Yes, the Cannabis Control Commission has issued waivers that currently allow new patients that have never registered with the Massachusetts medical marijuana program before to conduct their initial clinical visit online via telemedicine. The temporary rule is set to expire on December 31, 2023 unless the Cannabis Control Commission rescinds the policy or adopts it permanently in regulation. Cannabis Control Commission regulations already allow online clinical visits if you are renewing your medical marijuana certification or it’s not your first time registering with the Massachusetts medical marijuana program.
