The steps to obtain a card are set by the Mississippi Department of Health and are listed below:  

Step One: Identify the health condition that qualifies for an MMJ Card and schedule an appointment with your health care provider.  

The only way to obtain an MMJ card is to have a health condition that qualifies for it. The health conditions that qualify are:
