To protect the health and safety of the public and our employees, DCP has limited on-site staffing at 450 Columbus Blvd. While mail and phone calls will be processed as quickly as possible, we recommend using our online services, or sending an email to the appropriate division/person instead. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Application Status

Qualifying patient applications can take 30 business days to process. Upon approval of your application, a temporary certificate will be e-mail to you. This temporary certificate is valid for 60 days from the approval date of your application.
The temporary certificate will allow you to use your selected dispensary facility while your permanent Medical Marijuana Certificate is being mailed. Please contact us if you do not receive your Medical Marijuana Certificate after 30 business days.
Temporary registrations must be printed out and kept in your possession at all time. You will not be able to purchase any medical marijuana product without it.


Please call your selected dispensary to schedule an initial appointment PRIOR to visiting the dispensary (this does not apply to renewal certifications, only initial certifications).
Please Note: Your certificate is valid up to one year from the date your physician certified you. It is in your best interest to complete the “Online Application” as soon as possible.
