Washington, DC, residents can now self-certify for medical marijuana without the need for a doctor’s note.

The DC Council approved a measure in early July, paving the way for adults to verify their medical need for cannabis starting July 7 through the city’s Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration website.

While city-issued medical marijuana cards, which must be renewed every two years, cost as much as $100, the new registration system is free. In addition to the nation’s capital, 38 states have legalized medical marijuana and 19 have approved selling, purchasing and possessing cannabis for recreational purposes.
