How Much Does the North Carolina Medical Marijuana Card Cost?

While North Carolina has a limited medical marijuana program, it does not issue medical marijuana cards. However, the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians (EBCI) has a fully operational medical cannabis program implemented on the tribe’s trust lands located in the state. The EBCI allows all North Carolina residents to apply for, and join, its medical marijuana program through its Cannabis Control Board (CCB). The CCB only offers MMJ cards for patients aged 21 years or older.

Cost of Physician Consultation

The EBCI medical marijuana program in North Carolina does not require patients to seek medical cannabis recommendations from medical providers. However, a patient applying for an EBCI CCB medical cannabis card must provide a completed medical diagnosis attestation form from their doctor or other medical practitioner. This form must confirm that the patient was diagnosed with one of the qualifying conditions recognized under the EBCI medical cannabis program. Patients may expect their physicians to charge for appointments made to complete or sign their attestation forms. The cost of such consultation may vary from free to over $300.

North Carolina Medical Marijuana Card Fee

The EBCI patient medical cannabis card costs $100 for North Carolina residents and $50 for enrolled members of the EBCI. This card is valid for one year and must be renewed annually. The renewal fee for North Carolina residents is $100 but $25 for enrolled EBCI members.
