HOW TO - a Guideline for Completing the Application for Registration in the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program.

Step (1) Get Forms from the OHD (among other sources) and begin the process of Applying. Get and fill out the Application for Registration in the Oregon Medical Marijuana Act Program. The OMMP sometimes has packets at the front desk (Oregon Health Division, 800 NE Oregon St., Portland, OR 97232) Or, call (971) 673-1234 and ask a representative of the Oregon Health Division for an OMMA application packet - or - write to OHD, P.O. Box 14450, Portland, OR 97293-0450 and they'll send you one. Or visit their website:   http://oregon.gov/DHS/ph/ommp/index.cfm   … and download forms from there.

NOTE: You must have a qualifying debilitating medical condition as listed on the Attending Physician's Statement. Debilitating Medical Condition: your physician Checks the appropriate boxes on the ATTENDING PHYSICIAN’S STATEMENT (see form )

1. Malignant neoplasm (Cancer)
2. Glaucoma
3. Positive status for Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) or Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS)
4. Agitation due to Alzheimer’s Disease

(b) If a person over the age of 18 provides assistance to you, and you would like for that person to also receive a registration card, please complete Part B of the form, and provide a copy of photo i.d. of the primary caregiver.

My illness makes me not keep or gain weight if I am in a cycle or flare up. I am currently. I hate posting things in public and asking for help. But I really need it not just for me but to take care of my boys. If anyone knows of someone that's looking for a new patient I would greatly appreciate the help in finding someone solid.

• If you choose to list a primary caregiver, that person must provide a copy of his or her current Oregon photo ID, as well as his or her date of birth, address, and phone number.

• There is no additional fee for a primary caregiver registry identification card.

SECTION C – Person Responsible for a Grow Site and Marijuana Grow Site Address

• Person responsible for the grow site will be subject to a criminal history check for felony convictions.

• You must list the name, date of birth and mailing address of the person responsible for the marijuana grow site. That person must also provide a copy of his or her current Oregon photo ID.

• You must list the physical address of where your marijuana is to be produced. This information is required under Oregon Administrative Rule (OAR) 333-008-0025.

• You may list only one (1) grow site; a PO Box is not acceptable for a grow site address.

• A person responsible for a grow site may be someone other than you or your caregiver.
