State Agency

Physician Certification

Maine Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has launched a custom online service to allow licensed medical providers to certify patients for the use of medical marijuana. Medical providers ARE NOT required to have a bona fide provider-patient relationship with the patient. The online service will only be available to licensed Maine medical physicians and nurse practitioners in good standing and will produce a standard printed certification for all patients in the Maine Medical Use of Marijuana Program. Its use is mandatory.
