Medical cannabis became legal statewide in California pursuant to the Compassionate Use Act in 1996. California cannabis laws permit municipalities to restrict the establishment of medical marijuana dispensaries in their jurisdictions. However, no city may forbid its residents from accessing medical cannabis if they qualify for medical cannabis use. In order to legally possess medical cannabis in the City of Norwalk, you must possess a valid medical cannabis recommendation from a California-licensed physician, have a CDPH-issued medical marijuana identification card (MMIC), or be designated as the primary caregiver of a qualified medical marijuana patient. If you are the designated primary caregiver for a medical marijuana caregiver, you must also possess a valid physician's medical cannabis recommendation for the patient before you can purchase medical cannabis from a medical cannabis dispensary.
Qualified patients may purchase medical cannabis from other California jurisdictions where medical cannabis dispensaries are allowed to be established. Such patients may now transport purchased medical cannabis products from the dispensaries to Norwalk in their original packaging and the trunk of their cars. Note that to be issued a valid physician's recommendation or an MMIC, you must have one or more approved medical conditions. Patients with one or more approved conditions who are under 18 are required to designate adult caregivers to purchase and administer medical cannabis on their behalf.
Norwalk medical marijuana patients may purchase and possess up to 8 ounces of cannabis. They can also cultivate up to 6 mature or 12 immature cannabis plants at home. California medical cannabis laws permit Norwalk medical marijuana patients to possess or cultivate higher cannabis amounts than stated, provided their attending physicians have issued approvals for such actions. The cultivation must be conducted indoors and out of public view. Medical marijuana consumption may not occur in public or on federal lands or properties. It is also unlawful to drive under the influence of medical cannabis.
You may obtain a medical marijuana identification card (MMIC) if you meet the eligibility criteria stipulated by the California Department of Public Health. The conditions require you to be 18 or older, reside in Norwalk, and have obtained a medical cannabis recommendation for the use of medical cannabis. To obtain a medical cannabis recommendation from a licensed California physician, you must have an approved medical condition. The medical conditions approved for medical cannabis use in California are:
Seizures, including seizures with epilepsy
Persistent muscle spasms, including spasms related to multiple sclerosis
Any persistent or chronic medical symptom limiting your ability to conduct a significant life activity as defined under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990
After obtaining your medical cannabis certification, you may apply to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LADPH) for an MMIC. State law requires applications for MMICs to be submitted to county public health offices. Unlike other California county public health offices that only accept applications at scheduled appointments, the LADPH allows applicants to submit their applications via mail or scheduled appointments.

The original Los Angeles County Medical Services Program card or Medi-Cal, if applicable
If you submit your MMIC application by mail, you must include a passport-sized color photo taken within the last 30 days.
