The Imperial County Medical Marijuana Identification Card (MMIC) Program provides patients with the State medical marijuana identification card, a voluntary card registration program that identifies medical marijuana patients under the Compassionate Use Act.
Senate Bill 420 (SB 420) was passed in 2002 to assist law enforcement in identifying Californians who were protected by Proposition 215 and to provide patients and their caregivers with a form of identification that would protect them from arrest and prosecution.
In 2004, The Medical Marijuana Program (MMP) was established by the California Department of Health Services to facilitate the registration of qualified patients and their caregivers, through a statewide identification system. Participation in the program is voluntary for patients and the patient’s primary caregiver. Qualified patients and their caregivers may apply for and be issued an identification card through their county of residence. This card can be used to verify that a patient and/or caregiver has the authorization to possess, grow, transport and/or use medical marijuana in California.
