WHAT MEDICAL CONDITIONS CAN GET YOU A CARD? The statute specifies several medical conditions, but leaves open the possibility of others: "Cancer, glaucoma, positive status for human immunodeficiency virus, acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), hepatitis C, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Crohn's disease, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis and other conditions as determined in writing by a qualifying patient's physician."

HOW OLD MUST YOU BE TO GET A CARD? The initiative places no limit on a patient's age, though the statute requires "agents" — a term that applies broadly to workers in dispensary operations — to be 21 years of age or over.
