Your medical license.
- Your DEA license.
- General information about the clinic(s) where you practice.
