Medical Marijuana Patients Allowed to Use Approval Email As Substitute Card

Michigan medical marijuana patients who apply for their registry cards online may now use their approval email as a substitute for a registry card.

The marijuana regulatory agency says the email is valid only until patients receive their card in the mail, or up to 10 days from the date of the approval email.

It will make sure patients with medical conditions can quickly get their medical marijuana.

The executive director says a process that used to take several weeks now can be done in a single day.
