Medical Marijuana Identification Card

The California Department of Public Health’s Medical Marijuana Identification Card Program (MMICP) was established to create a state authorized Medical Marijuana Identification Card (MMIC), along with a web-based system for verification of MMICs issued. The MMICP web-based verification system allows law enforcement and the public to verify the validity of a qualified patient or primary caregiver's MMIC as approved to possess, grow, transport, and/or use medical marijuana within California.

Each MMIC is assigned a nine-digit Unique User Identification Number (UUID Number). By entering a UUID Number below, you may verify the validity of an MMIC. An MMIC is considered VALID if the UUID Number was assigned to an individual and the card is active. An MMIC is considered INVALID if the UUID Number was not assigned to an individual or the card is expired. MMICP does not receive or retain any personally identifiable information.

Important Alert:
On January 21, 2021, Governor Newsom issued another executive order Executive Order N-01-21 (PDF), affecting the expiration date of Medical Marijuana Identification Cards (MMIC) issued under Health and Safety Code section 11362.71, which concerns current MMIC cardholders and their designated primary caregivers. Pursuant to this executive order, MMICs that would otherwise have expired on or after March 4, 2020 shall be valid until this Order is modified or rescinded, or until the State of Emergency is terminated, whichever occurs sooner.
