Do You Need a Medical Marijuana Card Renewal Doctor in Vermont?

Yes. In Vermont, besides renewing their medical marijuana cards, qualifying patients must also renew their certification for medical cannabis use, and they need a healthcare practitioner to re-assess them. During the evaluation, the doctor will determine whether the continued use of medical marijuana is appropriate for the patient. The doctor will complete and sign a Healthcare Professional Verification Form if they find the patient is still eligible for medical marijuana use.

Any healthcare professional licensed to practice medicine in Vermont can assess a person for medical cannabis. They include osteopathic physicians, physicians, physician assistants, naturopathic physicians, and nurse practitioners. Additionally, professionally licensed persons under substantially comparable positions in Massachusetts, New York, and New Hampshire can verify that a patient has a debilitating condition when renewing their Vermont medical marijuana card.
