The current processing time for a medical marijuana application is 10-14 days from the time the Medical Marijuana Use Registry receives it. They send you an approval email at that time. Your approval email can be used in the dispensaries as a temporary card until your actual card arrives in the mail. If you are submitting it by mail, please allow an additional 3-5 days for delivery of your application. Submitting an incomplete application will increase the amount of time required to process your account.
