Medical marijuana is legal in Clovis to the extent permitted by the Compassionate Use Act of 1996 and the MAUCRSA. However, the delivery and retail sales of cannabis in the city are illegal. Residents aged 18 or older may legally participate in the state's medical marijuana identification card program (MMICP). Under this program, participants can possess higher limits of medical marijuana than recreational cannabis users. If they qualify to register under the program but are under 18, they can assign primary caregivers to help administer medical marijuana. The state also issues an optional medical marijuana card for participants under the MMICP, which exempts them from sales tax when purchasing medical marijuana. Clovis residents holding MMICs can purchase medical marijuana from other cities where cannabis retail sales are legal.
Typically, Clovis medical marijuana patients can possess up to 226.8 grams of cannabis concentrate and grow up to six mature or twelve immature marijuana plants indoors.
