We welcome all patients with a medical cannabis card from any US state with a
medical marijuana program. Please bring your certification/card along with a valid,
government-issued photo ID.
If you are visiting TWC for the first time, please make sure to have your state ID AND
state medical marijuana card/certification with you. If you have had a state certification,
please have this printed out as we cannot accept it on your phone.
When visiting for the first time there is also a brief intake process that is required by the Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration(ABRA) will take approximately 10-15 minutes. Please factor this into the time that you plan to visit.
In order to get your medical marijuana card, you’ll need to prove that you have current residency in the District. This is because medical marijuana is legal in Washington D.C., but not in surrounding areas.

The decision to use medical marijuana is between a patient and a healthcare provider , like any other medication.
Y our next step is to obtain a healthcare provider’s recommendation (any DC licensed physician, nurse practitioner, physician’s assistant, naturopath, or dentist can write a recommendation for medical marijuana).
Make your appointment today, so you can get the ball rolling! If your healthcare provider hasn’t issued a medical marijuana recommendation before, he/she can sign up for the program by clicking here. (If your healthcare provider will not write a recommendation, or you don’t feel comfortable asking your healthcare provider to contact Takoma Wellness Center and we will give you a list of a healthcare provider who has written recommendations in the past and are willing to see new patients ).
Each year you will need to obtain a healthcare practitioner’s recommendation and complete the online renewal described above.
