Medical Cannabis Patient Information


Cannabis Patients

KindPeoples is open to all California medical cannabis patients aged 18 or older. Drop by with an original copy of a licensed doctor's recommendation and a state issued photo ID. (Photocopies of doctor recommendations are not accepted.)

Acceptable state issued IDs are as follows:

  • Current, valid California driver's license/state ID

  • Current, valid out-of-state driver's license/state ID

  • Expired out of state driver's license/state ID with a temporary California driver's license

  • Valid US passport

  • Valid foreign passport

  • Current military ID

If you don't have a doctor's recommendation you may be able to find a doctor in your area. Although any licensed doctor is able to provide a cannabis recommendation, choosing a doctor that offers 24 hour verification will greatly reduce the time it takes to process new member applications.

Acquiring a state issued Medical Marijuana Identification Card (separate from a doctor's recommendation) exempts sales tax only. For information about the MMIC please visit the Santa Cruz County website.

By definition, caregivers must be legal adults aged 18 or older, though there are some exceptions, and have significant responsibility for managing the well-being of the patient who has been diagnosed with a debilitating condition.
