HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO GET A MEDICAL MARIJUANA CARD? 
The state of Arizona charges a standard $150 fee for each application every year.  Patients who receive SNAP benefits are eligible for a $75 reduction in their state fee.
Additionally, each applicant must pay a fee to the doctor to receive a recommendation for the medical marijuana program.  By working with Level Up, we are able to offer patients a special discounted rate on applications:  Our partnered doctor will charge patients $75 for recommendations.
Typically, a patient will pay:  $150 state fee + $75 recommendation fee = $225 total
An additional $75 fee applies if the patient does not supply medical records and the doctor must conduct an exam.  The exam fee is waived for veterans.
IMPORTANT NOTE: ALL FEES ARE TO BE PAID IN CASH AT YOUR APPOINTMENT.
A $75 hold fee will be required when making an appointment
