Other Healthcare Providers
If you are a licensed Maryland NP, DMD, DPM, or CNM you will soon be able to recommend medical cannabis to your patients with debilitating conditions
Physicians are not the only medical professionals who can recommend cannabis in Maryland. In May of 2016, a law was enacted to authorize dentists, podiatrists, nurse midwives and nurse practitioners to issue written certifications for medical cannabis. However, the law has a delayed effective date of June 1, 2017, so until then only physicians can register with the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission. The Commission will likely have a similar registration process for the additional authorized providers on its website when we get closer to the June 1, 2017, date.
