Thank you for your interest in WAMM!
We are accepting new members. Legally we can only accept members who are residents of the state of California with a current valid medical marijuana recommendation. Please note that our Compassion Program for free cannabis is operating at above capacity and is closed.
To become a member, simply download the application, fill it out, and send it in to us via fax, email, or snail mail. We include an intake appointment at no charge for new members either in person or via telephone after your paperwork has been processed.
The intake is a great opportunity to have all your questions answered, and we use that time to help you find the form of cannabis that will work best for you. If you are a caregiver with a patient who is a minor or who is unable to talk, we will gladly speak to you as a proxy for them. Please be aware that due to a high volume of interest in WAMM, it may take 2-3 weeks to take care of your intake, and we do our best to give priority to critically ill patients when scheduling.
The application packet includes a form for your doctor to fill out if you don’t have a recommendation for medical marijuana. If you already have a recommendation from your doctor, you can send in a copy of the form or card that you currently have. We need to have a current California medical recommendation even if you only intend to use cannabis products topically. You can get a recommendation from your doctor, or you can use one of the specialty medical cannabis clinics that are common in California. A good place to find a clinic near you is www.weedmaps.com.
Also included in the packet is a caregiver form. You don’t have to have a caregiver, but it can be convenient to have somebody who can call in orders, share information, or pick up cannabis products for you. This form is not required if you don’t want to designate a caregiver.
Please include a copy of your photo ID as well, and it is helpful for you to include a current list of your medications as well to help us prepare for your intake.
We at WAMM take a special approach to medical marijuana. Beyond having heirloom strains that are organically grown and unique to WAMM, our collective revolves around community. We have weekly meetings that members can attend, and many volunteer opportunities for members looking to make a difference.
WAMM has been serving the Santa Cruz community for nearly two decades. We take pride in working with people and put the patient before profit. Since we grow and make all of our own medicine, we have a greater bond to the medicine that helps and heals.
Make the choice to be a WAMM member because even though you’ll get the highest quality medicine for the lowest donation, you’ll be a part of something bigger. You can help yourself and make the world a better place.
