With a population of over 300,000 residents, St. Paul is the second-most populous city in Minnesota. And we understand why. The gorgeous city is a visual feast for tourists and locals! St. Paul residents pride themselves on preserving the stunning beauty of their city, while also taking measures to prioritize their well-being in equal measure.
Over the years, marijuana use has become increasingly common in St. Paul. However, the possession of recreational marijuana is still illegal in St. Paul. This has led to many residents applying for medical marijuana certification, which allows them to possess and use marijuana for their medical condition(s).
If caught without certification, the possession of recreational marijuana is punishable by a fine of up to $200 and mandatory drug education. In fact, possession of over 42.5 grams of marijuana can result in up to five years in prison and a fine of $10,000 (or more).
If patients aren’t careful and fail to apply for certification, they can face severe consequences.
At IndicaMD, we wanted to take the initiative and make the application process much easier for patients. Our HIPAA-compliant medical cannabis telemedicine service enables patients to easily obtain approval from a licensed physician.

If you qualify, you can register online by filling out a brief questionnaire. You’ll be requested to share your medical history, basic information, and additional details regarding your condition. This information will help us determine your eligibility and allow you to consult our medical marijuana doctor.
Shortly after you receive approval, you can consult our physician through a video chat. Please note that our medical cannabis telemedicine service is HIPAA-complaint so you don’t have to worry about privacy and security.
Following the virtual meeting, our physician will print, sign, emboss, and deliver your medical marijuana recommendation letter/certification. This is one of the most vital pieces of documents required during the application process as it is a prerequisite for registration. Once you’ve obtained the letter, you can send it to the Minnesota Department of Health’s Office of Medical Cannabis (OMC). They will email you the registration link and you can easily follow the instructions and proceed with the remaining process.
