Why does this store have limitations on the purchase method?
Currently in Maryland, there are no state limitations on specific products per Governor Larry Hogan.
To protect the safety of our team and medical patients, we are currently only accepting online orders. Everyone must wear a face covering while at our locations and maintain a distance of six feet. Our Bethesda location is currently allowing only one guest at a time in-store. Our Joppa and Silver Spring locations are curbside pick-up only.
These safety steps will be in place until further notice. You can direct any questions regarding MD safety precautions to: firstname.lastname@example.org

How does a caregiver purchase product for a Medical patient?
You will first need to register as a caregiver with the state of Maryland (website below).
Once you receive your caregiver ID # you can now assign your caregiver number to the patient’s profile. You can now shop on behalf of the patient at any Maryland dispensary. Please ensure you have your caregiver ID # and the patients MMCC ID number ready to go when visiting a Maryland dispensary.
If you are a caregiver and placing an online order, please use the patients name instead of your own. Include the patients FULL NAME and MMCC ID in the notes section. Please also let the PCS know that you are a caregiver when picking up an order and have your ID and the patients’ MMCC ID number ready.
