- To Be At Least 21 Years Old
Find A Patient
-There is no form that a person need to fill out and send to the state to qualify as a caregiver other than a patients doctor recommendation.
-You need a patient with a legal qualifying condition to go to the doctor and get a signed recommendation.
-On that paperwork is a couple areas that the applying caregiver has to fill out. You will need to be at least 21 years old and have no drug felonies on your record to become a legal caregiver in Michigan.
-There are places to go to to find patients that are looking for caregivers.
Sign The Patient’s Paperwork.
It’s pretty straight forward. Just fill in the information.
Copy Your Drivers License
-The patient will need a copy of your drivers license to send to the Michigan State Health Dept.
Get A Copy of the Patient’s Medical MarijuanaApplication
-Make sure to get a copy of the patients application, money order receipt and certified mail receipt. Make sure your patient sends his information by way of certified mail. That way you have proof exactly when your patient sent in his application.
Start growing marijuana for your patient as soon as you receive your caregiver card in the mail.
Some other helpful info…
20 days after a person submits a valid application, by operation of the law, their application is deemed granted. Having a copy of the application has the same significance as having a card from the state.
If 20 days hasn’t yet passed, patients and caregivers are still protected from arrest and temporary seizure of their medical marijuana. The affirmative defense of anyone who is prosecuted means that patients or caregivers can go to court and prove that a physician has signed off and that creates a presumption of being a qualified patient/caregiver protected by the act.
