San Diego County To Issue Medical Marijuana Cards

Posted: Updated:
The County of San Diego will start taking applications for medical marijuana identification cards in two weeks.

The board of supervisors voted Tuesday to allow state-issued ID cards, starting July 6. It will take about 30 days to process the applications. Then, applications will be taken at the health department on Rosecrans Street.

"A person needs to get the application, bring it in in person. They need to have seen a physician saying they have a serious medical problem for which marijuana would benefit their condition," said County Public Health Officer Doctor Wilma Wooten.

Detailed information on applying for ID cards will be posted on the county website this Friday, June 26.
